    Right, this is what I already have:

    Pioneer DV-717 DVD Player
    Sony STR-DB830 Reciever
    Acoustic Energy Aegis Three Loudspeakers
    Acoustic Energy Aegis One Loudspeakers
    Acoustic Energy Aegis Center Speaker
    Paradign PS1000 Sub

    Now, I'm replacing the reciever with the Denon 3802 and am thinking about replacing the Paradign sub......

    Any ideas for around £500??

    REL seems to be the favourite but as an alternative there is a rather nice M & K sub for sale in the classified forum.

    REAL tempting mate! The thing is I won't be getting the reciever/sub for another 2-3 weeks...... If you've still got it then - who knows??

    If you want a loopy subwoofer, how about the Paradigm Servo 15? Just under 500 quid at Richer Sounds and they still have some apparently (I´m trying to get one sent over here to Spain).

    Also consider the Rels or the M&K, all great subs.

    cheers

    Rel Q200 can be got for just over 500 quid if you shop around.

    Q150 for a bit less.

    M&K are more expensive 700 quid upwards again you´d need to shop around.

    Or keep an eye on the classified section, there is a Q100 for 99 quid at the moment!!

    I am thinking about the Rel Q150

    Anyone got one, or know of any online reviews?.

    The Q150 have suffered quite a few problems recently, mine included.

    You will find some lengthy threads about them in here.

    I liked mine for movies but was less impressed with its musical ability.

    I changed mine for a Strata III. It seems to integrate with my system much easier and has a better blend when playing CDs.

    But that's just my setup with my ears ;)

    Mike.
