Finally Got a Home Theater System to go with the HDTV!

Well guys...It's about time I finally shelled out enough money to get a wireless home theater speaker system. To start out with, in case you guys didn't already know...I bought a 48" LCD HDTV (projection screen...not a flat) to go in the livingroom along with the XBOX 360 as my main focus peice which I use as a DVD player and MP3 player as well. I also have the DVR box with absolutely all the channels that are available (remember, I work for the cable company as a deployment engineer so it's free!). With all that, something was definitely missing and I didn't even think it was that much of a big deal. I thought the sound would be better with a home theater system, BUT NOT THIS GOOD! If you are serious about movies or video games and you already have that big screen or HDTV, go ahead and spend $300+ to get yourself a nice sound system with subwoofer. You will absolutely get lost in your entertainment experience. It makes everything so much better. This is the model I just purchased:

I had to purchase a wireless system because I did not want to run wires across the floor or ceiling to get the rear speakers to work. This system works flawless and nothing interferes with the signal at all. I am very satisfied with this product. It seems that a 500watt system is MORE than enough for the space I am in and it really rumbles. A similar sized system would probably do most people justice unless you live in a mansion...Watching movies and rockin the games are a totally different and WAAAAAYYY better experience...
