1. A blu-ray player (if you want wireless networking you'll pay around 160-180. Samsung and Sony both make decent players in this range. You can also get them for 120-140 if you don't need the wireless networking.
I'm looking into getting a system for my hubbie for our anniversary. I heard that it's best if you pick the pieces you need instead of buying a bundle. Granted, buying the bundle would be easier if there's a good one. All we have right now is a Samsung LED tv and a Wii. I'm guessing I need to get the following:
Two speakers for the corners (hopefully wireless)
A sub-woofer(whatever that does)
Anything else to make the watching experience more vivid and entertaining.
I'd like to stay below $800 which I think is very do-able as long as I stay away from BOSE.
Would greatly appreciate any advide anyone can provide as I am completely out of my element. FYI - this is for the basement
