[Request] Good Home Theatre for $700

Recommended Posts

jeffeh    0

Hey first post! I'm only 16 and am interested in getting a new home theatre system for my room but my budget is only $700 so I wanted to know if anyone could recommend a couple for me. I was thinking would it be better to get those mini cd player stereos and just hook it up to my tv?

Thanks, Jeff

For $700, it will be hard to get a good system, but Onkyo and Yamaha are the direction to look. YHT-450 is a nice system. I believe you get the 5740 receiver which is pretty damn nice. The system also has a piano black finish to it which is very classy.

100 watts total or per channel? I'm really hoping it's per channel.

For that much money I would probably buy a receiver and 5.1 or 6.1 speaker set OR get one of those combo deals with the receiver and speakers (and maybe DVD as well if you need that). Some of those systems are really cheap. It will not be spectacular but it will do, especially for your first system and for your bedroom.

Something like this maybe:

Yamaha Complete System

I have not heard this so I am not recommending it, just want to give you an idea of what I was talking about. There are plenty more systems like this. If you go to a store like Best Buy you can listen to them and see what you like.

Hope I am not to late :pinch:

I work at BB. That system is nice but way over priced for the quality of the speakers.
