    Some advice from you guys would be greatly appreciated.

    I was up untill a week ago (sent it back due to supplier being usless) going to purchase a Sony Dav ZF700 all in one home cinema kit. This is the one with wirless rear speakers. Its little brother (Dav ZF500) scored highly in a magazine reveiw last month and to be honest looked really good.
    Due to loads of problems with the supplier (Pixmania) i returned the goods to them.
    I was in Kingston today and popped into the Sevenoaks shop to ask his opinion. After a long discussion he suggested that i try the Acoustic Energy Aego P5 Mk2 speaker package. I know this is not an all in one system which is what i was originally looking for, but he was making sense in what he was telling me (i think lol).
    He suggested get the speaker system then upgrade when you can existing DVD (Cyberhome cheapo special, dont laugh), then eventaully TV.

    It all sounded great that this way i could upgrade as and when i could afford and to be honest i am sure this way is better than the all in one systems.

    So the question is
    Acoustic Energy Aego P5 Mk2 speaker package is it any good? It looks good, its wired which i initailly wanted to avoid but could live with. I have heard reports of hissing from some of the systems and basicaly wanted some advice/reviews from people who own one or really just know what they are on about.

    Or should i just order the the Sony Dav ZF500 all in one sysyem and be done with it. The reason for changing my mind about the wireless version is that it apparently need line of sight for rears to work. Mine would not have this.

    Decisions

    Cheers

    i havnt Acoustic Energy Aego P5 Mk2 speakers but a freind of mine has a set of Acoutic Speakers and i think they are brilliant for the money. Also i would go for seperates any day of the week rather than an all in one Sony, i had a Sony all in one home cinema DVD package and in all honesty i hated it, for movies i thought it was barley accpetable and it was awful for music full stop. the guy in the shop gave you sound advice about being able to uprgade as you go along, which i think is really important,

    best of luck mate
