    been years since we've bought a stereo system but need a new one now. There are some nice mini/micro units but I'd like a really decent one. Anyone bought one or into hifi enough to recommend a make?

    just to add

    if you buy good kit and have ordinary speaker cable that makes a difference too, i paid £100 for wiring, but my kit isnt good enough to hear the difference :lol:

    yep me too. Bose sound studio at Premium outlets absolutely amazing. Their stuff is SOOOOO expensive but yeah, wow

    They did this demo when I was there, got us all in the studio and sat us down. these HUGE speakers in front, side, to the back. Started to play the music and yeah it was just awesome. When it said "youre in a concert hall now" It sounded like it.

    Anyway after blowing us away with the sound, one of the bose guys comes in and quietly removes the huge speakers which turn out to be cardboard cut outs :) underneath them are tiny 3inch or so cube speakers which were actually producing the sounds.

    yep exactly what they did with me, with the speakers, they were tiny 2 on each bracket pointing in different directions

    my sound on my pc is 5.1 surround and tiny speakers and it just sounds awesome :)
