    Help!
    looking to purchase surround sound system for the first time.
    so much info it gets confusing.
    initial thoughts are as follows
    marantz sr5400 AMP
    tannoy fx 5.1 speakers
    cambridge azure 540D DVD

    thoughts and opinions would be much appreciated as my
    knowledge is limited ( this may already be obvious ) !

    in anticipation

    :hiya: Dondotcam and welcome to the forums

    The choices are quite a good base for a H/C setup. :thumbsup:

    I would suggest also look at the Pioneer dv575 as it has good reviews on here and can play anything you can throw at it:) and its cheaper than the Azur.

    Ive also found the Tannoys for £159 + and extra £30 if you want the stands + postage

    I dont know how much your looking to pay for the 5400 (cant find a price on RS website) The cheapest I can find it else where is £199 from

    I have bought from them and can highly recommend buying from them:D
    If you can stretch to the upgraded OSE model its only £269:smashin:

    Dont forget to keep some budget for some better interconnects. Good budget coax (for digital sound to the amp from the dvd player) is the Profigold PDG481

    Also a good analogue interconnect for listening to cd's from the dvd player. Its short (0.5m) so good if they are going to be close together. Good cable and a bargain from ebay (i have a couple from the guy.:smashin: )
