This is a bit over budget, but would give you a full 5.1 system

Onkyo HTS3305 Black | 5.1 Package System with HDMI inc. Speakers exc. DVD player | Richer Sounds

This is the same price but just a 2.1 system

Onkyo HTX22HDX Black | 2.1 Digital Surround System | Richer Sounds

This is the older verion of the above. A few people had issues with this, so I'd do a search for more information.

Onkyo HTX-22HD Black | 2.1 Digital Surround System | Richer Sounds

For about a £100 you can add a three speaker set to the above two systems to make it 5.1
