I am building a new home and my contractor suggested a young man to help with surround system. He immediately recommended an NXG system based on good sound at great price though price, he is finding out, is not the ultimate driving factor. He also recommended Atlantic Technology as a 2nd option if I could spend more, and I can. After joining your site, I now know I should have been shopping for months before having to make this decision. I live in a small town and do not have many options for listening to quality speakers. I have 2 questions. How to decide quickly on a surround system in the $2-3K range AND will this surround sound 5.1 system satisfy my greater desire for listening to music or should I purchase a separate 2 speaker system for my music enjoyment. Help, and Thanks for any insight you can offer!
