No way!Sony is not that stupid to only offer hdmi.
About the Bose...
Bose offers simple systems with decent sound.Women love 'em!Most people think
they're great just like all Sony products.I feel that they are far over rated!$$$
Typically integrated systems with small satellite speakers.
But, if you don't mind larger wooden speakers,
then buy some Polk Audio speakers.
For $3000 you could get a Mid level speaker package
and a $500-$700 Yamaha reciever.Most people don't not need
a $1000 reciever.$5-700 will get a good quality reciever with
out paying for overpriced technologies.Now if you are rich and want the best
or are a true enthusiast, then go right ahead ans spend the money.
HTB's btw are always limited in connections and have crappy plastic speakers
in them!Thats why they suck.For games they're good/ok but they
don't offer the full range sound that a good wooden speaker can output!
