Onkyo TXSR608 Amp+ Q Acoustics 2000 5.1 package + speaker cables £849.99 delivered

After scouring the net for highly rated amps and speakers, I focused on the best £1k could get me. The most competitive prices I found for the individual components of this package were as follows

- £445 Onkyo txsr608 amplifier
- £499 Q Acoustics 2000 5.1 package
- £20 25m speaker cable
- £5 1m Hdmi cable
- £5 3m subwoofer cable
- £5 1m optical cable
-----------------------------------------
£979 total using the most competitive prices I could find. Delivery may be extra

I got the whole package for £849.99 from http://www.a1-sound.co.uk/product/on...0-speaker-pack

If I had the space to set this bad boy up I'd be sorely tempted.

The speakers look a bit plasticky and the picture looks like the gloss black ones which are another £100. I am sure the graphite ones are reminiscent of a Alba 80's speaker finish.

I'm not too happy with my Orb Audio speakers now (or I have just got used to them), but these Chinese ones being flogged here do look a bit Aldi like.

I got the Walnut ones....they look good. If you check on google images...you can see the walnut or graphite ones.

So far I have not been disappointed with my purchase!

Splobber - Yes, the gloss white or black are extra but that's the same everywhere

Nice bit of kit. You can spend the remaining £150 on speaker stands.

this is my set up, but I have gloss black for the fronts and I have the QAV rears wall mounted to save on space.

This price isn't massively less than what I paid to be honest. (mixture of Superfi and Quantum Electronics, the latter of which were excellent and open to negotiating on price).

I can recommend the set up - first 5.1 system I have had for a few years and boy have they moved on!
