What sound system would you recommend for an HD television?

Asked by flutherother (28318points) August 15th, 2010

Flatscreen high definition TV’s may give a great picture but poor sound quality. An external sound system is the answer but which one would you recommend.

The best you can afford and one that doesn’t take over your room. Even just a powered subwoofer alone can make a monster difference in your sound experience. Go to a Best buy and test drive the systems they have and again what sounds great there may not sound as good at your home. Find a qualified s ales associate who really knows how to compare what you have and your room to what they have for sale!

You need to know the layout/sq.ft. of the room where your TV is, where the TV is placed in the room, how high he ceiling is, etc. Unless you have an airplane hangar for a viewing room, a decent Onkyo or Denon home theater set-up will probably be fine. For mine, I got separate components: a Pioneer receiver, a Yamaha 5-disc changer that I could tweak to go all-region, KLM speakers. My viewing room isn’t very big, so I didn’t go nuts. I’d love to update the whole lot, but as it is, it works fine.

Cheers! thanks for the feedback. I’m going to look for a system that can play my MP3’s and radio as well.
