Preferable to have 6.1 with receiver. Budget around $500-700. Try to keep it as low budget as possible lol... times are tough. To go with my PS3 and sony 46XBR.

With the budget, maybe eBay is your friend.

or drop your wants back to 5.1 and get some Z5500's.

they're not audiophile by a long way, but they're a damn nice sound.

(i finally heard some 'good' speakers data', so i know what im talking about now :D lol)

Z5500's? Wonder if they're better than my current sound system. I'm using a half-arsed hi-fi 5.1 system from sony. At work now will post the model later. Maybe I can do a little tweaking instead and save some money....

Maybe gradually upgrade the Sony speakers. like replacing the two fronts with something better using the cash you have.

This is only an example, but these Tannoys are new with warranty for $500

Also if these Wizards are in good shape, maybe ok, they come with a Energy centre speaker and he will through in some Yamaha rears all for $275

No idea where Davidson is?

These may go well as fronts too
http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Richter-WIZARD-MARK-III-floorstanding-speakers_W0QQitemZ160275984995QQihZ0

These would serve very well as fronts also
http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Mordaunt-Short-MS-815-Floor-Standing-Speakers_W0QQitemZ270266941335QQihZ01

This set of Jamo speakers would be good maybe, but a little above your budget, but they are a complete set with sub and all

Guys be careful buying speakers off Ebay, I got an email from Qualifi (importers of Jamo and Mordaunt Short) that there are a heap of grey imports going around. If it breaks, they wont fix it under warranty. Same goes for most audio video receivers like
