Which system should I buy Hi-fi 2.1 stereo music system or Htibs. :confused: My basic purpose is to listen good music and see movies also (Say 70 % music and 30 % watching movies. It should serve the both purposes.:confused:

1. What is the difference other than speakers ?
2. What I loose if I buy either of them compared to each other ?
3. As I understand Htibs is basicay for movies (?). Does that mean that it is
not good or so good for listening music compared to Hi fi stereo systems ?

I had posted this question earlier but did not get the answer.

It depends on... your usage (music versus movies), your budget (current and future)...

1. What is the difference other than speakers ?
A stereo amp is preferred (over an AVR) in a pure stereo setup, this is recommended if you are musically inclined and your CDs/songs outnumber your DVD/BDs/films by many times :lol:

2. What I loose if I buy either of them compared to each other ?
If you buy an AVR, you can always have a decent 2.0 or 2.1 setup along with the 5.1 movie setup, whereas you have to live with a 2.0/2.1 if you buy a stereo amp.

3. As I understand Htibs is basicay for movies (?). Does that mean that it is not good or so good for listening music compared to Hi fi stereo systems ?
There are AVRs with decent music/stereo performance which will cater to both movies and music as well...

budget being constant you'll have better SQ from a 2.1 rather than from a surround sound. quality over quantity. youre spreading your budget over 5 speakers instead of 2. similarly with the amp - it'll be a 5.1 or a 7.1 instead of a 2.1. esp if your budget isnt too high i would suggest a 2.1 or even a good 2.0
