    Hi all,

    I'm sure plenty others have asked this before but it's a bit of a minefield out there really! Basically looking for a decent home cinema system for £500 -£750 ish. Happy to spend more if it justifies it but hoping I can get a decent setup for the cash.

    So here is my wish list

    5.1 surround sound or even 7.1 (do the extra 2 speakers justify themselves?)

    Obviously top quality sound for both music and movies

    Blu ray player

    smallish/discreet satellite speakers.

    Reasonable amount of inputs

    The ability to stream music from computer

    Control via a smartphone app.

    If possible the ability to output to speakers in another room(s)

    Is pairing iPhones etc via Bluetooth a possibility? (Handy for a party when someone else wants to play music from their device)

    Any other things I should be looking for?

    I did initially consider the sonos playbar but by the time you add 2xplay 3's for rear speakers and a sub it all gets a bit pricey, and lets be honest..... It's ugly!

    Got a nice panny txl55wt50 to play my movies on and think the playbar would look terrible underneath!


    Thanks in advance guys and look forward to hearing your opinions/suggestions on any of the above!

    Rich

    Obviously if there's a decent system out there for less than £500 I'm ok with that too!! :)
