Hey Fellas,

This is my 1sr post here, hope me posting in the right forum.

I am currently living in Saudi Arabia. Now i need your help on which music system to buy. Main purpose will be movies & gaming through Xbox.

I was looking for something like Bose speakers (series 3) or Jamo & an Onkyo 636/737 AVR.

However, a lot of people have told me that Bose charges a very high premium for the name. Hence, we can get similar quality as much lower price.

I went to do some market research. However, here on Saudi Arabia the options are limited. Have mentioned below my findings. Need your suggestions so that I can close my purchase.

All values are in INR. 1USD = 60 INR

Onkyo tx nr 525 - 30k
Onkyo tx nr 636 - 36k
Onkyo tx nr 737 - 41k

Bose accoustimass 10 (3) - 61.5k
Bose accoustimass 6 (3) - 41.6k

Jamo s 608 hcs - 29.5k
Jamo c 607 - 32k

Onkyo 3700 - 26.8k
Onkyo 5700 - 42.2k
Hts 9400 - 61.5k

Discounts may be given on below price -

Yamaha rxa 830 and 840 - 64000
Rxv - 777 - 57600
Rxv - 677 - 48000
Rxv 577 - 38400

Please suggest as no Polk, denon, jbl speakers available here.

I am getting interested in Onkyo AVR 636 or 737. Need your inputs here.

Also the speaker system is either Bose or Jamo. Really need inputs on this point, very confused.

You must LISTEN to whatever you are considering. That is the final test.
However, from MY view, I'd Not be getting anything BOSE. I see literally dozens of posts here from people having problems with Bose subs.
Also, Bose is a VERY jealous company and does not wilingly give out ANY technical stuff for the fix it people. In addition, they use proprietary connectors so hooking Bose up to other stuff can sometimes be a problem.
Any chance of doing some shopping over in Doha? I think the selection is somewhat better.
