Now that I have a 32″ LCD HDTV, Xbox 360, upconverting DVD player and DVR, I needed a way to connect all these devices to my television.
To accomplish this, as well as provide surround-sound to go along with my video, I purchased a Yamaha YHT-370.
I’m not an audiophile, so I wasn’t looking for an expensive solution. I also wanted to avoid picking out a large number of individual components, which lead me to a HTIB (Home Theater in a Box). The sound from the YHT-370 fills my room while providing three component inputs so that I can easily switch between them.
The unit does not have HDMI support, which is in-line with what is a mid-level HTIB system, but even as an entry-level unit it’s a good choice for me as I can always upgrade individual components later, such as the unpowered subwoofer that still provides plenty of bass.
