So glad you've reviewed these, I've been thinking about them for a while now. Would you recommend these over B&W DM 602's? I know the 602's are knocking on now but you can get a 5.1 set up for around the same price (second hand of course!).
Quick question:As a novice, looking to get sound for a tv/ps3 setup, am i right in thinking that these speakers woudl have to be purchased in conjunction with an AV receiver?Cheers.
@CountryBumpkin - you are correct. Your options are:A) Buy the Teufel Theater 100 speakers and get a suitable AV Receiver. Here is our list of AV Receiver reviews:http://www.trustedreviews.com/...The current "affordable" champion is the Onkyo TX-SR608 at the top of that list.B) Alternatively, Teufel do make speakers with built-in decoders:http://www.teufelaudio.com/hom...If your needs are modest, Plan B is the cheaper option. However, opting for Speakers Only allows you to select a Receiver that meets your needs / budget. This would typically have more inputs, additional processing and other desireable audiophile functions.
What about the Onkyo HTX-22HD + SKS11 which has previously had a good review - http://www.trustedreviews.com/.... This has now been superseeded to the HTX-22HDX + SKS22X although I'm unsure of the differences other than it now has a digital screen on the sub. Has the bonus of supporting HDMI 1.4 should you want to go 3D in the future. This is my most likely option for a purchase soon if anyone can suggest anything better for the price (available for £320 from superfi)
@JohnBeeBeeI have the Onkyo HTX-22HDX (a terrible name), in just the 2.1 setup, and I think it sounds fantastic. Input options aren't vast, but they're decent for a small setup. Sound quality is excellent, though, particularly on Blu-Ray, and the easy HDMI control is nice.
Thanks for all the advice, really helpful!! Does sound painfully close to being out of my price range unfortunately as speakers+av receiver would be about £800 roughly, i hazard a guess. If a cheaper set up is possible a suggestion would be great. Basically am getting a new tv and would like some decent sound quality to go with it on a budget.
@CountryBumpkin: I'd recommend a Kef and Denon setup and if you shop around you can get good deals on them as a package.
