    i guess for that budget, you can get HTIB (home-theather-in-a-box). Already includes the receiver/player and 5.1 speaker systems. from court's website, the onkyo htib looks decent. onkyo is known to produce very good amp/receiver systems but not too sure about the speakers.

    i believe some htib speakers comes with a stand. but if you have kids that play around, better to hang them using brackets.

    but if you're serious about building your HT, go for separates. you'll have a dedicated receiver, player, and set of speaker systems. of course, that entails a lot of moolah

    I got a Astone media player that can output DTS (passthru, via SPDIF) but cannot downmix DTS

    So.. Now it plays those media files with DTS but no audio (bcoz cannot downmix so no o/p via the audio or HDMI cable).. Any recommendation for a cheap DTS system?

    it looks like it has something to do with the licensing cost. if i want a system that can decode dts-encoded audio, I would go for known brands like denon, onkyo, or even harman kardon. they do have HTIBs anyway. the trade off is of course the cost. but i think other brands will do, since nowadays DTS/DTS-ES, Dolby/Pro Logic II are widely supported.

    DD output is quite standard and common. now market have Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD.

    but then, how many movies are on Dolby True-HD and DTS-HD these day? DD and DTS have been around for quite sometime...

    agree. but in 2 to 3 years time, almost all movies are definitely HD just like the case of blu ray movies. at first i only see few being sold at shops. now its everywhere.
