I'm thinking of buying an LG FA-P3000 5.1 speaker kit for £150, as it appears to be spoken of in reverent tones amongst the budget crowd. I'm sure it's considered very rudimentary by audiophile standards, but I'm not particularly willing to spend more money - partly due to financial constraints (I also have to buy a half-decent TV at some point as well), partly because I already have a considerably more valuable stereo setup in this room, but mainly for the reason that's the basis of this post. Unfortunately, a certain member of my household who shall remain nameless is slightly averse to external noise (biggest understatement ever). As a result, I have to do almost all my film watching through headphones, which I'm not entirely keen on even though they're pretty good. I will be able to crank the speakers up on occasion, and I'll probably also take them downstairs every now and then (stupid question of secondary importance - is it as compact and light as it looks?), but most of the time they'll have to be kept reasonably quiet. So what does this kit, or anything comparable for that matter, sound like at moderate listening levels? I can and sometimes do use my hi-fi (which was purchased many months before said resident moved back home), but I find it very difficult to make out dialogue without raising the volume far enough to generally cause irritation, though admittedly it isn't helped by the fact that the speakers are against a wall perpendicular to my TV. I'm not realistically expecting it to sound particularly mind-blowing, and I'll keep the sub well down most of the time assuming it has independent controls, I just want clearly audible dialogue and preferably a convincing surround effect. Any thoughts - and perhaps even some suggestions on minimising sound leakages across certain frequencies - would be greatly appreciated.
