Otherwise, why spend so much $$?
Be more specific about what type of equipment/features you are looking for. E.g. 'All in one'/HTIB systems, separates; AV receiver, blu ray player, iPod docking compatibitility, etc.
I am in need of advice
What I'm looking for: Cleanest, high quality sound, at medium and low volume.
What I don't need: I don't need a ton of bass since I'll be in an apartment complex (though I would like a little), and I don't need the speakers to reach extremely high volume (noise constraints). I don't prefer a 5.1 system since my couch will be against the back wall (limited space), but I might be persuaded.
What I'm using it for: Primarily (in order of importance) movies, gaming, music.
My Budget: Around $2500
I really appreciate your comments. Also, let me know if you have any questions and I'll be sure to answer!
I just purchased a TV so I am currently working with stock speakers.
