Hi Leon,

Welcome to the forum.At this budget you have to look at Sony or Philips HTiBs.They come with the player too.Visit shops like ezone,croma or Realiance Digital and scout around.ezone has demo rooms too.

cheers,
sri

Thanks Sri for your suggestion .... Many people in this thread requesting for ONKYO HTIB. Can you pls tell me what is the different between Philips and Onkyo. If Onkyo better then Philips and it's good for watching movies and Music, I can increase my bedget to 20-22 K.

Looking your valuble comments...

It depends on your budget.
In said budget,Philips is better.If you increse budget ,Onkyo Htib takes the cake.Similarly Denon in Highend section.

Hi Leon,
As a starting point I strongly suggest to audition Philips 3571 HTIB with your favourite movies and music collection. Once you are done with this, move on with same collection, to other HTIB's with higher price /better features.

You may be surprised to hear that some other HTIB's having higher price /better features still don't deliver sound as good as Philips 3571.

Regds,

Re: Need advice to buy HT with player - budget 18k - Sony Z 290K - Philips 3571

This weekend went to Croma and Reliance digital , Mount Road...

I checked Philips 3371 , 3571 and Sony Z -290 K and Z 390 K.

Price wise Philips and Sony Z 290 K ( around 17000 ) is same and Z390K ( 19500 ) is little expensive.

Show room people told me that go to Sony 290k or 390k. Compare with Philips Sony is good output bass sound for Movies and music also.

I would like to know which one should I go.

Also they said you will get HDMI cable with Sony, I need to buy seperate if I go with philips 3371 / 3571.

Pls let me know advantage and disadvantages of BOTH HTIB.

Thanks in advance,

Leon.

Spent 19,500/- on a Sony dav 510. it has just come into the market as a substitute for the outgoing 390k model. It has some slightly different features. I had checked this out vis a vis Sony 390, 290, Onkyo 3100 and phillips 3571. celine dion "power of love" for 2 channel sound and eagles "hotel california" for 5.1 sound and PQ. I like my bass tight and loud.

IMO phillips had the richest and best SQ. followed by the 390, 290 and 3100, went for the sony view its brand image and service. installed at home and viewing thru a samsung 29" slim. I'm happy and satisfied (for now).
Cheers
