    I'm looking to put in a 5.1 speaker setup, but am completely confused about what to go for. i'm not impressed by the satellite jobs and want something a bit more lively, i've got a budget of 4-500 for the lot, can anyone give me a recommendation ?

    thanks in advance

    Mission Cinema 7 pack, exceptional 5 speaker package usually £800 now being sold at Richer Sounds for £400. If I had £400 I'd be down there in a flash, and back home quite slowly as I don't have a car and I reckon the boxes would be kind of heavy....

    Anyways, all you'd need then is the sub.

    If you borrowed a supermarket trolley it might make life easier for you.

    I purchased these over a year ago for £350 and they are pretty amazing. I don't know what satelite speakers you've heard and have been unimpressed with - but give these a shot and let me know what you think.

    Quite sneakily off to Tescos on Wednesday (will be too drunk by the end of tonight to do anything tomorrow), and will nab myself a trolley!

    If I get caught I'm pointing them your way Ian!

    The Mission Cinema7 at 400 is definetely a bargain but listen to it first if it suits you - no point in buying just because it's cheap. I recommend it though, too.
    Alternatively check out Tannoy M(x) series, good budget speakers with some reasonable bass to bridge the gap until you get a subwoofer. There are several models available and with your budget you should be able to get a nice setup if the Mission's don't suit you.
