The in-laws are changing their old stereo system and they have been to Argos to look at the micro systems at about £99 So..... I have pursuaded them to spend a maximum of £300 and I will sort them out with a CD Player and a seperate stereo reciever. With a pair of bookshelf speakers, it will look and sound a lot better than Argos' efforts. Trouble is, I am struggling to find the stero receiver in the price bracket required. Obviuosly, I could overspend in one department and underspend in another and to be honest, they will not know quality if it slapped them in the face. It needs to be silver and they listen to CD's and Radio and I cannot see them ever looking into surround sound although its tempting to get something like a Sony STR495 or somthing which is £119 from richer sounds and press the Stereo button (if there is one). Any ideas ???
