imho......one of the common traps in making this type decision is the sound room at the retailer. they can compare systems at will with the flip of a switch and you are astounded by the differences.
however, remember that at home there is only one system and one room. there is NOTHING to compare your home system with, therefore, whatever you get is going to sound GREAT!
same goes for all those gold plated / high end cables the will want you to buy. when you get home, it's not going to make a lick of difference to your ear unless you are a professional sound producer
