Default New Home Theater System. I need suggestions!

Alright... I want a home theater system for my room,
I was looking at this:


http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tab%3DWatching

Not bad, it's refurbished, but that's alright with me. It's a trusted seller too.

Any suggestions besides that? My price range is up to $250.

I want one without a DVD player, because I will be using my PS3 as DVD/BD player.

Would that be good for my PS3 and HD digital cable box?

If not, please please please please post some suggestions for me!!


edit> +1 for good help. I'm in need of some valuable help.

I already have speakers, but would they work with it?


-- I know they would, but would they work properly - like they're supposed to???


I have 2 small L and R ones. 2 huge L and R ones (they go to a huge stereo)

and 2 other medium sized L and R ones.

They're old, but I'm using them right now.

Would they work with just a receiver?

ok what i would do is get this
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1171057791920
then use the speakers u have now.

what are u gonna be using it for?
and do the speaker u have now good quality.
really, any speakers will work

BTW that receiver is GREAT i got it for my bday last year and this thing is LOUD, (and im only using two bookshelf speakers) and its hooked to my computer, only cuz my TV is really outdated, little 24inch tube thingy. i hate it

alright thanks!

I have two old bookshelf speakers - they're very old though. They still work fine, but I haven't pushed them to their max.

I have two mid size, and two small ones.

I don't have a center speaker or a subwoofer though.

I would really like the full effect though...

Could you help me find a complete home theater system, without the DVD player?

No. Never, ever buy from Walmart. Ever. They sell enough junk that companies make special SKU's for them that are of lower quality than equivalent electronics elsewhere for roughly the same price (Walmart might be 10% or so cheaper, but the quality shows it).
