    To compliment my Sony 32LS60 i'm looking round for a full 5.1 surround package.

    Now the only ones i've seen so far come with the dvd and amp in one box. This is no good for me as i've already got my Toshiba 210 dvd player.

    Can anyone suggest an amp/speaker package?

    The requirements are as follows.

    As small a set of speakers as possible, also silver in colour. (i really like some silver sony's i saw which had chrome edgings, i will have to get the model)

    My dvd player has digital out so digital in on the amp is required.

    The room is 14foot sq.

    I dont want to spend a fortune!! (who does??!)

    Anyone got any ideas? or websites i can look on?

    Thanks for your help

    Mick

    What you seem to be after is an all-in-one package, try looking in your local Dixons or Currys or similar as they sell these sorts of packages there (including one's without DVD players), they generally range from £300 - £600. They're OK for movies, the main area they'll let you down is in the music department, and buying separates will give you much better quality sound overall, although separates are more expensive. Otherwise these speaker/receiver all-in-one packages are fine, I have one and I'm quite happy with it.


    Errr.....you'd be suprised if you met some of the people on these forums....:rolleyes: :D
