New System: Surround Speaker/Sub Sudjestion



Hi all,

I had a AV setup a while ago, a budjet package from Richer Sounds. I loved it! but it had to go, because i wanted a car (18yo at the time). i hav a 28" 4:3 CRT TV, A sherwood RD6106 5.1 DD DTS reciever, and a Cyberhome DVD player with a Gale 5 speaker package, and i later purchased an eltax sub (cant remember all the model numbers)... the system sounded good and was amazing value at under £350.

Back to the current day..

Iv just ordered a Pioneer VSX-915 7.1 DD EX, DTSES 96/24 etc, AV reciever, a Pioneer DVR530H DVD/HDD Recorder, a set of Pioneer S-H310V-QL Loudspeakers for the front just to get me started. i allready have a BenQ PE5120 Projector that i am very pleased with! (200" Screen (16:9) :D)

here are my cables just in case,

-The Audioquest OptiLink-A Cable 1M
-The Audioquest Type 2 Speaker Cable
-QED Airloc Banana Plug + Airloc Termination
-The QED QUNEX 2 Interconnect
-The QED QUNEX P75 Coaxial Interconnect

and a few others like S-VHS and SCART,

Err, the question is, what surround speakers would go well with the fronts that i already have, i also need a sub, im trying to do an all Pioneer setup wherever i can.

im thinking about the following:

Pioneer S-VLF5 Home Cinema Speaker Package
Pioneer S-VLF3 Home Cinema Speaker Package

now the difference in price between the 2 packages is about £70,
i like the look of the wood finish, but i only payed £140 for my main speakers, is this package (£440) going to be "too good" for the Pioneer S-H310V-QL's??

and if anyone has any comments on the system or anything they think would go better, or just comments basically,

BTW i dont have any of the AV equipment yet, just the projector, still wating for stock, apparantly VSX-915's are in high demand... anyone know how this is going to sound in comparison to my old system..

thanks again,



okay, so no one has anything to say... cumon peeps, giv me some replys!, also i must have been ****** when i measured my screen, its actually 100" not 200"... but its still pretty large... hehe
