    Looking for a system for my parents. Nothing fancy, just a cheap amp and some speakers. Something that can be connected to Sky HD and a DVD player.

    Based in SW London - doesn't need original box etc etc!

    Thanks,

    Price and currency: £50
    Location: London

    I have a old Sony Amy that could be connected to your parents kit via optical audio cable so perfect for both sky HD and a dvd player.....its fully boxed with all original accessories inc remote and the amp is in perfect condition.

    Id value the amp at £50 but as its quite heavy (as all amps are) its going to be a bit to ship..so let me know if you are interested as ill need to get into the lot tot take it out of its box and get photos taken but its basically perfect for what you are looking for and then you just need some cheap speakers which unfortunately I don't have

    Definitely interested in this. Few questions which I hope you could help with:

    1. Will the fact that it has no HDMI affect the picture quality of Sky?
    2. Will it work with most speaker sets?

    It won't affect hdmi picture signal at all as the optical out from the sky box will only be used for sound. And the hdmi will become picture only. You Will just mute the tv when using the amp.

    It will also work with ANY speaker set. It has standard fittings on the back of the amp
