I am looking for a 5.1 setup. I already have a DVD/VCR combo, so if that is included with the amplifier and will cause the price to go higher then I don't need that, I need just an amplifier. My game platforms include: NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube, PS2, and Genesis. And while this is no concern now, it would be possible to connect a laptop to the sound system right? So it seems that most people suggest I don't buy a subwoofer from this site? Is it that they are just expensive? Because I'm willing to pay a little more if the quality is better.

From what I've seen from other around here, when comparing the EP350 to subs offered by HSU and SVS, most feel the other two are a little cheaper for the same performance. They also sound a little different from what I've read but never heard them myself.

I believe opinions have changed when talking about the EP500 and EP600. For the size room you are talking about here, I'm sure many here will suggest a sub other than axiom.

Don't be fooled though, I think the EP350 is a fine sub. Not sure about their smaller subs though.

Shag,
How do you like your Sony RPLCD. I'm seriouly considering getting it, even with all the good words to be had for DLP's.

My Son; who is very heavy into gaming, would like to suggest either five or seven identical speakers, due to the way the sounds are so directional in many of the games, and being able to pinpoint sounds within the room is important.

Don't mean to thread hijack.... My Sony RP LCD is fantastic. As far as I'm concerned, just as good as a plasma (well maybe not but very damn close) and a thrid of the cost compared to the plasma a would have bought.

Very bright and clear picture even on a sunlit room. I would definitely recommend one. The DLPs are nice to but I like these better. A little smaller than the DLPs too.

Gotta agree with you on the Sony. I have had my 50" Sony for about a month now and find the picture quality fabulous!

I think I am starting to make a decision.

Fronts: Pair Millennia M22ti Bookshelves
Center: VP100 Center
Surrounds: Pair QS4 Surrounds
Sub: Hsu STF1? I looked into this a little. So it's a good choice for my size room? The EP350 is probably too much unneeded power, right?
Amplifier: ? No clue, I don't know how these work, they have to have something to do with the watts right? I can check with the companies listed, but I'm not sure what I'm looking for. With the products listed above, what would be the best amplifier?

Check out Ubid.

Denon 885
Onkyo 602

Receivers with plenty of power for your system and priced well. Denon is refurbed, but that is not an issue with most forum members. $300 or less.

On the amplifiers it says the power specifcations in watts for something like the front is 85 watts. but the speakers themselves are 200 watts, does that mean that over 100 watts are not used (ie wasted)?
