I am making my first foray into Home Cinema and have more or less decided to opt for a budget sub/sat system, eg Yamaha HTiB45 or Sony HT-DDW840 as I already have a DVD player. My reasons for this are primarily aesthetic but also cost. Large speakers, especially the fronts and centre, just wont look good in my living room - trust me on this. The musical ability of the speakers is not of prime importance although, obviously, good performance musically would be a plus. In terms of cost, my thinking is that, if I decide down the line that the sub/sat system doesnt cut the mustard, I wont have blown a fortune and I can reconsider the avenue of full-size speakers. I also know a good second home for a budget system so I can re-coup a good deal of my investment. If I were to opt for a more expensive sub/sat system, eg Kef eggs or B&W VM1s plus receiver, then I would have a system I could not afford to ditch. My questions are, firstly, does my reasoning make sense? I know the Kef eggs, for instance, will probably give better sound than the Yamaha or Sony but not as good as a decent full-size system. Is it worth taking the risk on the eggs (or anything else you can suggest) knowing that I will be stuck with them if they dont do the job satisfactorily? Secondly, does anybody have any other suggestions for budget systems other than the Sony and Yamaha and what are you opinions on the relative merits of these to packages? I had considered the AE Aego P5 but ProLogic II is a must. I know Panasonic and Pioneer do similar systems but, as far as I can see, they are all just ProLogic. Any advice or opinions on the above would be most appreciated.
