I don't like theses kind of audio systems...its like buying a Dell...lol (no offense)

I like professional stuff like this: http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/pn...etailComponent

I have a very old version of this kind of A/V receiver.

well yeah thats sweet and all, but i want to be able to eat and not live in a card board box for the next year. i really wanted the receiver and get some sweet speakers but i'd have to wait until like next year to save....oh and on the subject of saving up......HA! thats a joke. never have been able to save $$ for the life of me. i mean look where i work, now if i owned the darned company then i would have the best of the best but i only make $10 an hour and the cost of living in San Diego is outrageous (800 for rent, 200 for utilities and cell phone, doesn't leave much for anything else.) so thats why i got what i got. and it sounds waaaaay better than those logitechs that i got that cost more than this system. and i thought how could i go wrong w/sony's.

jaksbak actually the speakers I was recommending were around $100 for a pair. Boomboxes & other cheap bookshelf all-in-one sound systems generally use the cheapest drivers, meaning they are usually unshielded. Here's info on magnetic shielding
