Re: Entering the world of high quality sound...
I'm not completely sure on room size. I'll have to check later, but I'm guessing about 15'X20'.
Budget wise, I would like to stay under $7500, but that's not set in stone. I'm really just looking for good loudspeakers, a decent center channel, surrounds, and sub with a good enough receiver to run it all. I would look into getting an HD-DVD player and PS3 as well.
I'm not sure what you mean by MC audio? I'm probably going to be most happy with just a simple surround system. I'm not really much of a tweaker. I would rather just have it set and calibrated and leave it alone, as I'm not comfortable enough yet to try anything serious.
