Surround Sound - quick question

Hi guys.
Well it's two quick questions actually.

See the product below:

a rgos website: search for GHC57PRO

My first question is - on a tight budget, and a fairly small room, is this an ok deal?

My second question - the larger wooden speakers - obviously one's the sub, but are the other two front or rear speakers? Sorry if that's a dumb question.

Any help would be much appreciated!!

The really big wooden one is the sub, the two other wooden ones are the front speakers, the two taller silver ones are rears, and the silver one lying on its side is the center speaker.

Goodmans stuff seems to be pretty nice nowadays, I doubt you'd go far wrong with that.

Thanks! I noticed that on the lxdirect site they have the previous model - GCH56PRo - looks a little nicer but the front speakers are smaller. Which would you go for out of the two?

I would go for the newer one personally. There wouldn't be much of a noticable difference, but I notice the ***** one has a "composite digital input" which is most probably a coax-digital input, so you can plug external devices into it. If you have sky plus for example, you could get an optical-coax converter and have 5.1 dolby digital on certain broadcasts.
