Where and how are you getting those prices?
HTS-3100 sounds like a steal for the price you have mentioned!!!

I dont know much about Sony, ppl have recommended onkyo on top this model. But that was a much higher end onkyo unit..
Before choosing the hometheater system fix your budget.

Sony HT-DDW1600 reviews are not that good.

I haven't had any experience with the sony system.

If 25k is your budget then have a demo of HTS3200 and YHT195
The Picture of Sony is HTib is 40K (MRP), the 25K sony will have very small satellite speakers, so you can go for Onkyo. Can you tell from where did you got the quote.
wow 13+k??? Thyagu why don't you help other forum members who are looking for budget HTiBs by telling them from where you are getting this deal?

just felt this might be appropriate bump but I got a lightly used demo piece s3100 from reliance hyper in gurgaon for 14k. Bought today for uncles birthday
A beautiful, well-constructed speaker with class-leading soundstage, imaging and bass that is fast, deep, and precise.
