For the price you cant really go wrong.
Well, i rather pay a bit more than buy something and then regret it.
It really depends what you're looking for from a home cinema kit. I've never heard them so can't comment, but superfi are doing a cracking deal on some Wharfedale 8 series. Click here
The bass cones on that movie maxx system look a bit extreme, for that price, I doubt there will be much control, and the lower frequencies will muddy everything.
They probably won't be too bad for the money, but Eltax's lower cost speakers aren't too hot. I remember their first gen Eltax Symphony 6, that was a lovely speaker, but the later ones just didn't have the same quality. Just my opinion, and I know there are many people who love Eltax speakers, but, for that price, you are better off getting good quality standmounts.
I am looking for a system which would provide a decent home cinema and a good music quality(in a price bracket £200-speakers, £200-amp).
Have you tested those Wharfedale 8 series? I had two cheap Wharfedale speakers , and one of them broke after 1 year.
Can you recommend anything at that price bracket(either floorstanders or micro)?
Have you considered importing some canton cd1s from Germany?
Yes. But i read somewhere they are only 80 wat max. And i am planning to get 100w rms amp.
That shouldn't be an issue though, if you try and drive it too high you'll damage your speakers anyway.
To be honest, bar the cantons you'll find it difficult to find something for £200 that's good for music as well as movies.
