  1. Yeah that's an option I'm considering, I may just get the AVR new or a discounted speaker or two if there's a good deal.
  2. Yeah found their site, cheers!
  3. I may go down and check some out in Adelaide Wednesday if time permits or next Saturday. I'll probably go to Denis White and Challenge Hi-Fi while I'm down.
  4. Hmm, so after thinking a bit, I might just throw my budget out the window... Now I'm thinking either system 8 or 9 on Eastwood hi-fi, but swapping out AVR for a RX-V2085 or 1085 or going for This Wharfedale 11.3 Diamond Speaker set with either AVR. I will likely be able to mount the rears on the wall now after some discussion. 😂 (May also wall mount the TV 🤔) Also something I forgot to ask, what cables would you recommend? Or would you recommend to buy some 14 (12?) gauge wire and do it myself?
  5. Well I looked at what my current system is, it's the HT-H6550WM. Although the centre speaker is different to the pictures I can find online, so they must have updated it after my model. Nothing special really ahaha. The Good Guys page even claims it's 1000w lol. https://www.thegoodguys.com.au/samsung-3d-blu-ray-home-theatre-system-1000w-ht-hHT-H6550WM/XY6550wm But thanks for the link and help so far hopefullguy! Will definitely watch that space. Snoopy8, I think I might go the stepped approach, or otherwise is there good sales like with Tv's on black Friday and boxing day etc? Pics are of the front setup and second pic is of the plugs for the fronts, centre and sub. Rears are wireless. I take it I could just cut the plugs off and put them into the receiver like normal and that'd be fine? -- Nevermind that last part, probably be better off getting some new wiring for easier resale down the line. Think I covered everyone's responses... I think I may raise my budget to 2.5-3k though...
  6. Thanks, must have missed that about the A780... I'm in the nuclear wasteland lol, I'm in Kadina so about 1.5 hours from Adelaide xD. I'll try to see what's around though. Do you think system 7 here (https://www.eastwoodhifi.com.au/surround-packages.htm) would be good, but with a RX-V1085 receiver instead of the one with it?
  7. Thanks! That seems alright. I'm more looking for reccomendations on a complete separates package to put together so to speak as I heard that can give much better bang for buck.
  8. So I'm looking for reccomendations for a new complete setup. Budget is around 2k (Please let me know if going much higher will make a huge difference) for the whole setup, either 5.1 or 7.1 including receiver. I've heard good things about the Yamaha Rx v1085 and the A780 (not sure if they'll fit the budget however), but open to others, I'm not really sure on what combination of speakers and sub though. Leaning more towards 5.1, because not as expensive/can spend more on better options and then the receiver I get will still have 2 channels free if I decide to go for Dolby Atmos speakers later on. Will be replace my Samsung HTS 5.1 system I bought a couple years ago. Looking for good bass and general sound. Mostly used for TV shows (not broadcast tv), movies and gaming on PS4 Pro. Preferably front and rears would be floor standing as I don't have anywhere to put them otherwise.  If I left anything out let me know! Any help is appreciated, I'm pretty lost lol. Cheers!
  9. Sorry, I'll post over there. Thought this might be best area because purchasing advice aha. Thanks!
