Preferably a good all in one system as i've heard they're easier to set up.
I wouldn't get an all in one. If you do you may find if one part breaks then the whole system needs replacing or repairing. Get yourself on superfi and richer sounds. You will find good blu-ray players for around 100-150 quid. Then look at the recievers, yamaha and onkyo make good 'budget' recievers that will decode all your lossless sound (linear pcm, dolby trueHD and dts hd master audio) for around 250-300 notes. After that then you'll need speakers and cables which you can blow the rest of your budget on. I'll have a look around tomorrow to get you more details on what hardware is prob best for your budget, can't now as only using my phone and i'm about to watch saving private ryan blu-ray on my set-up with the volume turned up
Right here we go
Blu-ray player £150
Speakers £300 or £485
Go for the more expensive ones if you can but you must realise that you need cables (something like this http://www.richersounds.com/product/...e-symphony-100
) and maybe some stands to add onto the cost and if you do (they can be expensive) you may need to get the older Q's which are a lot cheaper.
I have Q Acoustic speakers and I absolutely love them, they sound superb. There are others out there for roughly the same price but he Q's get fantastic reviews and they are very hard to beat. If you can test them compared to others in a similar price bracket (quite a few stores will set up demos) then do so as sound is a personal preferance at the end of the day but the examples I've given you can get in your price range are very hard to beat and you will be very happy with them, I know I am
