This multi-Award winning package from Dali still manages to be the best at this price point. The five speakers - four standmounts and one centre - work harmoniously with the E-9F subwoofer to deliver an astonishing sound. It can go up high to way down lown in a snap. Dialogue is clear as you like and the overall soundfield is far-reaching and immersive.

This PMC package managed to unearth so much extra detail in our favourite test discs that for a while we decided to keep it as our reference speaker package. It may be a bit on the pricey side, but the seamless integration and immense power will soon have you forgetting about your bank balance.
