A/V System need help please

Hi evertone i need help i am undecided about what to do about an a/v system, i have a seperate hifi system for music , and want to run a seperate a/v system alongside , probally a budget system, and was wondering if something like a yamaha rvx373 with boston sound wave se and a panasonic 220 bluray would really out perform a one box system , would it be a lot better,, and do you have any other suggestions budget is 600.00 thanks.

One advice regarding blu ray player, especially if you're on a budget:  Get this player instead. You won't notice any quality difference.

According to the thread I linked to the OP has a Sony 790, no need to change that.

The name rang a bell (although my brain was telling me slightly different kit). Hopefully the OP will be back today to clarify the inconsistency.

No offence taken, just wanting to clarify the setup, and I'm sorry to hear about the job loss. My view is the system you suggest will outperform an all in one. Are you able to demo? Having experience of a good setup you should be a decent judge of whether there's a difference, how significant it is and which you can live with.

RE: A/V System need help please

thanks its been a big fall from earning good money and buying what you want and when, to having to compromise we had to move to a smaller house  ,so lounge is 13x12, i know that a top end system wipes the floor against a one box system, but would a budget system do the same , big boss is correct the panny 110 is almost the same as the 220 so have saved there and the yamaha rvx is now 179.00 on web  so its just speakers to go thanks for reply.

See if you can go up to RX-V673. Contact Creative Audio. They're selling the RX-A1020 & 2020 at almost half price. RX-V673 may be available at a tempting price as well.

Boston Soundware XS speakers are brilliant for the size & price.
