    Hi Guys I'd really appreciate your help...

    There are just so many options when it comes to AMP's/Receivers and Speaker sets... and I have a few in mind but my budget is limited.

    So far I have considered the Yamaha VX357 and VX557 - and use my current "cheap" speakers but I would still need to buy a powered subwoofer.

    Then I thought about all in one systems and considered the Panasonic SCHT17 - and posted this message in the speakers forum http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=238406

    My main requirements are
    2 x optical inputs
    2 x component AV inputs
    Dolby Digital and DTS (not bothered about 6:1 or THX)
    Main use will be for DVD but also plan to input Xbox 5:1 audio

    My room is small 15'x15' so I don't need anything to wake the neighbourhood up.

    If anyone is aware of a package that is in my price range (or just over?) I'd appreciate if they could pop the manufacturer and model on this thread please.... I'll then do the digging around as to whether they would meet my requirements.

    Many thanks.
