I  am thinking on buying my first real home theater system, I have found
good deals for these, but have no clue if they are compatible, good buys, or
i can get more bang for the buck.
The receiver can be found for 330 and the floorstanding  speakers  for 220,
I plan to use them for casual music listening and tv/DVD's at home in a not
so big apartment, I am not concerned about it been loud but i would like
good sound.
Thanks in advance for your advise.

Hmm look for a good Amp by Denon or Yamaha, before HK.

Have a computer with 5.1 sound or better on board?
Feed that to a computer speaker system such as these;

or

Best 5.1 bang for the buck there is.

You will get more features for the money and higher power, higher power
means better headroom at lower volumes which translates to better
sound.

Denon's remotes suffer in my opinion over Yamaha's though.
Yamaha makes an easy to use and nicely laid out remote compared to them.

Higher power ratings but higher current amps will put out more real power.
I haven't cheked out the hk but I know their older stuff was good, a "50w"
hk would kick the snot out of a "100w" sony for exaample.  Power ratings are
unregulated and grossly unreliable.

I purchased a Sony STR-DE998 last week.  It's a 110 WPC 7.1 channel
receiver.  Well, I got it home and wasn't impressed at all.

I took it back and put a few more dollars into a Harman Kardon AVR 335
(its rated at 55 wpc x 7).  There is no comparison between the Sony and
the HK.  The HK is far superior, everything sounds much better.

you will get nothing but great sound from the Harman Kardon.

Personally, I think Yamaha is the most conservatively rated receiver on
the market. I shudder to think what kind of power it's really putting
out. But, these are all great receiver suggestions.
