I havnt played my xbox in a while actually, recently ive been playing old HD DVDs like Planet Earth! Still its nice to pick up a controller now and again, makes a change from playing at a desk. Love me some couch co op!

Seems like a good 2 years head for the Xbox 360 as far as games go, seems like i will be getting some use out of this dust magnet after all.

I spy with my little eye some B&W 600 series speakers.

Are those yours? And if they are, did you happen to get a chance to compare them to the Paradigm Monitor Series (looking at the 11's for mains). I'm also considering the Polk RTi A9's for when it's time to get a little more serious and go upper mid-fi. (Right now I have Polk TSi series all the way around. 300's front, CS10 center, and 200's rear)

I have the Paradigm Cinema series in my bedroom and I want to upgrade to Atoms or Mini Monitors but I kinda want to try something new at the same time.

Those are nice bookshelf speakers you posted. If i had the money i would get an Onkyo cinema set something around £300. Onkyo receiver and satellite speakers are fucking boss.

Might as well buy one of those cheap xclamp kits you get on ebay when i tear my mates 360 apart. Saves buying individual washers and other stuff.

Actually, Onkyo speakers are kinda crappy. lol. But, they are better than any Logitech offering.

SRS? LOL where i live they are considered high end. Guess everyone i ever discussed it with must be an idiot then. I know its not really on topic but what would be a better alternative for talkings sake. I was told they made some of the best all in one cinema kits without buying individual speakers.

The logitech x540s arnt great but i only paid £40 so they bloody well are for that price! If i went stereo 2.0 id get better speakers for the price though.

Onkyo is the best for entry level all-in-one home theaters in a box, but their speakers aren't considered good. They are just average at best. They are better than what you get from Samsung, LG, etc., etc. HTIB kits, but that doesn't say much.

Now, if you are looking at Onkyo's upper level HTIB kits ($1000 and up), you can do much better buying separate pieces.

Keep in mind that Onkyo isn't really a speaker maker, they are primarily a receiver/amp maker.

Granted, you won't find anything better for the 300 you are referring to, especially for an entire setup, but a decent pair of speakers alone will cost that much.

Short version = by all means, get the £300 HTIB setup. Better than anything else in that price range, and upgradeable as you go. Those speakers just aren't considered good by audiophiles. That stage will come later for you. lol.

Forza 4 is worth getting for the Top Gear Test Track alone.
As for the racing wheel I bet it will cost a fortune. And if I ever get a (decent) wheel setup, it has to have a clutch pedal and a realistic stick, not those up and down motion ones. Eh I guess I'd have to build my own racing seat. Until that, controller for me. I actually suck at driving with a wheel in video games. Which is kind of strange since in real life I'm a godlike driver.
The top gear test track is on Gran Tourismo 5 already.
As for racing wheel i think Logitech might make a racing wheel for Forza 4 aswell,they did make one specifically for PS3 with the Driving Force GT.

I have set of the Z-4 Logitech and their excellent.

LOL Im no audiophile couldn't afford to be, i like good sound but on a budget. Well i guess it is a good cinema kit for the price then which is exactly what i was being told. Obviously im not talking about into the thousands of pounds that is high end.
