I've yet to see a an all encompasing system for less than $500US that was 
worth the money. If your at all interested in it sounding good expect to 
spend closer to $1000US. My opinion, buy an Energy or Paradigm satelite 
system, which will cost ~$500 and a standalone receiver, a good one can be 
had for $300.
