The build quality of the Klipsch looks better than the Sony, but it doesnt have a receiver like you pointed out. Which means you won't even get bog standard Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS 5.1 (let alone the HD variants). Yes it should be compatible as most bluray Players and TVs have 3.5mm and RCA inputs, but like I said lack of receiver might bring upon another issue of being stuck with with stereo on a 5.1 system. Atleast with the Sony you can upmix to Dolby Prologic IIx 5.1 on sources which are non Dolby 5.1 because of it's receiver.
What is the upper limit of your budget again?
