    I'm in a similar situation myself.

    What did you think of the SL500?

    Have a look at the Yamaha AV50 pack from unbeatable, £170 for 5.1 speakers and an RXV350 (full size amp).

    When you have the hankering upgrade to the Canton CD1 speakers from Germany (huuuuuge thread about this, they're half the UK price in germany).

    Any more feedback on the SL500? I am planning to pair it with the Sony DVP-NS585P dvd player.

    I have shortlisted this config and need to know if this is wrong or I have made a mistake.

    I have another post where I have asked for opinions on this config as compared to a JBL DSC 1000 - http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=186419

    I found it cheaper at a few other stores and the best price and in stock was at QED-uk for around £225 (inc. delivery)
