I wouldn't pay a penny over $249,950 for that.

Me neither. To bad thats there lowest model. i would hate to see how much the bigger ones cost. Its hard to tell if thats for a movie theater or a home. I know that the theater i go to all the time uses DLP technology, so im wondering if they use this same brand.

I wouldnt say that you only pay for the name with Monster cable. I have used a number of different cables out there and the Monster Cable is pretty good for the price.

I have a Yamaha RX-V1 receiver, Polk LS-90's, Polk surrounds, Sunfire sub, but I am still waiting on a TV that really impresses me. Maybe next year I will be ready for a new TV. haha

Yeah i can see your point on the quality, but still they do charge a hefty amount. For example there home theater surge protectors are way to over priced imho. For $200 from monster you get a 6125 joule rated surge protector with 8 outlets. for $75 from cyber power you get a 6000 joule rated surge protector with 8 outlets. Other than that monster does have dang good quality wire. If i didnt know how to make my own i would most likely buy from them or acoustic research.

So do you like the Yamaha receiver. i have not played with them enough to have my own POV. However I do know that they make a wicked baby grand piano. I like Polk audio. They are pretty well engineered imho. I like them better than bose. Whats your guy's opinion on Bose? I think they are really good but i think with good planing you can build just as good for a better price.

I think Bose is a decent product, but certainly no where near top of the line. For the average consumer Bose is great. For an audiophile or someone who thinks they have a good ear then Bose is middle of the road IMO.

Yamaha makes amazing sound equipment.

See thats what i say about Bose also. I think i have a good ear due to guitar and being in the music hobby. I do not know how to read music so i have to write my songs by ear.

I agree that there is better equipment out there. I wonder if you can build a better system than Bose for the same price. If you had $2000, do you think you could pull together a amazing sound system. I bet you could.

I bought my Polks back in 1995 or 1996, if I were looking at speakers today I would probably go for the Paradigm Studio or Signature series. Bose is nice, it just depends on what you really want from your speakers. I like to crank mine at times and rock out with my bleep out. jk With the Bose you really couldnt do that. I had a party one time and my neighbor, across the street, said her windows were shaking, Bose wouldnt go that loud.

I like the Yamaha, I have had just about every other receiver out there and the Yamaha just fit me better. Sounds good, but if I did it again I wouldnt go for the top of the line.

So Nachef, were do you purchase your yamaha, store or internet. There is a store by me named Inomative car audio and they also deal with home theater. They have some awesome awesome stuff. I have not heard any paradigm stuff yet. Does best buy carry them.

Yeah i like to rock out but most of all i love movies with deep bass that just rattles your fillings out of your face. thats the best. I wanna try the Harman/Kardon.

I used to buy my stuff from Broadway Audio Video on State and about 3000 So. He no longer has the store running, he only does installations now.

I have not been to Innovative Car Audio, they do sell the Paradigm but not sure what they actually have in stock. I want to go see but I know they dont budge on prices. I could have gotten $800 off of a $1900 set at Broadway, but Innovative wont do that.

What Harmon/Kardon are you talking about? I have not looked into subs for years, after I got my Sunfire I stopped reading about them.

Hmm, 30th and state huh. i havent seen it but then again im not lookin for it either. Yeah innovative will not budge at all. I might go through them for my car audio, but then again thats a crap load of money. They did however love my 200$ sound card for the pc. Maybe i have seen paradigms at innovative. The ones im thinking of were about 5 feet tall and cost about $10,000 each. They could have been JBL's but im not sure.

Ok the harman/kardon i want is there receiver.
harman/kardon
its gorgeous, i love it. this is the one my friend has that he has the studio monitors hooked up to as his fronts and center. then he has his 20 inch sub that is inclosed in a 4x2 box, hooked to a 4000 wat amp then that amp hooks to the receiver. his sub is behind his wall. His wall has two 1x1 port holes cut into it for the the bass.
