If you are looking for a home theater system, check out www.axiom.com
They are a Canadian company that sells direct to the public.
When I bought my system 2 years ago, I did TONS of research and spent about 2K on speakers from them. I then bought a $300 Pioneer Receiver and never looked back.
An equivilant system bought from Best Buy or any Home Theater specialty store would cost easily 5 to 6 grand.
I love the system, the customer service was great, and 2 years later, I have not had any problems. My CDs friggin crank through this system. My DVD concert videos literally shake the house. When I watch the initial war part in Saving Private Ryan, you can feel the explosions in your gut and hear the bullets wizzing by your head!!!!!
Best investment I have ever made!!!
