    Hi guys,
    I'm buying the tosh220e dvd and want an amp and speakers to go with it for around £250.

    The following are on my shortlist:
    Speakers
    eltax moviemax 119
    eltax starlight 99

    Amps
    pioneer vsxd510 149
    sony strde475 159
    sony strde585 175

    Any advice as to which is best, or any alternatives for around £250?

    I'll be using the system to play cds asa secondary hifi as well.

    Many Thanks

    Demo Mission M70i/M71i or the previous (non i) versions if you can find a discounter. Mission produce an M70 clone for Denon that I believe is a bit cheaper but pretty much identical. In my experience Eltax speakers are decidely average all through the range (but do look rather nice).

    Amps I can't comment on specifically, but Ebay/secondhand dealers may well be worth a look.
