    It looks good, it's affordable, but does it deliver?
    I'm about to buy my first digital/dts system, and found out that it's quite easy to pick receiver and DVD.
    But finding good speakers for a decent sum, that's harder.

    I will place the system in my livingroom, approximately 20 squaremeters, and I want to be able to watch movies and listen to music with the same system...

    My current shortlist:
    * Eltax cinemaxx 5 pack (Impossible to find a review, doh!)
    * Eltax evolution 5.2 found a couple high rating reviews at eltax.com
    * JBL SCS 178

    The problem is that I can't find a dealer (stockholm, sweden) who has a demo system with the eltax speakers, so I will have to rely on reviews... I'm going to listen to the JBL system however.

    Opinions on my shortlist, are gratefully received.

    Have you listened to the whole package (Cinemaxx)?

    The price for the cinemaxx 5 pack is around £360. But if that's the price for good rears and lousy fronts/center I rather go else where.

    Thanks a lot,

    I'll think I'll take yours and everybody else in this forums advise, and stay away from Eltax. I have a new short list posted now...

    Thanks.
