Well there are so many ways to go and they all cost money. I have way over 100k in 2ch and hidef equipment. While I haven't bought much in the last few mos.some of my pieces are old.and some new. To me buying equ.is also a learning process. You have to learn what floats your boat. Just listening to somebody else's system isn't the same as living with it.---I'm not saying this because I think that it's a fact, but your boat might not float; listening to my stuff. (I have no sub) To me, the addiction is too the music. I also have an addiction to "sounds" that occur in movies. I remember taking our kids to the Burbank airport to hear the jets taking off. So down to the nitty gritty; how much do ya' wanna spend ????--- Do you want to concentrate on 2ch or ht?--or both? I wasn't exactly sure but maybe both?? There are many entry level systems that will give you much, much, pleasure. One could pay near 5k for a Denon receiver---but you get all your amps with the package. Just adding some decent speakers would be pretty nice. For these 5 speakers?--Well there are so many choices. Rather than "box-HT" speakers I say buy something like Aerial,Revel---where in you can buy closer to the top of the line for the fronts--then further down for the matching rears, and their center. Somewhere in this odyessey one might want to get a quality 2ch amp and preamp,and a dedicated cd plater. You would be able to use the 2ch parts as part of the ht. 'fronts'. Again, how large is your passion? How large is your wallet?--- Heck how large is your house? Different rooms?-- Not necessarlly last but DON"T forget the room treatment.
