    The monitor's are superb.

    The B4's can be had for only £750 in black or beech.
    http://www.hifibitz.co.uk/Warehouse/details.asp?ProductID=MONB4AVBK

    Here is another 3 combos for around £1200.

    One of the absolut best sat/sub speakers, Kef Eggs 2005.2 and the powerhouse Denon 2003 including all cables for £1140 (observe it is instore only though while extra speakers are at £100 each) = a superb combo!!!
    For the deal http://www.creative-audio.co.uk/2803KHT.htm
    For Kef reviews http://www.kef.com/KHT/reviews.htm


    AE evo3 "what hifi product of the year 2003" for only £750 with 3year warranty from creative(extra speakers at £150 each) and match it with superb Yamaha 740 for £337 from empire and money left for cables = Again another superb combo.
    Price on speakers http://www.creative-audio.co.uk/AEevo3b.htm
    For info on speakers http://www.acoustic-energy.co.uk/products/aegisevo/aegisevoloudspeakers.html
    For amp price http://www.empiredirect.co.uk/productdetails/index.asp?modelcode=YAM-RXV740RDSTI&clear=


    3rd option, would be the stunning Infinity Oreus (Respected and independent tester areadvd.de rate it equal with Eggs), and a 5star from what hifi for £610 at (extra speaker cost £101)
    and match it with Yamaha RX-V1440 for £535 (£800 in UK) and you again should be able to be around £1200 with cables. Update - after hornydragon's suggestion, a H/K AVR-4550 for £467 from hificomponents.

    Update2 - hornydragon, did you know that Infinity & H/K & JBL is part of the same German company? Maybe that is why Oreus matches H/K so well?

    Price on Oreus http://www.softjam.co.uk/acatalog/Boxed_Harman_Oreus.html
    The amp prices www.hificomponents.de

    Finally for loads of reviews on Denon 2003, Yamaha 740 (there isn't any on 1400 but there is 1 on 2400 which is the same but with more power) see my thread -
    http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=80217

    What do you guys say about my combos???

    Oops sorry, its US one. Strange though that they don't sell Oreus in the states from what I can see in their US site.
