I need a solution to my home theatre / music system. I have looked long and hard, but the problem is I dont know what I really want. So here is the drill. Currently have foxtel IQ2 and an old LG lifestyle system. I just upgraded the TV (finally got rid of the CRT!) to one of those fancy LCD panels. I also have gig's of mp3's. Everytime I buy a CD it gets ripped and now I am starting to buy music online, so CD player is not required. What I want, is some sort of solution that allows me to: Play the occasional DVD (or I guess bluray now) with surround sound Watch foxtel (if I can get foxtel to play on outside tv even better) Listen to MP3's - both inside the house, and in my entertainment area. But, I dont want anything imposing. I like the minimalist approach to all things. So big speakers and amps and crap are out, unless I can hide them somehow. I like the bose lifestyle stuff, but I reckon its over priced plus it cant play dvd/blueray these days, but that sort of speaker arrangement is good. I have also looked at HTPC stuff, but its all way to big. There is a slot in my TV cabinet that is 8cm by 55cm, to tight for most HTPC stuff. So I turn it over to the wise NR community to help me find a solution.
