Sorry if this is something that is a re-post but I am a college student moving into an apartment next year with 3 other roomates and we are discussing home theater system. One of my questions is, is it better to buy a whole system that comes together or the reciever and speakers seperate? Also, what is a good, not so expensive (college budget) , entry level brand that would have bass? and what are things to look out for to not get? Again, I apologize if this is a wrong post to be here, but I know I have seen some very Audio Savvy people on this website.

Craig's List is your friend. Some like to have the newest stuff out and you can pick up their old stuff that works for cheap. That way you get high end without the $700+ price tag. Like this one...

I am not a fan of all-in-one setups, like having each part on its own. If there are a few of you buying then each can buy a part and take it if you move out.

all in ones can save you some bucks, but the problem is that if one component fails like the dvd laser or amp, you gotta send in the whole system for repair whereas separate components allow you to just take care of the particular component at hand. Having separate components allow you to choose quality models as well.

I was able to get a much powerful Boston Acoustics sub that put out 250 rms watts for my onkyo receiver/speaker system. The sub that came with it put out a measely 50 rms and didn't even sound like it was on!
