    a good deal? I can get hold of the following;

    Denon AVR-3806
    Denon DVD-3910
    Monitor RS6 x2
    Monitor RS5 x4
    Monitor RSC centre speaker
    REL Quake 150E
    1.5 meter HDMI cable
    Denon link cable
    30 meters of good quality speaker cable (silver conductor, name unkown)

    For £3995, is this a good deal?

    it sounds good, however I would get some branded cable i.e. qed, van den hul, chord etc.

    also why do you need 4 rs5's? for your rears and surround backs? christ what size room have you got, you'd be better of with some rs1's for your surround backs or at most rs5's, with rsfx's as your rears.

    my two penneth. on the other hand, if you have got a massive room and rs5's are required for your rears and surround backs, then i would perhaps upgrade the sub to something like a strata 5 or a Q201 if you can get one.

    (RRP = recommended retail price, yes i know thats not supposed to exist but its just for ease of reading, UAP = Usual Available Price, ie sale price or discount on request)
    Denon AVR-3806 RRP £1,000 - UAP £950
    Denon DVD-3910 RRP £1,000 - UAP £900
    Monitor RS6 x2 RRP £0,600 - UAP £550
    Monitor RS5 x4 RRP £0,900 - UAP £800 (for all 4)
    Monitor RSC centre speaker RRP £0,250 - UAP £225
    REL Quake 150E RRP £0,495 - UAP £450

    total RRP £4245 - UAP £3875

    add £30 for a pretty HDMI cable, the Denonlink comes free in the 3910 box, then the 30 metres of silver cable, depends on what it is, if its Monitor Audio's own Pureflow then at £5 a metre thats £150 more.....and your talking either RRP of £4,425 or UAP of £4,055 total

    so basically if this kit is all brand new, boxed, full warranty (Denon 2years, MA 3 years, REL 5 years) from a shop, i'd be saying a very good deal would be £3,800......£3,995 is a nice deal, the equipment is certainly worth the money with the exception of the sub, i'd say i'll pay the £3,995 if they up it to the Strata 5......(assuming this is a shop your buying from)

    if they dont bite, still pay the extra to upgrade the sub, its a decent enough difference for the sake of another couple hundred quid, especially with power floorstanders......

    Personally i think you'd struggle to get the RS range discounted anywhere, maybe with a big purchase like that, dunno. But most would throw in cable as a discount, so counting that in and not a cash discount, it'd be more than £3875.

    IMO, considering how much kit your looking at buying in go, i'd say thats not much of a saving!

    You'd have saved way more than that if you bought it all in jan/feb at the sevenoaks sale... and arguably if you go into ssav, you could ask for similar discounts to what they had at sale price i'd think, seeing as the mark up obviously allows for it.

    QED Silver Anniversary Speaker Cable 30x£5.50 £165

    I could'nt find anyone stocking the Rel Q150E but as stated above you should have something better to match the RS's.
