8 Channel Radio and Receiver set on a budget.

Yep, that's right.
I'm asking for your suggestions for an 8 (or more) channel Radio and corresponding receiver, all on a tight budget.

Ofcourse most will suggest the Turnigy 9X.
However, use this with a DSMX module and an Orange RX receiver, and you'll end up at about 100,- .
A Futaba T8J set will cost about 220,-
Even though this is 2x as expensive, it's a relative low difference considering you get an A brand instead of a B brand.

So what are good alternatives, and why would you suggest it?
A brand and B brand suggestions are welcome.

By the way, only discussing new hardware, no second hand.

The Taranis, 10J, 8FG, 14SG, or DX9 are all solid choices. I personally prefer the Taranis and it is the cheapest. The 9X is popular on a budget, but I don't like the design. I would recommend the Taranis.
