I've been looking around for home theatre setups, and just getting confused by the multiple terminology out there.
Basically, I'd like to get a complete TV / theatre system for $1500 total. I don't have HDTV right now, but that's definitly something I want. I'd also like to get 5-speaker (5.1 I think it is, 5 speakers + subwoofer), a DVD player, and preferably something that will also play CDs and MP3s.
I really don't want to just wander into best buy and pick up whatever is there. I see HDTV sets that have all kinds of connections, and not sure of which is best for what. I also see AV receivers that would appear to make the TV connections somewhat of a mute point.
Any recommendations for a total solution?
