    Hi All,


    Im looking at investing in a 5.1 wireless packaged system for home.


    I would imagine my budget around £300 would only get low end spec?


    Can i have some recommnedations and thoughts on this.


    Thanks.

    For 5.1 audio, you can either use a standalone amplifier and speaker package or get an all-in-one system (DVD/Blu-ray player combined with an amplifier and speakers). With a budget of £300, you'd be looking at the cheaper all-in-one option.

    Some all-in-one systems are 'wireless ready', which means you can purchase a wireless kit separately from the manufacturer. Generally only the rear speakers can be made wireless.

    The kit usually comprises of a wireless receiver that you set up at the back of your room. It requires a mains power connection, and provides wired output connections to the rear speakers. Basically, it only stops you from having to run speaker wire from the rear speakers all the way to the front of your room.

    Furthermore, the audio quality can suffer quite a bit especially on cheap systems. Generally, I'd say to avoid wireless audio if possible.
