Onkyo TX-SR313 or Yamaha RX-V373??
English

Hi

Looking at both options but cant decide which. Also would I be better going with speakers packaged with amp from the same manufacturer or buying from different source i.e Tannoy SFX5.1? I already have a decent pair of Philips 5 x 100w speakers from a previous home cinema system. I was quite happy with quality from those so am curious to know would i see a massive jump in quality with the Tannoys or others in that price bracket? I am not an obsessive audiophile or anything and am limited to a budget of around 500 for amp and speakers or even cheaper if i can get away with old speakers. The system will primarily be used for 5.1 surround from blu ray source. Im not bothered about c.d/audio source playback etc. All suggestions welcome.

Thanks

Any reason why you're only considering small satellite speakers? You could buid a nice set up out of Q Acoustic speakers which wouldn't break the bank and can produce a considerably bigger and better sound than the SFX5.1 without being too obtrusive. Wink

haha sorry,im new to this game.havent a clue which is obvious. you reckon that package then?ill have a look.looks around my budget aswell. what do you suggest for a blu ray player?ive read an awful lot of bollix about these. from what ive researched picture quality is dictated by same chipset which comes from same factories regardless of make or model. more expensive models your just paying for extra gimmicks and features which i wont need anyway.

 Or to simplify things you could get the Tannoy HTS101 package. Glowing reviews everywhere, even picked the best speaker package for up to £600 here on WHF and it's surely better than the SFX5.1 one. It's just over £300 on Amazon right now. It might not be as good as if you built your own package out of Q Acoustics 2020i and matching centre plus a sub but it's a cheaper and easier alternative.  Wink

thanks,decisions decisions!dont know which opnions to go with. as i said, im not an audiophile, anythin that is signifciantly better than an all in one home cinema kit(not settin bar high,i know) and isnt too expensive. i know silly money could be spent on these things if i had it
