Ask Cheap Dave - Stefan From Sweden
Heya Dave! I'm Stefan and I come from Sweden. The past 1-2 years I've got very interested in home theaters. I\'ve started to be on forums and talk with other people with the same interest. Now I've come to the point where I want my own HT! I have some problems tho.. I just turned 18 and I'm still in school and I live with my mom, hehe, which leads me to that I only have my own room in our flat. And since I'm still in school I have a low budget and can't put alot of cash into the HT. more →

Low cost system recommendation

I enjoy getting questions on this site. Here is one I recently received:

Hey Dave:

I found your review on the same TV I just bought. I wanted to know what Surround System you suggest I buy to go with this TV? I look forward to your reply and thank you!

I responded:

I am glad you found my site. I have a lot of general advice on Home theater stuff. Particularly how to get the most bang for your buck. So check out my articles. But to answer your question I will have to ask you some questions. What is your price range? Are you mainly going to watch movies or TV? What other components do you have (receiver, subwoofer etc.)

I look forward to your reply

Whatever you do, don't run out and buy a Bose system.
