    I needs some help from you guys, could any of you tell me if this package is a good deal from this site. The Arcam AVR300 receiver + Mission e82 5.1 speaker package + Arcam DV-79 DVD player. Have any of you listen to this speaker system before?. I have just purchase my Pioneer 43xde Plasma screen , so now i'm looking for a good 5.1 sound system for both music and DVD's .

    http://www.creative-audio.co.uk/HCS_ARC300_e82.htm

    Is this a good price for this package

    Arcam AVR300 receiver + Mission e82 5.1 = £ £3890.00
    Arcam DV-79 DVD player = £ 999.00



    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    It does seem like a very good deal, considering the list prices of both items! I’ve only heard the elegante at a hifi show and seemed quite impressive and they’ve got a lovely finish in a number of different colours.

    If you are interested in music as well as movies then you probably couldn’t get any better than the Arcam’s.

    All in all a great system for the money :smashin:

    We love the Arcam amps with the e82 system - obviously the AV8/P7 combo is tremendous, but the AVR300 is superbly musical too, and LURVE the DV79 with it.

    Go for it, you should be happy for a long time with this combination.

    This looks like a good deal, however before you buy.... with the a budget of £3890.00 for the Arcam AVR300 receiver + Mission e82 5.1, I would listen to the Quad Speaker Package with the Arcam AVR300. I have heard it, and it beats any surround speaker package I've heard for both music and movies and it look like a speaker package 3 x the price.

    Arcam AVR300 = £1,300
    Quad Speaker Package = £1,900
    Amp /speaker package price = £3,200 giving you a saving of £690.00 + (your spending a lot of money, negotiate a deal with the dealer for further discounts or cables) :thumbsup:

    I used to be a Mission fan before I heard the Quad 22L. Quad offers more clarity, transparency and a large sound stage, but it's all down to what you like. Dont buy off specs and recommendations, listen to the total system(s).

    The Quad package is not only excellent is listen to, it really looks the business and it won what hifi "Full size surround speakers - Product of the Year" in 2004.
    See: http://www.iaguk.com/quad/whathifi_lsystaward.gif

    The Quad speaker package and the individually reviewed speakers have won quality awards in 2004.

    The sub in this package is getting great reviews in this forum in the subwoofer section.

    re: the Arcam DV-79 excellent choice.

    Hope this helps.
