OK I've realised that the setup I'm using is a bit pants due to the poor speakers supplied with and fitted in my Pana TX32PS5 Dolby Tv. My plan of action is get the Pioneer VSXC301 AV to power the speakers and feed the tv from Pace NTL box and Pana DMRE50 DVD. I have a sub-woofer (Wharfedale Moviestar 60) so was just looking to get a speaker set without a sub. Space is a little restricted so smaller is preferred if better than the Pioneers. I know this is a budget system compared with the ones some of you are running but the wife does not appreciate stereo over mono. She would rather listen to a portable radio than turn on the hi-fi! She knows I'm looking at speakers but doesn't know of the AV receiver yet and will hate the idea of another remote. Comments - helpful or not?
