I am suffering system envy after looking at a number of the systems being used by members here. I almost didn't post my system but I think that in the "Bang for Buck" department for a system that is a great compromise between movie surround and music, I've done pretty darn good. Yamaha RX-V661 receiver: $75. I purchased 1 for $50 but HDMI card was bad. Bought a second "parts" unit for $25 and the HDMI card was good. easy change-out. Onkyo Fusion AV S-89 tower speakers: $20 (1 needs a tweeter, I have a post in speaker section for this). These are vintage but I cannot find any information on them anywhere. Yamaha NS-C225: $5 Excellent center speaker. Denon USC-08 bookshelf speakers: $18 for shelf stereo and speakers, sold the stereo for $30 with different speakers. So -$12. Harmon Kardon Sub TS10, 12" sub: $20. has bad amp so bought a Yamaha RX-V990 for $10 to power it. So, a system for $108 that looks and sounds great.
