To be honest, I'd look at getting a stereo pair ex demo, or from Flea-Bay, and saving up to add to them later. At £20/speaker for surround, you're not going to get a lot I'd have thought.

Well I just bought a used Videologic Digitheatre DTS speaker system with decoder from a fellow forumite for the princely sum of £65. This is being used with a Netgem Freeview box and a £30 Alba dvd player in my shared house's living room and to be fair it does a good job... Both are connected via optical and coaxial connections. Well, my housemates are impressed!

There is a more basic version without DTS which might be easier to find on Fleabay (hint)

Hi there,

I'm looking for speakers / home cinema for my new LCD but have never had separate speakers before.

Do I need to buy an amplifier or anything else, or will a home cinema system / speakers plug straight into the TV or DVD player?

And if so, it starts to get expensive - how good does the amplifier need to be?

Cheers,

Marco

Go to Richer Sounds and ask what they have in your price range, or consider the second hand options.

if u want the lot, as in 5.1 sound for that price, best to go PC......and i dont mean politically correct...lol.......pop in to a PC World or check on Amazon etc for either Creative or Logitech or Altec Lansing........£100 can buy a fairly loud and bangy PC speaker system, ok it wont have the last word in fidelity, but then you are spending the last word in money so you cant expect more.....the systems will be self power (usually active amp in the subwoofer that powers all the little surround speakers)

other option, if you have a surround amp already is to get 3 pairs of Mission speakers from Richer Sounds or Hyper-Fi or wherever sells them now, they will be the older models, but still brand new, usually £50 a pair.......ok so it means spending £150 and u dont have a subwoofer, but it gives you 5.0 surround (or 6.0 if ur amp does it, or if not gives you a spare speaker in case one breaks in the future..lol) and u can buy a sub at a later date.......i took 3 years putting together my surround system.....then another 2 years upgrading it...lol

You don't say how many, 2, 4 or 5.
Or what type.

But how about these???

4x 100 W floorstanders for £100, got to be right :thumbsup:
And they were doing a ridiculously cheap Eltax centre for a tenner ( I bought 3 as temps) so you have 5 for £110. You could live without the Sub too :thumbsup:

No amp of course, but you never mentioned that either :)

Up your budget to £1222202020202020 or so.

but on a more helpful note, could you not spread your purchases over time? and therefore end up with a better system for it?

That cheap centre is pretty good - Eltax Symphony IIRC which I paid £70 for 5(ish) years back and was using until last month. Eltax make decent budget speakers and that set up would be way better than an 'in a box' kit from an electronics shed.
