    Hi everyone,
    Thought buying a TV was bad!!, now looking to buy sound system. Just wondering what people think of these prices.

    Amp is between Onyko 505 for £250 or push for Onyko 605 for £350.

    Speakers was going for Kef1005 for £200 or do I really go for it and get the Kef 2005 for £400

    Plus Richer sounds have got the 505+kef1005 and Onyko dvd player dvsp405 for £449.95 this sounds really good value.

    Not really sure whether spending extra money will make much difference.

    Hi,

    This is a very subjective question that really only you can answer, depending on your requirements and preferences. First thing to do is to review the features that are different. For the amps this is ability to process HD sounds for the 605, also I don't think the 505 will up-convert all input video signals (composite, component, etc...) to output as 1 HDMI cable. Second thing is to get to a store and arrange a listen/demo of both amps with both speakers. Then you will able to judge if you need the 2005's over the 1005's and then you can decide on the amp.

    Good luck.

    You really need to decide if you want to take advantage of TrueHD sound, which the 605 will handle over HDMI and the 505 will not.

    I'd recommend paying the extra £100, don't think you would be disappointed.
