    After putting it off for years I've finally decided to bite the bullet and setup a home cinema system in my bedroom.
    Looking around the sheer number of choices available are overwhelming so I'd appreciate any comments/criticisms on items I've narrowed down for a shortlist.
    Budget would be an absolute max of £1k but if I can save a bit the better.

    My room is a fairly reasonable size, and while floorstanders and standmount speakers would be fine, I really like the look of the KEF Eggs, and all comments I've seen look to be very very positive. My only concern is are they really THAT impressive ? Can they fill a room and make it come to life ? I realise a demo is in order, but just how good are they ?

    The Denon 2802 I dont really know much about (just started looking), but for an ALL-IN package, I thought the one above looked pretty good (but what do I know !)
    Would there be a better alternative ? Are there any bottlenecks ?

    Would the KEF setup be significantly better than going the way of Mission ?

    Both ideally I'd like to demo, its just a completely coincidental opportunity has arisen re: the KEF's in that I'll be staying VERY close to Creative Audio next week and they can only be bought in person....

    Cheers

    PS:
    Will be demoing the KEF's on Friday. 1st demo session, woo !

    Anything i need to know ? Suggestions ?

    Just seen that the Denon AVR1803 has a deal making the KEF setup £888.

    Anyone have any experience with the 1803 vs 2802 ?

    Do a search. Those speakers are THE most discussed units on this forum. There are also plenty of threads on all 3 amps.
