It is interesting to me that when I tried to look those two systems up that I ended up on UK sites. That is unusual. Makes me wonder if these models are primarily for Europe and/or UK (in which case shipping could get expensive if you're in the US). The prices in the UK are over £ 300, which does exceed your upper price limit.The first thing to look for, IMO, is the power rating of the speakers and of your amp/receiver. If you have a 100 W/channel amp, and these speakers are only rated to 60 W, you'll probably be watching your tweeters fly out the window pretty quickly. :-)I did not find the speaker ratings quickly. I also have no experience with LG speakers, so can't comment on them in general either. I tend not to be a fan of these sorts of speaker "systems" because all the ones I've ever heard are too bright. But that's just personal preference. To get 5.1 on the budget you specify you probably don't have a lot of choice about that.I would probably favor Infinity or Boston Acoustics. Both good brand speakers, in general.Oh...and besides the power, be sure the impedance matches. If your stereo drives out so-many watts at 8 ohms then you want the speakers to be 8 ohms too. Most are, but some are 6 or even 4 ohms (last I knew). My receiver drives out 130W/channel at 8 ohms. All of my speakers can handle that, with some extra headroom since the 130W number is RMS (root-mean-square; sort of an average) but the peaks can be higher.1poorguy
