    I have been looking at the Elac Cinema systems and noticed their relatively new 0.5 budget system, which is available for around £240.

    Does anyone have any opinions on this set?

    I currently have an AE Aego 2.1 with and extra Aego centre, with Mission 70DS surrounds. I would need to stick with sat-sub systems due to wife-friendliness as it is only a fairly small living room. But there are a few issues that are making me think of switching systems.

    - tonal difference between front sat-sub and surrounds
    - overpowering sub-bass from the Aego, and as the sats are routed through the sub I can't adjust the sub level on my Marantz amp
    - disappointing mid-range when listening to music, although I suspect I won't be able to solve this without spending a lot more on a sat-sub system
    - would like a system where I can wire the speakers directly to the amp rather than through the sub

    I have also seen the Cinema 2 for under £300.

    For sound quality I would probably look towards the Cinema 2, but the bigger sub would not be so wife friendly
