    There have been a number of threads in the last 2 months about the all-in-ones. I suggest you take a look back.

    If you want some suggestions, i also suggest you state your budget and what you are going to connect up to it.

    Yes, more information would be helpful about what you are trying to achieve:

    Minimise budget? Best sound? Tidy up the area around your telly? Combine it with your hifi? Best movie watching potential? Combination of some of the above?

    For starters, how about:

    Kenwood KRFV5050 £154.00
    Mission 77 Series package £399.00

    The Mission package doesn't include a sub. You could use the spare 50 to 150 quid you've got left to get a sub, but I wouldn't. Save up for a decent one.

    (prices from www.richersounds.com)

    I've got a recomendation - don't bother. I made the mistake of buy a £200 sub. It sounded muddy and confused.

    I've now got a M&K VX-100 - £850 but worth every penny.

    Actually, I've still got my old sub. If you live in the Manchester area, you can make me an offer ;-)

    Try keeping an eye out at ebay - if you know what you are looking for, you can get some real bargains! They occasionally have a REL or two! You could also research some older speaker models, buying second hand can get you really decent stuff but at a fraction of the price... but be careful where and who you buy from!

    Eltax Liberty speakers are a little discussed gem. Great budget speakers. The Av package they have in Richer Sounds (know what you want when you you go in and NEVER ask their advice) is bloody brilliant for the money and would go great with the Kenwood in my opinion.

    Don't bother with a sub unless it commands at least £500 new.
