Hi all, Can anyone please help me. I am after some AV gear, but I am having problems getting demos in shops of anything I suggest, as salesmen seem to drive me into looking at something else, (possibly because they can't be bothered hooking up the gear). So I thought it would make it easier if I had a couple of systems written down to show them I'm serious and see if things improve. Also I'm seriously short of time at weekends and don't hold out hope of being able to demo some/all of the gear. I would be grateful if someone could suggest some gear that would be certain to match well and give me some pretty good sound/pictures, even if I couldn't audition it (I'm sure it would be miles better than most all-in-one systems). At the very least, I could use this shortlist and start doing some searches on this forum (to get some real user feedback) to help me decide better. My requirements are: 5.1 speakers like the Kef eggs (i.e. small & wife friendly). Main use will be home cinema, but say 10% music too. I have seen these at the £650 mark and that is roughly the most I want to pay for these or alternatives. 5.1 (or more) AV receiver. Would like to match with speakers and also prefer something best for movies rather than music. Budget c. £350. A multi-region progressive scan DVD player - not sure what I need to spend here, is £150-£200? I would also possibly consider a HDD/DVD recorder. I would be connecting these to a plasma (prob. Panasonic TH-42PW6), Sky (poss. Sky+ in near future). Not to concerned about hooking up a VHS, but would be nice to have the option too. Thanks in advance.
