Hello everyone, im 18 and go to college in Rhode Island, US. I started my first AV system when I was 12, with a Sony receiver and a set of 5.1 speakers that have now since died of 6 years of use. Long story short, im in the market for a new TV and a new Home theater setup. Im looking to spend 2-300 on the tv, and 2-300 for the audio portion, I figured here was the best place to start learning and looking. For someone with a sub-500$ budget, would you recommend an AIO system or a Seperates system? Any suggestions or particular brands that are good? Thanks for the help Ive also begun reading all the articles on Home Cinema Choice.
