    Second Hand 3802 from denon £300-400
    B*W 600 series £1200-1400 depending on what speakers you use from the range.
    Pioneer 454 £150

    Or variations on these, I would not go for the Bose.

    How about ...

    Marantz SR5300 or Yamaha AX630 - both around £350
    Toshiba SD520e - around £250 multiregion
    B&W 601s3 x 2 pairs for left right front and rear - £500
    B&W LCR60 centre - £200
    Velodyne CHT10 or B&W ASW600 or REL Quake or similar - around £350
    total - £1650

    Cables, etc ... a lot less than £350 :)

    I hope, in your thinking, that the Bose Acoustimass is the one item you weren't going to buy?

    Both Sounddog and THX's solutions would **** all over the Bose.

    As, basically, would pretty much anything.
    (Moderator: Please confine all 'discussion' of Bose to the Speakers and Subwoofers forum please :cool: )

    Had another thought, as it is your money I am spending:D what about the Arcam DV88+, progressive scan on both PAL/NTSC which I understand will show well on a projector, handles MP3. Can be upgraded later to DVD Audio.

    You could still get the Denon 3802 with some decent speakers and sub with whats left.
