Audio solution for apartment: iPod + TV

I live in an apartment and I'd like some sort of speaker/sound system to plug my iPod/iPhone into for playing music. Additionally, if possible, I'd like this solution to allow me to plug my TV into it and get better sound out of that. I know next to nothing about speakers or what I'd want (soundbar? Normal speakers?) so any general information would be welcome. I'm not looking for a multiple-speaker setup but just something that would enhance both my music and TV sound. Thanks for the help.

Which manufacturers make well-built home theater equipment at a reasonable price?

Over the past several years, I have been burned by poor quality in home electronics from various manufacturers. I have purchased pieces by Sony (home stereo), Panasonic (theatre-in-a-box) and RCA (various pieces of junk), and all have given out in one way or another far too quickly for my liking. In a renewed attempt to build a proper home theatre system (DVD/CD, receiver, speakers, etc), and recognizing that I haven't the money for really high-end stuff but will avoid anything cheap, I seek outside opinions as to which manufacturers are making products that are of reasonable quality, and reasonably priced. Your experiences, please.
