Hello guys. I'm pretty new to this field and don't know much about hi fi, the lingo and not even the basics. I want to buy myself an audio system pretty soon for home use. The room I want to place it in is aprox. 5x3 meters in size. My budget goes up to $500 so it won't be anything fancy. I just want to be able to make a wise choice for what I can afford. I need to be able to hook it up to a laptop and maybe to the TV. Mostly I want to use it for music and I won't be using it on very high volume very often, so quality is a priority. I like my music loud, but not very loud most times. Design is not very important. So please if you can help with advice, maybe some links, it would be much appreciated. I'm here for your questions also.
