    Hi all

    I was in Asda today doing some food shopping and discovered that they do a budget all-in-one system for under £60! The brand is Pacific, which I believe is Asda's own label. They also do a cheap JVC all-in-one for under £150.

    Incredible prices, but presumably, as ever, you get what you pay for? Just curious really - has anyone got either of these systems? If so, how do they perform. If you want a cheap solution, say in a child's bedroom, where it is only ever going to be played at low volume and on a small portable TV, perhaps something like this could be an option?

    Cheers for now

    Jon

    If you are putting surround sound in your childrens bedroom, could you adopt me?

    the JVC is the TH-S3 which in a small room for movies is pretty ok... it has issues bit for £150 for DVD player 5 speakers and AMP its not too terrible, Stereo would be better but the idea is there and better than cheap TV sound connectivity is very good actually PAL prgressive :ROTFL:

    I have bought cheaper systems for the kids' bedrooms and have been impressed with them. One cost about £60 with £30 off, when one of the Dixon's stores were shutting down AND it was a Matsui make but to be honest for a bedroom it is ideal, it would probably be fine in the lounge too. I also bought a speaker system for about £80 for the XBox room and that is great too. However, for the lounge I have gone for Denon 500 which I think is the best.
