RE: help!

You say that you want a "sound system". Do you mean by that a system whose purpose is to play CDs, audio streams, maybe LPs? Or do you mean a sound system to play movie soundtracks coupled with a screen? Do you want to play multichannel audio recordings, if so from what source?

You have thought about speakers and a receiver ( why a receiver, are you interested in radio or are you using the term to describe a multi channel processor/amp?) but have not so far let us know what entertainment sources you want to use. You have, however, let us know your musical tastes which initially imply to me that you may really want a stereo system and not a 5.1 multichannel one.

If you can give us better steer on these issues then we can let you know what hardware you may need. With a very limited budget, broadly speaking, the simpler you can make it (i.e. fewer features) then the better quality equipment you may be able to afford.

What size of room is it to go in?

Do you want new equipment or are you happy to buy used?
