So I'm looking for an audio system for our apartment's living room to buy on black friday. I've been looking into some sony shelf systems like this one : http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?storeId=10151&catalogId=10551&langId=-1&productId=8198552921665769556

which I am hoping I can get for about $125 on black friday.

I realize I am sacrificing a bit of quality going with the cheaper shelf system instead of going with a 2.1 or 5.1 reciever and speakers, or a home theater in a box.

This will mainly be used for playing music during parties and also use with our xbox/ps3/tv.

Would I be better off spending $400 or so for a home theater system or will the cheaper shelf system fit my needs?

Any suggestions on other good shelf systems or home audio systems?

Quality wise, that should be fine.

Looks a little vulgar though.

I'm also thinking about getting a stereo reciever and building my own 2.1 system.
