    I've finally decided that I am going to be purchasing a Panasonic 50" G10 and an Onkyo 507 which I'm happy about.

    But I don't know which 5.1 speakers to buy. The room is approx 15ft x 14ft and it's a converted loft space with a carpet. I'll be using it for PS3 gaming and Blu Ray films. My budget is around £300, definately not above £350, and I'd like them to be in black.

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated :thumbsup:

    Hey there mate,

    I've got the exact same amp as you and i am running a set of Harmon Kardon HKTS 7 off of it. If you can live with them being in silver you can get them from ebay for under £200 link below:

    NEW HARMAN KARDON HKTS7 HOME CINEMA 5.1 SPEAKER SYSTEM on eBay, also, Home Cinema Systems, DVD Home Cinema, Consumer Electronics (end time 13-Jun-09 18:58:22 BST)

    Or if you really need them in black, richersounds do them for £350, link below:

    HARMAN KARDON KARD-HKTS7-BLK at Richer Sounds - HI-FI Separates, Home Cinema, Speakers, MP3 DVD Portables, Plasma LCD, etc.

    I bought a set from ebay and for the price (under £200) they are amazing. I was also looking for a black set but when i stumbled upon them there was no way i could pass them by. They actually look quite nice next to my black set up, i've got them wall mounted and they look great and sound even better. As you can tell I'm a big fan of these speakers and would be willing to spend £350 on them but someone else may be able to recommend an alternative for that amount.

    All the best

    Saf

    Thanks Saf.

    I've seen your posts about the speakers in this forum. The sub woofer looks like a huge beast!

    I really do want black to blend in with the tv, ps3, cabinet etc, and £350 is my budget. I'm hoping someone can recommend another set of speakers.

    There is so much choice of 5.1 speakers I don't know which will be a good match with the Onkyo amp. :rolleyes:

    Agreed, these are also excellent value for the money and also from a good brand name.

    Cheers
