"I'm looking to add a surround sound system to my living room. It's a pretty small room, so I don't need anything too powerful. I've already got an upscaling DVD player, and plan to add a PlayStation 3 later this year so I also don't need one with a DVD/BD player included. I wish I could say money was no object, but this is going to be my Birthday Present from my fiancé and since I'll be purchasing the PS3 soon I need to keep it in the low to mid range. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated."
He asked for solutions under $500, so feel free to suggest any HTIB that might fit -- Sony's 3D ready, LG kicks in VUDU and Harman Kardon has refreshed hardware just to mention a few -- or would you try to talk him into a higher end / custom system? The power is in your hands, use it wisely.
