Not much on there.

If you are set on keeping the turntable I would opt for Yamaha RS201

and Wharfedale – Diamond 10.1

I like Marantz receivers for sound quality for both music and movies. Combined with Audyssey room correction, you’ll get very solid sound quality. If you plan on doing 4K in the future, I’d look into 2015 models which should include HDCP 2.2 and HDMI 2.0a for HDR. If 4k isn’t a concern any time soon, then an older model would work fine – I’d look into refurbished here: http://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/category/avreceiver/home-audio/receivers-amps/home-theater-receivers/1.html?brand=Marantz

There are plenty of nice options in your price range for a 2.1 system.

Receiver + left/right speakers should run you around $600 if you go by the above list. Get a matching center down the line when you can afford it.

For subwoofer, here’s a nice option for both music and movies: http://www.rythmikaudio.com/LV12R.html

That would give you some wiggle room to either buy a center or surrounds and still stay under $1500.

> Also I don’t have an AV receiver. Is it worth getting one or can I get away with setting up a 5.1 system via the audio out on my TV?

I don’t know of any TV that can do that without a receiver.

>should I consider a home theater in a box system?

Absolutely Not.

Here’s how I think we should break down the $1,300 budget.

I think most here would agree with these.
AVR – $300-400. Denon on Accessories4less.com
Subwoofer – $200 Bic F12.

That leaves about $600 for speakers + cables and misc.

You have a few options, but I would consider saving money on surrounds in order to buy better fronts. Something like the $50/pair Miccas MB42 or something equivalent (but I think those are the favorites at that price)

Si with $500-something/3 = <$200 per front. I might consider these $300/pair Ascends though I’m not sure if they’ll sell just 1 center. These wharfedales – same issue with a center. Maybe even these JBLs.

I can see people disagreeing with the fronts – there are a ton of great options. But I think most would agree as to my relative pricing breakdown, give or take a few bucks.

I would go with the Diamond 10.1: http://www.amazon.com/Wharfedale-DIA101-CHR-Diamond-10-1-Cherry/dp/B0079XG53W

A review here: http://www.cnet.com/news/wharfedale-diamond-the-best-sounding-350-speaker-on-the-planet/

Yes, you would need a subwoofer for pretty much any bookshelf speakers. A bookshelf speaker + subwoofer would give you great bang for the buck.

Destruct0’s recommendations are solid. Since you wanted a lot of bass that’s also high quality and musical, I’d spend a little bit more for this subwoofer:

The Chanes are nice and dynamic and get loud. IMO, a slightly more refined speaker for the same price are the Wharfedale 10.1’s: http://www.amazon.com/Wharfedale-DIA101-CHR-Diamond-10-1-Cherry/dp/B0079XG53W You wouldn’t go wrong with either though.
