Wow 7 grand!? Bose is great but many say it's over rated. I'd go with a KEF surround sound system. My dad has KEF loudspeakers and they're amazing.

Bose sucks.

And $7k is a small budget for HT if you know what's out there. lol

www.audiogon.com has a lot of nice stuff on it.

There are so many possibilities it's hard to recommend anything. I specialize in car audio so I don't really know all the home audio brands.

Buddy of mine ran his own high end home audio business for a while. It was unreal what rich people would pay for it. He went all over the country putting the systems in, crazy. Italian stuff I think.

lmao @ 700xxmaniac's setup, Interesting.

Trxtas, McIntosh w/ Polk Audio speakers would be in that price range.

I have a Harmon-Kardon with Polk speakers and love it, the sound is great. Bose is ok! too $$$ for the sound they produce. 7 grand is plenty for a real good sound system unless you have an entertainment (theater) room then you would need to spend a tab more

He lives in Australia, so things may be a little higher than they are here in the states. I just have a cheap pioneer 5.1 system with wireless rear speakers and it sounds fine to me.

I spent about $3500-4000 for my set up but I got a 46 inch TV. Pioneer Sterio, LG Blue Ray. Pioneer Sub woofer, Polk and sony speakers.

Watch your watts. Too much and you will never be able to use all of it. Too Little and it won't be enough. Go 300 Watts or more. My living room is a 10x20. 1000 watts way to much for inside a house. IMO.

What you really need to watch for towards wattage, is what kind of wattage it is, if I'm not wrong most of the real good equipment uses a DC wattage, think that's how they call it. Know that my Harmon Kardon uses that and basically you use less power for more wattage, something like that. Sorry! This is what my Receiver produces;
100 watts minimum continuous power per channel, 8
ohm loads, 2 channels driven from 20 Hz to 20 kHz​
with a maximum total harmonic distortion of 0.08 %

My room is about 12 X 20 and haven't gone lower than 25 and it's loud enough for me.

I believe your talking about the class rating of an amp. Class D is the most efficient but sound quality suffers. They usually run around 85-95% efficient. Class A amps are the least efficient but have the best sound quality. They usually run between 30-45% efficient. Between these two classes there are B and C classes and follow suit with efficiency/sound quality. Class A amps are the most expensive
