    The DVD is good, the Amp bad and the speakers ugly ... think thats the right order.

    I think the dvd player is fine, the amp I cannot say.
    But the speakers I am not so sure about.
    I think different speakers would give much better results.

    Are you only interested in a silm system or will you consider a larger amp for example ?

    Regards

    Hi

    Just back from my mates where I was helping to install the VSX-C100 (I assume you mean this model) / DV454 / Infinity Alpha HSC 5.1 package.

    Amp - surprisingly good sound - challenged connectivity wise but as he only has DVD/Sky+ he is happy. Just check in case you may need more inputs in future.

    DVD - Played Blade II and Terminator 2 Region 1 into Philips 28 flat widescreen RGB Scart - superb for the price.

    CD playback - pretty good, much better than his Sony midi system.

    Infinity speaker package - not bad, prefer equivalent missions but these were 60% off and all he wanted to spend.

    SV40 speakers - no idea. Would check out some alternatives if I were you.

    Consider ex-dem/used. Maybe save up and add the speakers in stages, buy fronts, then rears, then centre and finally a sub.

    HTH

    Gus
