    I have approx. £400 to spend in the Jan sales. I want a dd5.1/dts amp and speaker set-up (5 + sub). So far I have looked at the Sony HTK 315 set-up with the stde545 amp and intro pascal speakers. Another option is a set-up from Hi-Spek of a Yamaha rxv596RDS amp and yamaha nsp300 speakers for £399.

    Can anyone advise on the best option. It is intended for a living room so power output is not the first priority.

    From a second hand source I heard the Yamaha performs very well and is great value for money.

    The Sony Pascal's have recived a bit of a battering lately in this forum, but I cant comment personally cos Ive never heard them. I suggest you search for them on this forum & hear what the members have said in the past.

    I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit.....it's the only way to be sure.

    Go with the Yamaha setup... The Sony's are terrible! As What Hifi Put it "If You Care About Sound Quality - Don't Get These Speakers" and gave it 1 Star out of five.

    The Yamamha, on the other hand is an award winning amp, I have the 795a which I managed to get for £299 and I think its a brilliant amp!

    Can't comment on the speakers, but they are bound to be better than the Sonys!

    Regards
