It will be my first surround sound system. I'd like to keep it around the $600 mark. I'll be hooking up a PS3, Wii, HD video reciever, and PC. Yes, HDMI is needed. This will be for about a 15x17' bedroom.
I just want some good crisp clean deep sound. I'm not a booming base kind of guy. I like to hear my base, not feel it.
