This may seem like a bit of a strange compassion. Im after a home cinema in a box, and these seem to be the main contenders for my current situation, literally trying to fit a home cinema in a box! my place is limited for space and i also have a girlfriend to please who hates anything that doesn’t "Blend in". large speaker stands are a big no no.
I recently (about 8 months ago) bought a Samsung LE40M86BD at a real steal for just under £800 an am looking for a sound system to go with it. I’m planning on spending about £500 and am interested in the 2 systems mentioned above. DAVIS10CE Vs HTS8100.
As well as getting a closer to a cinema experience, I want to be able to hear every detail without having to turn the volume right up.

DAVIS10CE: 1080i upscailing, 5.1 surround sound Vs HTS8100: 1080p upscailing, 2.1, Ambisound

Which will offer the best overall quality, sounding great as well as look sharp?

Problems if the HTS8100 isn’t wall mounted?

Are the DAVIS 10’s speaker wall mountable?(was thinking of mounting the 2 rear speaker on either side just above a sofa)

Anything else i could consider?

Any help that you can offer would be great.

p.s. i am also considering getting a hd drive for my 360, anything i should know about using either of these systems with it?

Recently bought the Sony DAV IS system to go with my Panasonic TH-37PX70 TV and am well pleased with it. What Hi Fi? highly recommended it and I have not been disappointed. However if you're going to install it in a large room it could possibly struggle a bit. My TV room is about 12' square and the system gives me all the power I need. You need to crank the volume up to about 60 (out of 80) but unless you're hard of hearing that should be good enough. The dinky little speakers come with wall brackets and are quite easy to attach and then wall mount. Don't be put off by the speaker size - they really pack a punch! The sub-woofer requires a bit of space as it's slightly on the large side, as it distrbutes quite a bit of the mid-range sound. I bought mine from Lasky's at around £480.00. I don't think you'll be disappointed with it.

Hope this helps.

Gaspin.

Thank You! and that helps alot Gaspin.
Would love to hear form anyone with experience with Philips HTS8100 or indeed any all in one single speakers system.
One more thing about the Sony, how loud does it need to be to hear every detail, I mean if you can hear it perfect from your seat how does it sound in the room next door. thinking about my neighbours as well as my child how sleeps next door.
Thanks again

No experience with the Philips but I picked up the Sony for £369.99 delivered from Empire Direct (they've increased the price to £379.99 since last week though).

As for volume levels, we've had it turned up quite loud during the day and it sounds great. However, we also have to turn it down in the evening (baby in cot directly above the position of the woofer) but it's still crystal clear. We have TV from Sky+ and DVDs with full 5.1 Dolby Digital and both sound.
