    Hi,

    I'm looking to upgrade my fathers sound system for him. He only has a budget of around £200.

    There is an existing dvd player and the television can decode dolby digital and DT5 5.1. Would it be cheaper and better to get an old prologic receiver and a cheap speaker setup or just get a new all-in-one system?

    Any advice guys?

    You could try an all in one without a DVD,

    or one with a decoder

    Just an idea, not really a recomendation of the above products.

    I'm guessing that the decoding is done by the DVD player, in which case you'll need a decoder for Prologic or else the speakers would only be used durning DVD viewing.

    You can also pick up the yamaha 800 decoder that does DD, DTS and DPL for around £100.
