    I have a limited budget of £700 and would like a new hifi/Home cinema system.
    Am I fooling myself that I could get both. Instead of getting seperate amps and players I was thinking of getting a

    Amp: Yamaha 750SE
    DVD: Pioneer DV575A
    Speakers: Tannoy FX5.1

    This sounds alright in terms of the home cinema but I an not sure sonically.
    Can I play CDs through a DVD player and multi channel speakers and get a decent result?

    Do you have any alternative suggestions for kit, should I go for completely seperate systems?

    I would be grateful for any thoughts.

    Thanks.

    You can get a reasonable sound from a dvd player and an amp like the excellent ax750. It will not be as good as a dedicated cd player but until you get one you wouldnt notice.

    My only problem is with the use of satalite speakers. I feel that you will neve get the same musical responce with them than with floostanding or bookshelf speakers.

    AX750 £352 inc
    Pioneer dv575s multi region £97:90 (+postage?)
    Total £453 ish leaving approx £250 for speakers and all cabling.

    Tannoy fx5.1 £200
    Or the replacement EFX5.1 for £259:50 inc stands, wall brackets and 25m of speaker cable :smashin:
