    Hey all,

    I've had a look through the forum for some advice, but haven't yet found a good answer to my question...

    Having just redecorated my living room, I will be mounting my 40 inch Sony Bravia on the wall and will be needing a surround sound setup, to avoid using the crappy speakers built into the TV. Problem is, I only have £300-£350 to spend on both the speakers and an AV receiver.

    Can anybody recommend a solution please?

    I was looking at the Boston Acoustics Soundware XS 5.1 SE which are going for £220 on Richer Sounds, which would leave me just £100ish for the AV receiver. I can see the following AV receivers on Richer Sounds:

    Pioneer VSX322
    Sony STRDH520

    ...both for just £100.

    Would this be a decent solution?

    I will be hooking up a Sky HD box & PlayStation 4.

    Thanks for any advice you can give.

    Munkee

    If you could stretch you budget by another £100, how about this?

    Denon AVRX500 with Canton Movie 90 Speakers

    Otherwise any of these would suit your budget:

    AV Systems

    Main thing is getting a decent amp and spending less on the speakers - these can be upgraded any time.

    I use a Marantz 1402 Av receiver along with Canton 70 cinema package - suits me down to the ground for our TV lounge - I'm sure you can pick up similar items used within your budget. Q-Acoustics are always a popular choice and I believe quite easy to sell on.
