    Hello,

    I think the time has finally come to buy my own setup. For the last few years I’ve been using the Videologic Digitheatre – which has been perfectly adequate, but over the last few months I’ve been feeling an urge to get something new. As this will be my first setup, I don’t especially want to spend huge amounts of money on the components, so after a little bit of research I’ve narrowed it down to this for the moment.

    Fronts: Kef Coda 70 Maple http://www.kef.com/products/coda/coda70.html
    ~£150

    Centre: Kef Coda 80 Maple http://www.kef.com/products/coda/coda80.html
    ~£110

    Receiver: Sony STR-DB790 http://products.sony.co.uk/productdetail.asp?id=__2438&search=790
    ~£230

    Would I be going far wrong with the above choices? Anyones input would be great, I'd also like to still use my existing sub and rear speakers - would that cause any problems?

    And also, what cables would you recommend to use?

    Cheers,
    aMb

    The upper bounds for my budget are around the prices I've quoted for the components.

    You say I can do better than the Sony - looking at a review in What Hi-Fi it seems to have done quite well for itself? Is there anything better for a low budget amp?

    Thanks
