JUST WHAT DO YOU WANT IT TO DO???
New to posting b/c I need some advise and decision making help.
I have a Phillips 1080i HDTV (only one HDMI input!)
I am looking to begin building a sound system to compliment my extensive audio collection (cd's and mp3's) and my TV. I also want to be able to run my PS3 through the system as well.
With my current tv only having one HDMI input, I currently run an HDMI switch to flip between the cable box for HDTV and the PS3 for games and blu-ray. Not upgrading TV's anytime soon so I need a receiver that will help me accomplish my sound system goals.
I plan on only begining with a 2 or 3 speaker system (i live in a condo w/ small space) but would like to be able to upgrade to more channels in the future.
System needs to be multi-pupose. Sound quality and versatility is important for it's music capabilities, more important to me than a traditional "home theater" However, would like to be able to have decent surround available, especially for future additions.
Looking to spend $500 - $800 in total.
Where do I begin????? Any and all advice is much appreciated.
