Budget surround sound/receiver.....

Hi all, just wondering if anyone can recommend a half-decent 5.1 surround sound system WITHOUT a DVD player included ! I would be looking for about 2-4 audio inputs and one of these ideally would be an optical input. Not fussed about a Tuner etc or colour of amp (though black would be nice).

If it comes with speakers all the better but if all I can afford with the £150 budget is a receiver then so be it.

I would be using the surround sound for the Xbox 360 in my bedroom, so it doesnt have to be fantastic, just good enough to reproduce a decent sound for me when I'm gaming all night and day.

Any help is appreciated.....

Thanks in advance !
