    Hi

    At the moment I have a Boston Accoustics BA7500 4.1 setup hooked up to my Hercules Game Theatre XP.

    Could someone reccommend me a decent speaker setup? Will I need a new soundcard or is the Game Theatre still good?

    The new setup must be 5.1 and can work thru most types of connection (the GT is well equipped). I was looking at spending around £300, but I can go higher if something really really good is available.

    It must be good for PC gaming, TV, music, and film watching.

    What does everyone recommend? Should I get a new soundcard at the same time?

    Thanks!

    There have been a few positive comments on the forum about the P5 speakers

    These got a really good review in a recent What Hi-fi S & V issue.

    Thinking of getting them to use solely with my DVD player until funds allow for more lavish purchases! ;)

    Videologic ZXR-750

    They also do a 5.1 version - ZXR-550.

    Both are very reasonably priced as well. Can get the 550 for around £50 and the 750 for £70ish! Can't be bad.

    Cheers,

    Mark.

    Thanks for the advice so far everyone!!

    Are Canton CD1 worth looking at? How do they compare to the others?

    Thanks!
