    I want to get an all in one system. Amp speakers and sub together I have currently got a cheap Goodmans 750 pro-logic system which is pretty basic as you can imagine. I want to get a better Dolby Digital, DTS system with a budget of about £300 squid, I was looking at the PARAMOUNT HCS5300D, does anybody recommend it or another?

    Ta in advance

    While I was wandering around the usual big high street names, I had a demo of the Panasonic SCHT70 at Currys, it's a player, built in amp and 5.1 speaker set up.

    Very nice at £499.88.

    Check it out carefully though as the amp may not give you much in the way of aux inputs etc - I didn't look that hard.

    Thanks for that!

    I have ended up buying the Videologic Digitheatre VL-60483 DTS it was slightly more than I was going to pay, but it was worth it. The inputs are a bit thin on the ground with 1 optical, 1 pair of phonos and 1 coaxial, but the sound is very clear and powerful considering the size of the speakers.

    Anyway thanks again

    James :)

    Welcome to the World of Home cinema, prepare to loose all the money from your bank account over the next few years as you eventually upgrade and upgrade.:D
