    I have pioneer 814 amp and a panasonic S75 dvd player, i'd like to buy a 5.1 speaker package. I like a 'crisp' sound and a punchy bass. I prefer the traditional 'bulky' speakers rather than the small sat speakers. Any suggestions upto £500 ?

    Hi Yogi,
    Acoustic Energy Evo Series or the Monitor Audio Bronze range. Both have very good reviews.

    Definitely try out Monitor Audio. I bought a cheap pair of Silver 8i floor standers last year to try them out and was so impressed I've since changed the rest of my 7.1 system to match.

    I'll vouch for the Acoustic Energy speakers - I've some original Aegis 1s and they're pretty good for the money. You can get the entire Evo kit of 5 speakers and sub or get them piece at a time. Here's a link to prices:

    Idealy though, try to demo those and others (such as the MAs mentioned) for a comparison, and to see if you like the sound of them.

    HTH

    Acoustic-energy have their own 'Factory Direct' clearance shop. here
    They have some A-stock Aesprit at the moment but you've missed out on the 'big' speakers.
