both Marantz and B&W are available in India. I am quit fond of Marantz but I find B&W a tad bright except for their small 303.

This time I played safe and eventually bought Sony HTiB system and Sony Wega 29". I know, it's not a choice of audiophiles here, but I am novice when it comes to audio.

Yeap. It was approx. 29K.

Samsung TV looks decent (LGs have distinct yellowish tinge), but I was least impressed with their sound quality (Look, who's talking about sound quality ), so even though it was cheaper by 10K than Sony, I went for Sony combo.

wow, at 2X,XXX? its would be a great buy. even at 29,999.
do you have the specs of the 5.1 system. samsung tv should be go and hence i think the 29 inch would be a great buy no doubt. the dvd player may cost around 5k separately

Was in all the papers here during Diwali. Not sure if its still on or not, but worth asking your local dealers about it. Unless it was a Metro only promotion?!?

i dont know if this is available in India but seen one of friends audio setup where in both movies sound and audio music was simply exceptional.

He has his system connected to a Marantz Amp and connected to B&W speakers
Marantz amplifiers and Bowers & Wilkins (B&W) speakers are widely available in urban India.

I own a Marantz amplifier bought locally.

This in reply to chaxy's query in the HTS design thread (Designing a Home Theatre System).

Most A/V receivers are compatible with Bose. However, if you want specific recommendation, you have to tell me which Bose System you have in mind. Pick your Bose speakers first, then you can decide on the receiver.

Samurai,
I am planning to purchase a
Acoustimass™ 10 Series III Home Entertainment Speaker System which costs around Rs 50k. I plan to purchase a A/V receiver here in US and take it back to india. What are my choices. I have seen Onkyo TX-SR503 & Pioneer VSX-1015TX .

Infact i brought my onkyo 601 from a Bose show room in US. I think you can buy which ever you like and it should not have problem working with Bose.
Get the DVD player also from there... Also this 110 to 220 conversion has to be done for these things with around a capacity of 1000 watts.

And you may also want to make sure the DVD player has the optical o/p and buy the optical cable from there.

Both the receivers are very good, the Pioneer one is better, it has both video up-conversion and THX Select 2 certification. The downside is the speakers, I couldn't find a single positive review on this Bose model.

As gkrishn said get the optical cables and speaker cables (at least 16 guage/200ft) from USA. But the DVD player, it is better to get in India. They are quite cheap, feature rich and you get local support. All Indian DVD players are all region players as well as support all video formats, this is the biggest reason to buy in India.
