    Hey
    So I'm going back to uni for my 2nd year. I would really like to get some nice floorstanding speackers but my Mum and Dad just wouldn't be happy as they would take up to much room in the car.

    So I've been looking around and have found these

    Limit HC602 Linkie for spec

    Has anyone ever used them or know anything about them. I'm on a really tight budget but RS have them on Clearance for £99. (Probally shouldnt have told you that if there any good)

    So now I need a av reciever to run them off

    Like the looks of the Sony STRDE495 but it only seems to have 2 inputs.
    My girlfriends Dad has the Pioneer VSXC301 and I really like it but its weather or not thats a good match for the speakers.

    If anyone else can offer some advice or some other products to look at I would be must greatful.
    Budget for the whole thing £250 at the very max.

    Thanks alot

    Do you have dvd player with a buit in DD decoder? If you do try these:

    The limits look seriously funky and mysteriously like the Kef eggs :D
    An alternative is:

    A few poeple on here have them as second room surround systems.

    The Yamaha will beat the Sony back into the dark ages where it belongs. Will max out your budget though. The option is to email superfi and try to get them to price beat it and then get the speakers at the same time with free postage. I have bought from them and can recommend them hapily:D

    hi
    that yamaha does look good but it would push my budget.

    I currently have some Sony speakers that are 100watts and 8 ohms and and some that are 90watts and 4ohms. I also have some surround speakers which are 16ohms and 50watts.

    If I was to get the yamaha RX-V350 could I run either both or one set of these until Christmas when I could get some new speakers?

    the yamaha specs say
    DIN Standard Power (4 ohms, 1 kHz, 0.7% THD)
    Minimum RMS Output Power (8 ohms, 20 Hz–20 kHz, 0.06% THD)

    which confuses me as I dont know what I need to look for.

    Thanks alot for your help

    I would say that you could easily run all your speakers in some way except maybe the 16ohms speakers. You would have to read the manual to see if the Yamaha will drive them without blowing them up. Usually amps specify 4-8ohms only. You will also need to use something as a centre speaker or use the phantom mode.
