I am after a CD/DVD, tuner, amp, floor standers with the option of using it for 5.1. I know its kind of an open ended question but Im hoping the feeling will be unanimous. Thanks!
At that price range i'd seriously consider a stand mount speaker. You get a lot more for your money than with a floorstander. If your looking for 5.1 one day you can always demote the standmounts to the rears at a later date.
If you can go second hand on the Amp and tuner. possibly the CD player as well. Cd player is a bit more risky as the transport mechanism may fail.
Does your budget include cables?
All I can suggest is something like this:
Secondhand Denon DVD700 appox £100
Secondhand Denon AVR1804 AV amp approx £200
Secondhand Pure DRX-701ES Tuner approx £70
Monitor Audio Bronze B2 Speakers - £190 (New)
B1's are cheaper but not quite as good.
Attacama Stands - £40 S/H - Ebay
Interconnects - Allow about £60 or so for 2 interconnects. Stay away from super expensive interconnects. I doubt you'll be able to tell the difference anyway. As for speaker cable try some good quality twin and earth electrical cable before you spend loads on 'Special' cables.
