I got an "upgrade" to my sound system. I've been running with a set of Logitech PC speakers as my audio set. It sounded pretty darn good, but when the source was soft, I had to run them at full volume and sometimes I wished there was a little more volume to be squeezed out. I saw my son had an old stereo that looked a lot beefier than my PC speakers and asked him if I could give that a try, but he had better things. He had an old 7.1 AVR (Sony STR-DE675), no HDMI but it offers 100 watts of per channel and two Floor standing 4 way speakers (Sony SS-F6000P ) in storage. 4 foot tall towers must be a guy thing, but they look surprisingly good next to a 104" screen. He can't find the remote, do you think that is going to be a problem, Rolling Eyes Laughing The projector is doing the input selection since the AVR doesn't have HDMI. The AVR is just amplifying the sound.

Volume and tone and lip-synch is great even if I am feeding this with the 3.5 jack from the projector. However, my PC gaming speakers with Subwoofer did a better job with the explosions, helicopters, and other deep rumbling sounds. I am going to have to pick up some kind of powered subwoofer. Because this is in my basement and sees maybe 6 hours of use a week I don't want top of the line, but I don't want it to be outclassed with those Sony budget floor speakers either. Any ideas?

sorry for the long delay. i'd look at these powered subwoofers and pick based on your budget.
