    yeah 3.5k means u can squize a 5.1 Creative.. but if Style is a major concern then u may think of the Intex model available here at Kolkata at the price of 2.9k... This model has a cooool Wooden look.. sound isnt that bad either.... how ever not good as Creative... but the major con is the Post sells service of Intex... :(

    creative SBS 5.1 560/580 seemed pretty nice to me and the price is also appealing.....well she has a small square room and needs the setup for watching DVD movies mostly so I guess this system shud be good enough.

    Well, "F n D 640L" wats that?

    well as per looks go Intex Wooden Looks was better in that 3.5k range.. but i have pointed na.. Intex is no where near to Creative while in Quality and Intex has a issue with post sales service...

    I will also suggest creative inspire SBS 5.1..it will come for 2600 in delhi..rest money u can use 2 buy a sound card.I will suggest u creative blaster which will cm for 1200/- in delhi.
    Never choose 4.1,it wont give a better surround effect.

    Price varies a lot depending upon the PMPO watts. It starts from few thousands to as high as Rs.17000/-

    You can also go for Altec Lansing. The model 151i and 251i should fall within your budget. The 251i is a good set and IMO better than the Creative models in that range.
