    Hey HomeTheatreGuy,
    Do you use/recommend the Bose system for surround sound? We're using JBL 5.1 or 7.1 (not sure) but it's sound is either too much or too little, never quite right....

    Yes I have installed plenty of Bose systems and they perform very well. A few years back I didn't like how proprietary their systems were, but their current Lifestyle systems offer plenty of inputs and they come w/ their own iPod/iPhone docks. The remotes are also very easy to program and learn, though I still prefer the MX450 and MX880.

    One problem with many all inclusive home theater-in-a-box type systems, as well as entry level receivers, is as you said - you need to crank the volume to get them to perform.

    Personally I prefer Sony receivers, especially their ES line, combined with the PS3 for a Blu Ray player. I also like using Episode Speakers and Velodyne subs.

    Hope this helps.

    TheatreGuy, can you help with an existing installed system to make sure it is configured correctly?

    @afgm... I'd be happy to come take a look. What components do you have in your system?
