Is this worth picking up? The price is really nice IMO.

I had one of the HTIB for a few years. I really enjoyed it, got it refurbed for less than $200.00 and that was an amazing price. Then upgraded 3 years ago. Which system are you looking at getting?

This one, I currently have a sound bar, hardly ever use it just because the dialogue is so low, it's annoying lol

That is definitely going to be a step up from a sound bar.

I think so, I used a similar HTIB (but 7.1, which was going for about $400) for about 3 years before upgrading and I was very satisfied. I actually still use it but not as my main sound system anymore.

It's a good system for a nice price. The only real con's are in the fact that it is harder to upgrade individual components if something goes bad or you want a nicer sub or speakers. But if you just want a good system that isn't too hard on your wallet and doesn't require lots of research matching components, then this is a good way to go.

Yeah the only thing I see could limit you if you plan to slowly upgrade would be that the receiver does not have a pre-amp for the subwoofer which would allow to use a different sub. However, you could upgrade all the other speakers, but when you want to upgrade the subwoofer you would need to buy a new receiver.
