Small bedroom setup help - 2.1?



As much as I'd like to fork out on a 5.1 setup, space doesn't allow room for this. So I'm looking into getting a 2.1 surround system and have spent a good deal of time looking to find a system many people agree on!

I'm currently running a Samsung LCD LE20S51BP TV, with Sky Plus and an old Toshiba DVD player, which can be forfeited for a new player with upscaling preferably. I've also got a Wii but that's not really that important. I'm really just after a system for movies and SKY.

I've looked at a few all in a box examples such as the Philips HTS6600 (doesn't have an optical input/output) or a few of the Samsung models (which are frowned upon), but can't seem to find anything that people agree on.

My budget is about £350 - £400. Like I said I don't have the space or cash to get something out of this world. Something that gives a good performance, can link with SKY + and isn't going to be out of date any time soon would be ideal! With or without DVD player, I'm not fussed.

Any tips please? Thanks.

Hi mate,

Why don't you consider an amp & speaker package - like a Yamaha. Even if you purchase 5.1 speaker system, it maybe possible not to connect the rear speakers, but have them available whenever you want a 5.1 system.

Hope this has helped :thumbsup:
