    I was offered the following separates combination for 850 pounds:

    Denon DVD-1710
    Denon AVR 1705
    5 B&W VM1 Speakers
    B&W AS1 Sub

    What I need is great sound for movies and good sound with music.
    850 is the max of my budget. Is this a good choice, or I can get the same result by paying less?

    Overall the system seems like a good deal with good separate components. However, I haven’t checked prices for a while.

    Try posting in the General Hardware Chat forum for a better response.

    Most of that kit is pretty good and would work well together. My only concern is the AS1 subwoofer, which is to be quite frank, complete rubbish. I would swap this out for a REL Quake or small Velodyne subwoofer.
