Hi everyone, I'm not much of an audiophile but my brother-in-law is a sound engineer and put me onto this excellent website to see if I can get some advice. I've been trawling through the various threads, but I guess my problem is a fairly basic one & my budget is not that big either, so I haven't found any answers yet. My problem is this: I have NO hi-fi or home cinema at the moment, and only a budget of around £250. I want a system for listening to CDs, but also for movies (I'm not bothered about the full 5.1 surround sound). What I do have is a DVD player (Toshiba SD-330), and I was thinking that rather than buying a micro hi-fi with a CD player, why not make use of the DVD player to play CDs instead? The room it's in is not huge, and I don't want loads of satellite speakers (which seems to rule out most home cinema packages!). So should I be looking at getting separates (amp & speakers only) or is there another solution out there? Any advice is appreciated!
