    Hey there, I'm looking to set up a receiver and speakers but am completely lost with how to proceed. I've had a read on here and taken some advice from friends, but I feel I need to look to the professionals.

    Description

    I have a 2D 42 inch LG 47LV3500 LED TV, a Mac mini, a PS3 and a TV box. I am looking to buy a receiver and speakers for movies, games and music. Budget is pretty open, but I'm hoping to come in at about 800 pounds for the lot.

    Requirements

    Receiver

    6 HDMI slots
    WiFi enabled
    Airplay

    Speakers

    Wireless would be great if it is financially viable and does not incur any loss of quality.

    Thoughts so far

    I've been recommended the Pioneer VSX-922 and the Onkyo TX-NR515 so far, and both seem fine, but I wonder if I'm missing a trick. As for speakers I have really no idea.

    Anyway, I hope one of you can help me, and I look forward to hearing from you.

    I'd suggest the following:

    Yamaha RXV673:
    Richer Sounds. Yamaha RXV673 AV Receiver. 4K Video Scaling. High Quality Amp. 4957812509732 | eBay

    Onkyo-Now.co.uk : : Specialists in Onkyo's award winning Hifi and home theatre systems

    This will not include inbuilt wifi, but wifi can be added via using Yamaha's wireless network adaptor connected to the receiver:
    YWA-10 - Wireless Accessories - Yamaha - UK and Ireland


    I'd suggest you forget about wireless speakers. This would be prohibitally expensive to achieve with your budget and audio quality is less than you'd get from conventionally wired speakers.

    I'd suggest this 5.1 package:
    Monitor Audio Vector 5.1 AV Speaker Package Black - Special Offers - Audiovisual Online - Home Cinema and Hifi Specialists


    You'll also need the wall mounts if wanting to mount them:
    Monitor Audio Wall Brackets For BX1 / Vector / Mass (Single) - Speaker Brackets - Audiovisual Online - Home Cinema and Hifi Specialists
