I recently purchased a 32" LCD Vizio for my bedroom to use with my PS3 and I think it's finally time to upgrade from the tv speakers to some surround sound. The problem is I really don't know what to get. I'm looking for something relaitvely inexpensive (under $400 preferably) and nothing too big. I just want my blu-ray movies to sound better really. One of my friends said I should look into maybe getting a sound bar but idk if that will be better or worse than getting seperate speakers. Any suggestions on what I should get? I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to home theater audio..

Soundbars never give proper surround sound

Do you already have an amplifier?

Also, what is the model of the television? What is your source (cable, DVD, Blu-ray, etc.)? Happy gaming, Boz

If there's no amp, I'd spend a little extra--around $550. Onkyo A-5VL Cambridge Audio S30
