I don't know anything about home theater stuff, or any audio jargon at all so please explain it to me like I'm a child =)

Anyways, I have a 26D43U Sharp LCD/HDTV, I was going to post a link to it but the forum won't let me since I'm new.

The audio is terrible. So I guess I need to buy speakers or some kind of theater system. Also, I live in an incredibly small house, with a very small living room. I don't need anything fancy. I just want better audio for TV, movies and my Xbox360. I'm going to buy an HDMI cable today for my XBOX360 as suggested by a friend. We have HD cable, and I've basically been swapping out the cables depending on which device I'm using cable or xbox.

Anyway yeah I need better audio, but nothing crazy. I can't really spend more than 500 bucks. If it's possible, I'd prefer a couple of floor speakers and that's it.

Looking at my TV, budget and environment can anybody make some suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Hello Steve, Welcome to the Shack!

Do you have a budget in mind? You'll need at least $400 in order to get yourself into something that will last and have decent sound.

I can really only spend 400-500 :(

Best Buy has some "packages" or whatever, with speakers, dvd player, etc. for 400-500 but I wasn't sure if that was the way to go or not. Since it's a small house and I'm not really that into this stuff I really just wanted something small/humble, just some better audio for the TV.

This Onkyo system will give you nice sound and will last you a few years compared to most in that price range. If you buy it through the link I gave you you also save some money compared to buying int at any of the stores.

I'll second Tony's suggestion ...:yes:

To get the best theater experience you need to use surrounds speakers, but you can also use front speakers and phantom the rest, but with real surrounds you'll be :yay:.
