there is a new offer from profx.. Ht package includes denon 1708 and profx fusion 5 - 5.1 set, cables, installation.. All for 37k..
I am not able to find many reviews about profx fusion 5.. Any views here?
I had recently dropped in at a ProFX showroom here and was offered the Fusion 5 speaker system (front 3-way 150W towers, huge 100W 3-way centre unit, 100W bi-polar surrounds) along with a new Denon AVR-1509 AV Receiver all for 39k. I thought it was a good deal.
Haven't had a demo on this system yet.
I plan to get a Samsung 50 inch Full HD plasma (costs around 1.3 lakhs now - latest model) and a good Pioneer DV 610 DVD player (with HDMI output and 1080p upscaling, USB port etc) for my hall.
At the outset Welcome to the forum.
The Denon 1509 is a decent receiver, and at 39K with a full 5.1 speaker set is certainly a good deal. I have asked Shankar Ram to give me a call as soon as a 1909 or even the 1509 is available for a demo. I am looking at setting up a very similar system for a friend of mine in Coimbatore.
I am little weary of buying anything with a personal demo. Reviews are one thing, but whether the system meets your individual taste in music and movies can only be confirmed with a demo. The ProFx guys will tell you to confirm your order with advance before they show you a demo. Don't fall for that. Tell them you will like to see a demo without any commitment.
I would also suggest you hear the Denon with Polk's entry level monitors just for comparison.
Both these products are good. As Anand has mentioned the Oppo 981 is in a different league at around 17.5, and if you can afford it it is worth it. If not the Pioneer 610 will give you good service. Don't pay more than 6000 for the Pioneer, though, and make sure it is region free before you buy it.

Was initially thinking of going for a HTIB (Onkyo 5100 @ 39k) but the bulk of the recommendations on the forum seem to be against the HTIB.
I am now thinking of going for Denon AVR (1509 / 1709 / 1909)
