Re: Is there a good "home theater in a box" solution?
While not a full 5.1 system the Sherwood 2.1 virtual surround sound systems are usually pretty good and cheap. I had one in my guest bedroom for a spell and was quite impressed.
The Yamaha sound bar (all-in-one under plasma speaker) is also impressive. Again these are all virtual surround sound systems.
Sony has a new HTB with some very small speakers however, I don't know the model number. It premiered at this year's CEDIA show.
