Help with setting up a Home Theater
Right now I am just looking for a good receiver for two Sony SS-B3000
At first I was just going to get a 2 channel receiver to save money. But then I saw that for $100 more I could get this 5.1 receiver.
So could I just buy the two speakers now and then just add on a sub and two back speakers later? thanks

Well how much do you want to spend ????? If you are within the US you should take a look at NEWEGG or Accessories4les beter deals and beter speaker choice compared with the Sony`s on your link , from amazon what they have for a great price is the BIC america subs like the F12 .
Don`t forget that you should match the L/R speaker with your center oneSharp Aquos 52 , Center Polk CS2II , Tower Polk Montors 60 ,Surround 2 Quest + 2 KEF ,Subs + 2 Klipsch RW 10D and Klipsch RPW 10 , HD DVD A35 , XBOX 360 , PS3 , Sony BDP-S360 ,Bell IPTV , Pioneer VSX-1125-K , 100" Motorized Elite screen VMAX , PJ:Epson 8350

$190 for this 5.1 receiver...
There are other options that are 7.1 which are available for about the $250 you showed for that second product. As you spend more you obviously will get more.
I would avoid Sony and stick with Pioneer, Yamaha, or Denon. Onkyo has a lot of bang for the buck, but I don't think it is as good of a product as the other three I listed.
For speakers, you have a billion choices. Some 8" 3-way in-wall Monoprice speakers certainly aren't a bad way to go for under $100.AV Integrated - Theater, whole house audio, and technology consultation during the build and installation process in the Washington DC, Northern VA, and MD area.

As I said, you have a billion choices. Bic has some decent values for not a lot of cash, and I'm sure you can get some other recommendations for speakers as well. I've personally used the Monoprice in-walls and they sound phenomenal for the money, and good regardless of money, but not as good as some bookshelf speakers do.
I always recommend a subwoofer, but a good one costs money. Granted a good subwoofer never really needs to be upgraded, but they are still pricey. I don't know what cheap subwoofers sound decent.AV Integrated - Theater, whole house audio, and technology consultation during the build and installation process in the Washington DC, Northern VA, and MD area.
