At my entertainment local store I found Arcam AV recivers. The price of a Arcam FMJ AVR360 is 1,260 pounds. How do you rate this price is it high or normal as everwhere?
I was looking as well at Harman Kardon. Has anyone have experience with thoose AVR?
AVR: AKAI AA-1050, speakers: Stereo speakers from Philips MCM700
Gaming: PS2 slim
TV: Schneider CRT 55cm (for now)
Tonik, don't be swayed over by the likes of Arcam & Anthem given your budget. You need revealing enough speakers to appreciate the benefits. What's your total budget for the entire system?

I really love to compare AVR before buying. So lets see, for a AVR I was looking to spend around 300 pounds (In Croatia 300 pounds is similar to someones month salary) And for speakers around 170 pounds.
With a total budget of around £470, I would recommend £200 for AV receiver, & £270-300 for speakers including subwoofer.
By speakers I mean 5.1 speaker set.
5.1 speakers would be a great deal. One question, I see that some speakers are more plastic from the outside, but others are more in wood. Does it have any difference in sound quality between wood speakers and plastic speakers?
