I have 5 of the SLX satellite speakers ($300 ea.), obviously only 1 sub ($300) and my receiver was $950. You can get a great receiver for less money too.
The sound is incredible and my room is huge (15'x25' with 18' ceilings). It's connected to a 65' Panasonic plasma.
Bottom line, if you spend a little more money, you can definitely get a great sounding system.
Nice set up.
Friend's folks just had the Elite 70' LCD installed, and idk, I'm a bit underwhelmed. I have yet to see plasma-like blacks from an LCD.
