    I had originally posted this in one big thread but it was suggested I break it up into the indivdual forums.

    I'm replacing an all-in-one system. I have about $2500 for budget.

    For speaker possibilities I have picked out either the Fluance SX-HTB/SVS 25-31PCi combo or a Rocket by Onix Extremely Luscious Theater (ELT).

    I would most likely also get a Denon 3805 receiver and a Denon DP-29F turntable.

    My girlfriend wants a CD changer so I have thought maybe a Denon 1910 DVD player and a Denon DCM-280 CD changer. Is this a good combo? Should I talk her out of a changer altogether? Or should I get this functionality in one unit? Maybe a Denon DVM-4800? Any suggestions?

    Our room is about 15X20 at max. We listen to all kinds of music from Classical to Heavy Metal. We watch a ton of movies. I would like to stay about $500 at the most for this area.

    I greatly thank you for any help.

    Twere me, I'd hang off on the 1910 for a short while. It just seems that every new player has some ????irregularities (ie bugs) that need to be worked out first. The Denon 1815 (or 2815 if you wanted DVD-A) and both solid units and below your price point and you could have your changer and DVD player all rolled into one.

    MSRO = $500, which means if you haggle a li'l bit at an authorized store locally, you can get it for less than that.

    Even at that price, it's DAMNED solid. Crutchfields has it, Onkyo themselves has it. No shipping or sales tax sweetens that pot.

    Also consider the Yamaha s1500.
