Iv just been looking at this,

what would i need to get this up and running, im guessing some front speakers left, right and centre and left right surround at about 150W 6 ohm, and then i can add any sub via the sub pre out, is all that right? Thanx

Nice amp that :thumbsup:

You will need the five speakers that you listed and a subwoofer whilst not strictly necessary with full range speakers is highly desirable anyway.

If your budget of £1,500 includes the amplifier you won't be leaving very much for speakers if you buy that one.

My allocation of the funds would be more along the lines of £500 for the amp and £1,000 for the speakers which I think would result in a better balance.

Any recommendations on speakers, guess i will just have to save up a bit longer then :). That amp has all the connections i want and will need. I just need to find the right speakers for it and a nice sub as i like very heavy bass.

Just been looking through other threads and found these for a similar amp,

Any good? I had no idea it was so hard finding the right setup, no wonder i was at first looking for a package.
