So atm I've got a Panasonic 42" G30, PS3, i3 HTPC and a digital set top box. I've only been using the built-in speakers on my Panny for everything(50% movies, 25% ps3, 25% music) so far and I reeeeaaally don't like it. Eventually I want to get 5.1 surround but my current budget doesn't allow for me to go as high up the ladder as I want. Atm I've got around ~500£ which, where I live, allows me to either get a decent AVR+bookshelf speakers, a good AVR or a HTIB blu-ray system, examples below. Denon AVR 1612 & Dali Zensor 1 Denon AVR 1912 Panasonic SC-BTT370 Obviously the HTIB system would give me surround straight away, but I got told that one shouldn't really use the speakers of these systems outside of the systems and I'd hate to have to sell the entire system when I feel like upgrading, which WILL happen. 1612+Zensor 1's tempts me the most atm, since it gives me A LOT better stereo speakers than what I've got now, and when I get the upgrade bug, I'll simply move them to surround duty and get floorstanders. So, what's the 'AVF approved' way of starting up a surround system on a budget?
