    I have a H/K AVR-110 with the Sony WM40, and Cambridge Ensemble II, Center Plus and Surround II's. I also have a Samsung 909 DVD player.

    I want to upgrade the DVD and speakers, and I am considering the JBL N series, along with the Pannie CP72.

    Cost is the definite factor here; wife does not see the value in a nice HT setup. I've seen other posts about the N series available for 250 bucks, but have not found that deal online anywhere.

    So first, would the N series be a huge step up from the Cambridges? And how about the DVD player? And second, is that packaged N series deal better than the Cambridges? And where could I find a link to buy them?

    Thanks!

    For the N series, try www.etronics.com. Look for the NSP1 set.
    I think they have been on this site.

    OK, I see that the NSP-1 is 209.99 or the NSP-1-II is 269.00. Would this setup be significantly better than my Ensemble II, Center Plus and Surround II setup?

    Thanks!

    OK, one more time then:

    1. Would you recommend the NSP-1II over the NSP-1? What are the major differences?

    2. I have the Sony SA-WM40, which everyone says is an excellent sub for the price. Don't need to replace?

    3. What about the Pannie DVD over the Samsung? Big diff?

    Thanks!

    I'm not familiar w/ those models of DVD players. What are you trying to improve by getting the Panny (please spell it this way [​IMG] ) over the Samsung?
    As far as the new version of the NSP-1, I would just go for it. You'll kick yourself later if you don't [​IMG]
    And yeah, that sub is good. I would hold onto that. Especially since you're on a budget. The difference in price between the 2 NSP-1 sets is not going to buy you a better sub.
