    Really silly newbie question….

    I’m on the verge of buying an all in one home cinema set-up, as space is very restricted. After reading countless reviews, forums I have decided to go down the Denon 500SD route.
    The only snag with this is the size of the speakers, again due to space, the speakers will be mounting in the top four corners of the room (not ideal I know) what do you guys/gals think of swapping the speakers with something like the Canton Movie 6 or 10 ???
    Am I just being really naïve in thinking a swap of speakers will not make a huge difference in sound quality.

    Cheers,

    Unless you're space is very restricted I'm sure you could stick with the speakers that come with the Denon?

    They are not particularly large (and look great); I don't know how much smaller the Cantons are but surely not much?

    I have the Denon 500SD and it's a great all-in-one so go for it .....!

    The Canton Movie 6 CX is on the AV forums for £165 and the satellites are much smaller than the Denon's, especially if you are going to mount them up and out of the way. they measure about 9cm x 9cm x 9cm and will out perform any speakers that come with a one box solution.

    The sub is also active. i'm not sure if the denon one is ?

    regards

    Sub is not active on the Denon, not got the sizes of the speakers to hand but 9cm x 9cm x 9cm does sound pretty small so if space is v tight then the difference would be noticeable.

    Denons are 15*22*7. Would you not need an additional amp to use the active sub?

    Thanks guys,

    Correct me if i am wrong, the Denon has a Sub pre-out. Can this then be connected to any active sub as the amp is built in?

    I think so and if you go active with the sub you can use the sub speaker terminal and get 6.1 :smashin:

    If you are not using the Denon speakers buy the Denon 550 without speakers!! It will give you a seperate DVD player and Amp with all the connections you could ask for!!
