    After some help please people.

    I have a Tosh 36" Widescreen TV , Sky+ and about to get a Panasonic HS2.
    I currently have a Videologic DTS 5.1 surround sound unit , however would like to get rid of this and get a decent amp/reciever to hook up to my speakers. I will then upgrade the standard tosh speakers in due course.

    Can anyone advise what sort of thing I should be looking at ? as I have no real knowlegde in this field.............

    Depends upon your budget, space available, music/movies priorities etc.

    Sorry to be so negative but options are so many these days that more info. is needed.

    I am considering the Yamaha HTR5630 , as for £150 it looks
    like a good starting point? i.e. it has all the connections and features for a first attempt at a home cinema etc

    If thats the case a package deal willbe better value as the standard speakers arent going sound any better (well not £150 better) with the amp stretch to £250ish and a package can be had yam do one with that amp and speakers or check out richersounds for bargain speaker packages
