    only thing i would suggest is that maybe the sub deserves a greater outlay

    its a horrible system, the Sony davs550 is a much better buy!!!

    no, i would say have a listen to monitor audio gold reference range as thats very good as well.
    summat like gold 20s, centre and grfx surrounds and then the fastbass 212 for low end duties.
    as an alternative to the arcam, might i suggest the parasound halo c2/52 combo, i foudnthis to be more musical and MUCH better at the AV side of things:far more configurable as well.

    It seems an odd mixture to me with expensive B&W speakers at the front and expensive M&K speakers at the rear. B&W and M&K sound completely different so why don't you go for either one or the other instead of mixing and matching.

    What is the centre that doesn't need upgrading ?
