I am in the market for a home theater system but would like to be able to also tie in some outdoor speakers to it. What would be a good system less than $1000?
Most $1000 home theater systems aren't designed for adding on additional speakers. To do that you will need to buy selected components to make up your system.
EG: A/V receiver, dvd player, speakers, subwoofer.
Make sure that the receiver in that system has speaker A/B capability.
