    Thinking of getting a more reasonable system for long term use, otherwise usually there will be free HT system given out if buy those Samsung LCD TV. So the $299 system may be out for me.

    Get a room just for entertainment and soundproof it, then you're set.

    I ever tried to enquire about these HT or Hifi systems.. even the simplest or reasonably cheap setup also cost at least $1000-1500.

    The Samsung LCD tv 32" costs about $1500, the HT i mentioned previously costs about $800. Those so call free HT is already factor into the cost. Samsung minus point i heard so far is poor tech support service as compared to Sony. Get from hdb shophouse cheaper. Harvey/courts/best denki are about $100 more expensive in general. But they can provide extended warranty with additional cost.

    hee... my sub is already 2.1k and i know others like wind30 whose sub is even more... to me, the sat speakers can get those mid-range ones but sub must be solid cause movies have a lot of low freq effects which require a good sub...

    And yes i own a SVS ... just got poisoned by Earthquake's performance though
    hahaha... yes i'm one of them...

    I've heard the earthquake recently... its a sealed 15" one. It cost 3k plus but i still felt that the SVS subs are a much better buy except for their footprint.

    2.1K for a sub.

    I was thinking of 1.5K , the most 2K for the whole system
