    My budget is about £150 for speakers to go with a Denon 1705. Can anyone recommend a reasonably decent set for this price.

    Peter Tyson are offering the Tannoy fx5.1 set for approximately 170 quid plus delivery. This is the set I bought not that long ago and am very impressed. OK The sub is mentioned as a weak link although I have noticed no real problems with it and for the money they are very good. Not sure how they will mate with the Denon as I have a Sony receiver at the mo, although I have been looking at replacing this with the 1905 but am in a quandary myself due to wanting night mode.

    I think you can get hold of various yamaha speaker set for that sort of money (NSP-220's spring to mind)... not bad sats, woeful sub, but not bad considering the price.

    You could buy separately and get second hand speakers for that, 4 hifi speakers (either all matching or two different sets), a centre (preferably the same as the fronts) and a sub.

    Yeah, I've been watching these. Sounds exactly what I am looking for, but rather wary as:

    1. The guy has no history
    2. They will have to be shipped from Northern Irelend, therfore pay on collection is not an option.

    Will see how things progress.

    Be aware, the reserve price is larger than the £177.57 I bid (don't ask) and I'm not sure I can be bothered with more than that, as I'm only really after the 902s and would resell the other 902s, 905, and sub...
