    Anyone any experience of the Bose 3-2-1 or seen any reviews?

    Particularly looking for thoughts on how close it gets to 5.1 and also on Hi-Fi quality. :(

    Over-priced c**p IMO. I've heard about 3 differing Bose set-ups. As for Hi-Fi quality - forget it.

    I set one up for someone else, its ok but you would be far better off spending your money on something else.

    Thanks for the info - I guessed as much.

    What I'm really looking for is to consolidate as much as possible to cut down on the vast array of cables with as little compromise as possible on quality i.e. get the DVD to run it all. Not asking for much - eh! Don't have bottomless bank account either.

    Any recommendations?

    Is it worth waiting until I can have a few more options in adding DVD Recording to this combination?

    Kef Eggs, Ruark Vita, Energy Take 5.1- or any decent quality medium sized sat. speaker & subwoofer combo with a £200-£300 AV will sound much better than Bose crap, have better build quality, reliability, be louder (and sound better at louder volumes) and be more upgradeable.

    What about the Sony STRDB940 for sale in another thread - good amp for the money.

    What about something like the Sony DAVs range?

    They seem to get good reviews.

    How about the Linn Classik Movie ... probably not much more expensive than the Bose 3-2-1 system and much better. Or if thats too much the Teac systems are reportedly good for the money, or the Pioneer slim-line stuff.

    Or as Nathan said ... any decent 5.1 sub/sat system plus any £150 DVD with £300 AV reciever - add a Xantec IR system for around £50 and it can even be hidden in a cupboard.
