    It's £80 more than you're looking to spend but:

    Rotel RA04

    You don't get a CD player, and I wouldn't look to 'skimp out' on the CD player either. You don't get a digital input, simply because an amplifier is an amplifier, not a digital to analogue converter (except for some cheap el-crappo budget systems which are more about features than performance). You don't get a remote control, and it's not remote controllable, but it sounds fantastic, and that's what it's all about.

    I know it's more than you were willing to spend, but those speakers in particular perform way above their price bracket.

    EDIT: forgot to mention, <u>do not</u> wall mount speakers - that's one way of completely wrecking 1) the cabinets and 2) the sound. Always look to have them on a good solid surface with something to absorb the vibrations beneath them (I use small cork tiles).
