    Hi everyone

    I am going to purchase a Pioneer SC-LX57 AV receiver.

    Does anyone have any recommendations for a 5.1 speaker system to go with this amp? I am considering a Dali Zensor 1 5.1 setup but am looking for any other ideas about what to compare these against. My main listening will be to blu-ray films and I have a Panasonic DMP-BDT330EB as the source.

    Any suggestions on suitable speaker packages would be gratefully received.

    Thanks.

    I've listened with KEF ls50's, r300 and r100 in the front with r200 centre and r100 in the rear with a Rel r328 sub. The ls50's sounded great, as did the r300 which had more bass and a fuller sound. But I preferred the ls50. The R100's sounded fine in the front for movies but we're lacking with stereo music.

    When I have the money, I'll be getting the ls50's and r200 and moving my existing fronts to the rear. As asked before, what's your budget?
