I know that there are some audiophiles in this forum. I need your help.
We are currently finishing our basement, and want to get ideas for a home theater system. Upstairs we have a 50" plasma, with a PS3 and HD cable. We also bought a Bose CineMate to boost sound...but, that's about it. We had Netflix for a while, but dropped the service. We pretty much stayed with a setup from 2003 and stuck with it. I don't know enough about new technology. I want to update our equipment, and rather than listen to a pushy salesman, I thought I'd get your inputs. Everyone here tends to be informed, and approachable, and that's my kind of information source.
We'd like to put in at least a 50" LED Smart TV, and some kind of surround sound. If I can keep everything around $1000-$1300, I'll be thrilled. I know woot.com has ridiculous deals on refurb TV's, and that's where I'm leaning. Is a refurb TV worth the risk?
As far as a sound system, I figured wiring everything before we put the walls up will be easiest. Is that still necessary, or are wireless speakers an option? What are some decent setups? What all equipment do I need?
Any advice, no matter how dumb you think it might be, is greatly appreciated. PM if necessary. Thanks gang!
