600 Quid for 5.1 package - Advice needed!



Need help :lease:

Well, im about to recieve my onkyo 605 in a day or two... and wanted to get a 5.1 to go with them. Got a budget of 600 quid max! Mainly want to use the onkyo for ps3 for games and also BD movies. My room is about 4x3 meters and really need to choose something fast but its not very easy :lesson:

Atm what ive read from the forums and google there are a few at that price range.(there may be many more, im kind of new regarding AV stuff)

Quad L-ite package
Kef 3005 (from superfi)
Mordaunt short Alumni (changed from genie after andy's reply)

I really am on a tight budget.. cant go over 600 pounds at all...

Any help is appreciated!

If you can get the full Quad Lite 5.1 package for £600 buy it....and let me know where you got it from!

Otherwise, I would seriously look at the AE Aego T's too.

The MS Alumni look very nice, but I've not heard them. I have the Premiere Plus system (and love it) so would hope the Alumni's are noticeably better. I've never been a fan of the Genies, and I reckon any of the other packages would offer far and away better performance (unless they've really messed up with the Alumni's)
