    Hi

    I'm looking for a decent sounding One-Box-solution that has a:

    clock, Radio, DVD player, audio signal decoder (DD, DTS...), amplifier and speakers 2/3/4/5.... all in the same case.

    Of course I dont expect true sorround sound or anything close to it, but something decent.. perhaps like the

    Cambridge Soundworks CD-740

    http://reviews.cnet.com/Cambridge_So...2.html?tag=top

    or

    B(l)ose
    http://qualitysound.bose.com/wrcd_wave_index.htm

    Except this box would have to take DVDs and do reasonable decent job of the audio.

    As you might have guessed this would be for a bedroom / secondary system that I dont want to do any cabling for.

    Anyone know of such a box ?

    Thanx,
    Prashanth

    One suggestion which you would hear here a lot, stay away from Bose. If in doubt, do a search on the forum. Theres a pretty good Onkyo home theater in a box which you can look at if you want surround sound.That CSW radio is ok but you wont get surround sound with any radio. If you just want a radio you might want to check up some Tivoli offerings at Tweeter store around you. Heres a few links http://www.tweeter.com/product/index...507&cp=1230988
    http://www.tweeter.com/product/index...21&cp=.1230988 Best advice is as everyone would say here, take your own CD and check out various products by asking them to play your CD and decide what your ears like best

    I'd never buy into the B(L)ose marketing machine, infact i've saved :) some people from doing the same.

    The reason for seeking this "one box solution"

    NOT to be confused with an HTiB

    is to completely avoid wiring the sorround or any other kind of speakers.

    I am familiar with the Tivoli, but it does not take DVDs.

    Thanx,
    Prashanth

    There are a number of mini HT systems that have DD and DTS built in and have only two speakers. They are kind of like the bookshelf stereos that are available but are DVD based. I think JVC and Sony both make them.
