Hello to all. I am on the verge of buying an A/V system but need some expert advice from some fellow forum members. Firstly, I'm looking for a system that will be great with movies, but can also cut the mustard with music. My previous system consisted of a Cyrus 7 amp, Cyrus 7 CDP and Monitor Audio Silver 9i speakers. As you might have guess, I quite like my 2 channel. However I know I will not get the same performance from an A/V set-up, but I'd like to think I could get close. So why don't I just get a 2 channel system I hear you say! Well, I also like my movies, and would like something that can do multi-channel music (SACD/DVD-A). In short, I am willing to take a hit on the 2 channel front for the extra that I can get from a similarly priced A/V set-up. With this in mind, I'm looking at the Denon 3910/3805 combo and the Arcam AVR300/DV79 pairing. I've heard that these are both knock-outs with 5.1 DVD's, but more importantly, also very good with 2 channel music. But which pair are the true Kings? Can any of you guys that have demmed please give me you thoughts and opinions. Also, I have a prediciment surrounding speakers. My initial thoughts were to hook up one of these combos to either a MS Genie or KEF Egg set-up, but I've been told that neither of these two packages would do the above mentioned products justice. And that if I was putting speakers of this calibre on the end, then I might as well opt for lesser Recievers and Players (like the Denon 2805 and Arcan AVR250) Is this the case, or would the Genies and Eggs do my prefered equipment justice? With this in mind I've though about looking at mixing the speakers. For example a system with: Amp=AVR300, DVD=DV79, Front speakers=QUAD 11L, Sub+rears+centre= Genies or Eggs Would this be a good idea? I'd imagine 2 channel music would benifit, but would this mismatch make movies suffer? All told my prefered budget is £2800. Obviously some of the combos mentioned above cost more, so there is some flexability, but £2800 needs to be kept in mind. Also, the money must be spent at 7Oaks (insurance issued check). They have a sale on at the mo, so a few hundred might be saved at the final bill. Are the Arcam pair worth £400 more than the Denon? Baring in mind that I could get the Quads as fronts with the saving? Any other suggestings appreciated. No floorstanding speakers aloud. I'll be demming on Saturday. Ta!
