I'm new to this, and I'm just curious. Basically, what's the best buy out there, not the best set, just the best bang for the buck, and also, what's the cheapest, even if it's bad.

The cheapest sets out there are around a hundred,but you don't want
those.The Onkyo sets for around four hundred would be the best intro htib.

I got a set of 5 celestions from Best Buy for $149, and there was a huge thread on it, although I believe it may have been clearance since I don't see them on their site anymore.

You did ask about the cheapest set, right.
Well Wal-Mart sells a set for about $50 bucks or $70 with an integrated DVD player.

The receivers is alright, DD and Prologic, but no DTS, enough inputs for my taste.
The speakers weren't that great, but replace those with a nicer set and you're good for under $100 bucks.
