    hello,
    i am new to home cinema and after looking through this and other sites i have decided on:a denon 2802-£490 the cinema 7 pack from richer £380 a rel 150 sub £439 from hifibitz and i am undecided on the dvd player either a denon1600 or a toshiba 510e or a pioneer737 all at £390 from leconcepts with connections thrown in+ free delivery and ten pounds off amp/dvd player when bought together.
    What i am looking for if this is an ok set up or in your opinion could i get better for a similar amount of money?any suggestions would be welcome also has anyone demo'd the new b&w vm1 speaker package similar price to the mission/rel150 and is the denon 3802 worth £150 more than the 2802? even if i dont think at the moment i will be able to use more than 5.1 speakers,finally prices are what i have been qouted competitive?
    thanks in advance
    jim

    Sounds like the makings of a good system to me.

    Is Denon 3802 worth the £150 - £200 over the 2802. Difficult to answer as it depends on whether you want DTS ES and the extra power.

    Looks as if you have done your homework, but i do recommend you demo this equipment, don't just go on the reviews........!
    As for the amp 2802 6x90watts and the 3802 7x110watts......... speaks for itself, to me worth paying that little bit extra........you may only use 5.1 at first but the 3802 has it all there in one box for when you are ready to expand to the other sound formats........!! good luck......bob

    The 2802 has DTS ES built in also, hence the 6x90w output. The 3802 adds the second channel of rear surround amplification, and that extra refinement to the sound.
