I used to have a Sony HT-SS2300 which I had it connected to a HTPC and an XBOX 360 through HDMI.
The SS2300 would in turn connect to a video projector, also through HDMI, working not only as a HT, but as a A/V swith, which is very convenient.
Now I need to replicate the same setup:
* Custom made HTPC wiht HDMI output.
* XBOX 360 with HDMI output.
* Optoma GT700 projector.
So far, I have only been able to find the Onkyo HTX-22HDX Ultra-Compact HD Home Theater System, which is 2.1 upgradeable to 5.1, and the Sony HTSS380 which is 5.1. Both with 3 passthrough HDMI ports.
So my question is, which of the two should I get? The Sony HTSS380 or the Onkyo HTX-22HDX (with the option to make it 5.1 later)? Is there a better HTIB for about $250? Is there a better option for a custom made system? (only speakers/amplifier, as I do not need DVD/BluRay, and it can be 2.1 upgradeable to 5.1 later).
EDIT: If is really worth it, I can even try to extend to $300, but really pushing it.
