The system I currently have is a Sony 5.1 HTIB that is from 2001 with no hdmi hookups plus it is constantly going into "protect" mode. So with tax season approaching I am hoping to talk the wife into using some of the money for a new surround system.
Hook Ups would be:
HD Cable Box
I want to be able to run hdmi cables from the cable box and blu-ray player to the receiver and then one hdmi cable up to the tv. The Wii is still just standard composite cables.
Budget would be something like $400 max.
I was looking into the Onkyo 5.1 HTIB system. But from what I read it is just a repeater. Does this mean I would have to run seperate audio cables as well as the hdmi cable?
I also have now seen this speaker package from parts express:
All I would need is a receiver. Is there a decent one out there for about $200 shipped max that would run these?
