    Im thinking of getting a hi-fi system, but now considering a av system which can deliver music also. Will I still gain good quality music also?

    Any recomendations on an amp, within £200?

    Actually could go up to £280

    Amp for £200 get you a marantz PM4400 stereo amp or a nice starter 5.1 Marantz SR4300 from RS also a couple of Nice Yamaha units using proper front speakers will give you a very good stereo sound (better than a £200 mini system) Better than a £300 system you'llend up spending more but yo get so much more for your investment!

    SR4300 looks good.....preferably looking for a silver amp, so it can go with my dvd player.

    Also looking to buy some Mission speakers, any recommendations?

    Thanks

    Check out NAD T761, it was the top of the Range for NAD , now replaced by the T762, you can surely find this model at very good prices

    i personally don't rate those marantz 4300/5300 models- they sound a bit gutless and lacking in punch

    i'd try for a Yamaha RXV440 (or HTRR5640 (I think) in Silver)- much more dynamic sounding for movies and music.

    as long as you're only considering the Mission M3x series, then thats ok- the discontinued M7x series were way past their sell by date with flimsy build and scrappy sounding tweeters

    the m33 fronts are good for £200 and aim for the M3c2 centre at £150 which gives a good acoustic match. the m3ds rears round it off at £180, unless you want to make the most of the Yamaha's 6.1 by ading a M3c1 rear-centre (between two rears) at £90. not cheap, is it??
