You've made your choice doubly tough by first limiting your choices to
the HT-in-a-box solutions, most or all of which aren't very good,
relatively speaking, and then making it even tougher by giving
yourself just a $300 budget.

If you already have good speakers that you're happy with, I would
probably build a component system a piece at a time, starting with a
receiver that has the input/output connectivity options, output power,
and other features that you want.

Re: What would be best buy out of the box??
I would agree with the last post.  There is nothing out of the box that is
truly worthwhile for any price, in my opinion.  For the price you described,
it would be difficult to get a decent receiver.  However, if you go used,
you may be able to find something on e-bay or some similar website.  If you
want a nice system and cost is an issue, build it slowly beginning with a
nice receiver.  You could then find a speaker system out of the box that
could work.

If the area that you will play media is relatively small, you can spend less
money and go 50-75 watts per channel RMS. Larger areas should be at least
100 watts per channel.  I would put the lion share of spending into the
speakers/subwoofer rather than the receiver.  Good luck.
