Quest to build a Sweet Entertainment Center Part 3 (Superb Sound)

It has been some time for this part of the quest. So much research has been put into finding the right sound system. First there was the matter of price, was I going to spend upwards of 1000+, somewhere midrange of $500-600, or go with bargain. And let’s not forget style is still a major factor here, as this wouldn’t be G Style if it wasn’t.

Onkyo System

I decided after much research and pure luck running into this, I went with the Onkyo HTSR800S. After much research online, I discovered this to be a great brand. Now while I ran into the black version of this model, the silver had more style to it. This model is a Surround Sound 7.1 system, which consist of 7 speakers and a big subwoofer. This model also includes a microphone that the system uses to calibrate all the speakers for you, so each gives the best sound for the room. And all this cost $399.99 at J&R in New York City. You might be able to still find it there, but if not most places are selling it for $499.99. This system pumps out a total 1000 Watts of power and I must say from my beginning tests, this model is a steal for the price.

Onkyo Reciever

So now I have the 7.1 Surround Sound system to go with the HDTV, and the Media streamer. I’m almost complete in my quest. Next I must decide, which side of the format war I’m going to go with…HD-DVD or Blu Ray! As you can’t complete a sweet entertainment center without picking a HD movie player to complete the rest of this HD equipment. Stay tuned
