OK - I know loads of people on here hate "complete packages". However this is all I'm looking for. Basics: At the moment for 5.1 Dolby/DTS/Insert other letters here I really don't know much about sound at home we have a lovely cheap system. It was bought from Tesco around 18 months ago - a Technika HTS System. It contained a lovely slim-line DVD player. An active Sub and 5 satellite speakers and I'm going to be honest and say this system has been fine. I know it is considered "trash" compared to what is available out there. However it's just me and the fiancee and it has been great for our needs. I will soon be replacing our ancient VCR with probably a Pioneer 530H DVD/HD Recorder. Seems crazy having two DVD players, so will remove the Technika DVD player from the setup too. Would have been more than happy to keep the speakers/active Sub that came with the system. Unfortunately the system seems to use a "Technika Only" connection between DVD player and active Sub. So if I stop using the DVD player I also need to replace the speakers/active sub too. Looked at something as cheap and cheerful as the LG LHA2000 which looked idea. However Richer Sounds have stopped this via mail order, local store doesn't have any and as they were selling it for a bargain price of £49 I'm reluctant to pay another High Street store nearly £150 for the same item. Bottom Line: Looking for advice on complete 5.1 setup without DVD player. Doesn't need seperate Amp - have been using cheap/budget system with active Sub for 18 months and honestly, I DO know what I'm missing but I am looking for a budget way of keeping 5.1 surround sound whilst upgrading the DVD player and VCR to the Pioneer 530H. Thanks for any suggestions.
