I'm looking for a nice quality home audio set up with multiple speakers, basically just to play music from my computer or ipod in my room. There are obviously a lot of options out there (via bose, best buy, target, walmart etc). I want something specifically that can get pretty loud without losing sound quality. I don't think i would want to pay more than 200$. Any suggestions? please back up your suggestions with reasoning.
For starters, Bose is pure overpriced garbage. See the link.
Next, $200 is a bit low for anything good. Sorry. The minimum decent system that I could recommend would be the Onkyo 3500, $250 at Amaz*n.
A better pick would be a Yamaha 371 5.1 receiver from Amaz*n for $180, matched with a set of Polk 6750 5.1 speaker set from Newegg, until tomorrow for $170.
