Well u could look into LOGITECH Z-5300, it comes within ur budget but the power rating is 280 watt RMS. Cost around 13-14K approx (check with ur local dealer).

Another option could be Creatiive MegaWorks 550 THX (500 watt RMS) but costlier.

One of my friend has the LOGITECH Z_5500 DIGITAL speaker system and it cost him around 20-21K [can't remember the exact amount].

I think that in order to buy a 500 watt RMS speakers u must increase ur budget. I maybe wrong.
See these model from SAMSUNG:
1> http://www.samsung.com/in/products/hometheater/hometheater/ht_tp33.asp [500 watt RMS]

2> http://www.samsung.com/in/products/hometheater/hometheater/ht_p1200.asp [800 watt RMS]

OR

U can go for the Creative Megaworks 550 THX costs around 19K. Don't know the current market price.

I think both are good. I have used the SAMSUNG system At my uncle's place and they are really good. Can't say about SONY.

But remember one think that sound/music is indivisual perception. Meaning what sounds good to me, you may not like it.

So if u are buying any of the system mentioned above, go to the respective shop and hear the demo urself and then decide which one u want to buy.

See most these high end speakers have just slight advantage/disadvantage over other regarding performance. So thumb rule regarding buying speakers, first listen then buy.

After all u will be using it so ur decision should be final.

The Logitech Z5500-Digital THX is much much better than that sony system.

I mean, they have 5 x145 W satellite speakers and only 142W for the sub. Are they crazy? Compared to that the Logitech has 188 watts of output on the subwoofer itself, the 10 inch monster can output some kickazz bass.

The output on the sony might be what they call BURST RMS. Whereas the Logitech has 505 watts of STEADY RMS. That is what the logitech customer support told me once.

check out the reviews on amazon.com for the logitech set.

Btw, I can personally speak about the Z5500 as I do have that system. Rocks the place...

@ goobimama
First of all thnx for ur reply
As u said tht its BURST RMS ie PEAK RMS.
For ur information its ACTUAL RMS not the PEAK RMS....
ALSO theres no problem with Logiteck...
IT ROCKS SO AS ITS PRIZE ROCK.....
IF say i was having 25000 rs I would had definitely gone for LOGITECK cuz it looks like aishwarya considering sony as Kajol....
BUT on the other hand KAJOL (SONY) had more hit blockbusters than Aishwarya(LOGITECK)

I hope u wont mind of being FILMY here...
But i hope u got hte point..
ANYWAY THNXS for being supportive

@john_the_ultimate
THNX for ur idea. I got the point wht u said...
I do believe tht theres slight adv/dis adv over one or other...
But just see this one is having 500watt RMS other is having 850 WATT RMS...
Dont u Think its huge difference....


@ FOR ALL OF THEM WHO REPLIED TO THIS POST

WHT D HELL "THX certified means"

Also considering SONY DZ100 and DZ120K
DZ100 has Passive sub woofer also Micro satellite 1 way bass reflex...
while 120K has active subwoofer n nothing is mentioned about bass reflex

PLEASE tell me abt these things
CUZ both r prized at same amount n one is having 500 watt Rms while later is having 850 RMS....

THX is the seal of approval of theatre quality sound. It was set up some time back by George Lucas, the director of The Star Wars. He wanted to make sure that his movies sound just the way he intended them to sound. So the THX group/committee was set up. Very

THX is accepted worldwide as quality sound. The fullform of THX, which does not make much sense, is Tomlinson Holmans eXperiment.

Also, maybe Burst RMS is the same as Peak RMS. Not sure.

But I will insist that considering the power to the satellites with relation to the underpowered sub, the sound will be very unbalanced.

Aishwarya is new. Kajol is the past. (although, I heard Kajol is having a comeback?)

Got some heavy budget?? hmmmm,
then look out for these
Bose 5.1 AM15,H.E.A.T. LPV 1500W,LS-V955 speakers from ONKYO,yamaha YHT-160,TSS-1,B&W Series 300 Compact 5.1 speakers and B&W MT20 and MT30 speakers package.

Though i would personally suggest to go for Altec Lansing 641, if you want to go for 4.1 and Mega works 5.1THX 550 for 5.1 or choose from Artis X5.1!

Also look out for logitech Z series, they are good, though lacks the sound quality.

it actually doesn't matter at all,when u are having a LFE,with 5.1 system. Though you can connect it to your amp to get even more boom boom.
Why dont you go for powered subwoofers?
Choose their characteristics from these:-
Front firing,down firing or using ports like passive radiators!
