I have a neat little setup consisting of a 32 inch LCD, Apple TV 2nd gen., a Philips DVD player all hooked to a pair of these Bose speakers. http://www.bose.com/controller?url=...stems/computer_speakers/companion_5/index.jsp Apart from Netflix and Apple movies, I watch History HD, Nat Geo HD, CNN HD among others and really enjoy the AV experience. Like most, I like my picture nice, clean and rich and same with sound ( I am not an unreal bass porn seeker; Good balance of treble and nice, tight, solid, real bass would do.) Would adding a small A/V receiver enhance the sound and picture (especially on the appropriately encoded movies) in any way keeping in mind these speakers ? (If it helps, I go HDMI on all connections currently and will do so with the A/V receiver, should I buy it) Thanks!
