hello guys,I have been using Logitech Z506 5.1 speakers for 2 years now and I loved them all this time,but lately I have noticed a lot of distortion especially in classic/instrumental music.I decided its time to upgrade to something more capable for music,but I am also a gamer and I watch movies so a surround sound is a must.I have looked around in the net and found those 2 setups,which one do you think will have better,higher quality and in general are there any sound quality differences between large bookshelfs on stand vs home cinema all in one systems?these are the ones I chose:
this: http://www.technopolis.bg/b2c/catalog/productdetailFromOutside.do?productguid=35789&scenario=&productarea=P11090502&detailScenario=Domashno-kino-BLU-RAY-PIONEER-BCS-424-(XVBD422%20SBD422)
or this:http://www.emag.bg/sistema-pasivni-tonkoloni-akai-mahagon-ss006a-305/pd/E2NCDBBBM/ and also http://www.technomarket.bg/products/09128167/yamaha-rx-v375-black for the second system


The first one is PIONEER BCS-424 ,the second one is AKAI SS006A-305+YAMAHA RX-V375 BLACK receiver

Ok, so the only one on these two sites that I can find that seems decent is the JAMO S-606 HCS 3 . But it is quite an old model. Otherwise, everything is quite a bit more expensive. When I was in Croatia I faced the same problems, lack of choice whenever I wanted to buy something, and it was usually more expensive, so we went to Austria to get some stuff. Doing something like this could be worth it, I mean going to a country near you where you can find audio equipment at better pirces. Oh and just get 375 receiver, it's cheaper.

What's your budget? I'm going to look around these sites and tell you what I can find, hopefully I can navigate around the website with the little cyrillic I can read.

you don't have to use these sites :) I can find most products locally.I can spent between 400$-800$,im aiming for the best sound quality per dollar thing,don't wanna pay twice the price for something that won't even make a difference.Another question,how much of an upgrade will they be over my z506s?:) thanks for quick reply!

I can't find any stands from sites from my country and buying from ebay would have some insane tax.So im looking for 5.1 surround sound floor standing speakers+receiver or a home cinema bundle.

I really like those! but 550$+300$ receiver=850$ thats a bit over my budget

Seems like I can't find anything available locally(I'd like to hear them first too )
If you have the time,could you recommend me anything from :
http://www.technopolis.bg/b2c/cat/0/DEBA53849E8CA4F1A90A002481B479E9/DEBA53C7BFFB04F1A90A002481B479E9/DEBA5518D18987F1A90A002481B479E9
and
http://www.technomarket.bg/browse/32
please keep in mind the receiver is around 300$(the YAMAHA RX-V375) so that would leave 300-400$ for the speakers
I tried it myself but its always something missing ,a center,a sub with the same brand/series,is it ok to mix differnt brands when choosing separates?

btw,the price listed in these sites is in *levs* currency,basically 100$=150levs :)

oh and to ease things up,you can just copy the adresses into http://translate.google.com/ and translate to english

Have a look at the V377 receiver, it's the new version and can be found for cheaper. I'll look around those websites and tell you what I can find.
Edit: Ohh Technomarket, reminds me of Croatia. ^^
