    Hey Guys,

    Got my dad a blu-ray last Christmas and now looking for a good quality but low cost sub £150 5.1 system for it, any ideas?

    Cheers

    There are two limiting factors here. Firstly your budget. When you divide up £150 by 6 amplified channels, decoder, built-in disc player, processor and 6 speakers you will see that it doesn't allow much for each component. The other limiting factor is that Phillips have only fitted a digi-coax output to your Bluray player. These aren't that common on home cinema all-in-one systems unless you go with, guess what, Phillips. You can convert digi-coax to optical using a converter but you're adding £25 to the cost when you factor in the cables and cost of the converter.

    With the budget and fact you need a digi-coax input, I would start by looking at the Phillips systems. Yes, other brands will have both digi-coax and optical inputs but I think they will all be above £150.
