    i am in the market for a diminutive surround set up and my 3 main choices are:
    kef kht1005 (£300)
    tannoy efx5.1 (£229)
    jamo 305pdd/dv50 (£300)

    at the moment i may be able to get any of these for under £300

    i recognise that the jamo comes with an amp so it does seem the best 'bargain', however i am getting an xbox 360 so the dvd would be redundant.

    so, with that in mind, which is the best 'speaker' set up
    ta in advance

    Don't miss out on the Canton CD1 (or maybe CD101 these days) - see Jake James' Powerbuy thread on this site. Excellent little setup for £240.

    would the DVD be redundant, say if you want to play multi region disks, will the Xbox do this and is the Jamo hackable?

    sorry for the confusion dudes.

    if i need an amp i'm prepared to buy one for around £350 or so. this increases the budget somewhat but makes the the jamo seem a little 'too good' if you know what i mean.
    as for multi region, i'm not too fussed. the xbox will be the DVD front end.
    so to sum up, which speaker package is best. and, at the prices mentioned, is the jamo still the best value
    thanks

    hitachi 42pd6600 btw

    Info on the Jamo system you mentioned can be found here:

    http://www.homecinemachoice.com/cgi-bin/displayreview.php?reviewid=3208

    There's also info on how to make it multi-region.

    It seems to be a fair deal - especially since it used to sell for £600!

    BUT - you mentioned that you'de have £300 for the speakers & another £350 for the amp? OR £350 for speakers & amp together? Cos' if we're talking about £650 - then you can do better than that Jamo!

    thanks for the replies fellas but i have finally opted for this setup:

    tannoy efx5.1 and yamaha ysx 357

    came in at £347 delivered when 'peter tyson' took £30 off because i did not require the bundled pair of stands

    i think i got a bargain
