    Hello all

    I'm looking to setup a new seperate system from scratch that i could use for my cd/tape/tuner seperates and also my tv and pc connected too

    Never used seperates before but would like 9.1 sound or if can't get then 7.1

    Any recomendations for Seperates to use/speakers to use would be appreciated

    As i say i am a complete newbie to this :D

    Hello DanB,
    We need to know a little bit more.
    What is your budget? How big is your room? Do you want floorstanders or standmounts? Are you looking at just music or movies as well?
    The more info the better. :)
    Cheers
    Knight

    You may be pushing it to get a good system including everything you've listed for a £1000 including stands and cables.
    A good way is to look second hand especially for things like amplifiers and tuners. There is very little to go wrong and some good bargains to be had. Same with speaker stands and sometimes speakers.
    Here's something to start you off which should come in at round about the £1000 mark
    Denon DVD 700
    Denon AVR 1804 Amplifier S/H
    Denon DVR 695 Tape Deck S/H
    Pure DRX 701ES Tuner S/H
    Monitor Audio Bronze series speakers
    Centre, B1 Rears, B2 Fronts. - Haven't included a sub. You can add later if you want.
    Stands - Attacama Nexus S/H
    Cables - Try using standard twin and earth electrical cable as Speaker cable and you'll need 3 sets of interconnects. These can cost anything from £20 > Whatever you want to pay!) or you can try making your own. It's a good way of saving a substantial amount of money. Plenty of info on the cables forums about this and other cable topics.
