What is Foxtel and Setanta?

What is your budget? You will need a receiver. That is the audio/video switcher as well as the audio processor. It contains amps to drive your main speakers. You will need a sub. That's the .1 when you see 5.1 or 7.1. You can get entire systems with everything or piece it together. It depends on your budget, goals and the room this is going into.

Foxtel and Setanta are pay tv.
Well i dont really have a budget.
I just want the high quality stuff but not the best.
If i want something and i dont have the money, i'll just try and save money.
Could you recommend me some products?
Also, what would be better, 5.1 or 7.1?
Im looking to get the speakers wall mountable.

Thanks

Even eliminating the top tier products that still leaves thousands of options. Way too many to offer suggestions on. Audition as many speakers as you can in quality listening rooms. For receivers, get one with the features you need.
