    Looking for a budget but good AV Receiver and 5.1 Speaker set for my mancave project.

    Home theatre is a secondary concern and originally I didn't have a TV in the plans at all. But with scope creep I now have a 55" TV and had planned to use a soundbar. But the soundbar soon added a sub-woofer and I'm now thinking that I may as well go 5.1

    So what do I want

    An AV Amp. Black. Don't need oodles of power - it will only be driving small speakers. 5.1 is fine. Must have HDMI switching. 1080P is sufficient. A low height one would be great but not essential.

    5.1 Speakers (so including a sub). Reasonable quality. Black. Can be small (Just for movies and PC). Something like Keff eggs or Canton Movie system would be great.


    AV and Speakers as a package would be great but happy to consider them separately.

    Budget - £200 - £300 would be great but have some flexibility.


    Cheers,

    Hi, I have the following equipment which may be of interest:

    Denon 1909 AV Receiver
    Sony STR-DA2400ES AV Reveiver
    Denon 1610 AV receiver

    Definitive Technology Pro-cinema 80 5.1 package (4x Promonitor 80's, 1x Procenter 100, active subwoofer)

    Orb Audio 5.1 Package: 5x black orbs with table stands, orb audio "Super 8" active subwoofer. Essentially similar to the Mod1 package.

    Let me know if any of the above would be of interest.

    Either of the AV Receivers would more than do the job - ideally a low profile one would suite my cabinet better so I would be inclined to carry on looking some more.

    Never heard of either of those speakers so would have to do some research. The orbs looking intriguing - what set is it.

    And to give people idea on prices.

    For the AV Receiver, I could resort to buying the PIONEER VSXS310 from Richer Sounds for £230 so second hand I would be looking at less than that.

    Cheers,

    Nigel

    Just edited my first post with more info. Denon 1610, the orb audio set looks like the current "Mod1x" package but with the "Super 8" subwoofer.
