    I have a JVC Widescreen TV and am not impressed with the sound quality from the in built speakers. I am thinking of purchasing a stereo amp with 2 speakers to improve the sound, as I haven't really the right room for a full surround sound system. Does anyone know of a good system with 2 speakers no more than £200

    Cheers

    Well, it depends what your goal is really.

    If you just want to get a better sound than you'd get from the TV speakers then pretty much any separates amp and speakers will do the job - including the 20 year old kit some people virtually throw away these days.

    On the other hand, I suspect once you get decent stereo sound you'll like it and want to get surround sound, or at the least a centre speaker as well.

    My advice for what it's worth would be to take a look in your local Richer Sounds, or on their website and get a feel for what's available - I think you'll be pleasantly surprised at what you can get for £200 that will also give you plenty of upgrade potential.

    regards

    A pair of Mission m73s (~£100) and a suitable ~£100 integrated amp (perhaps look at something second hand) would be a really nice upgrade from typical TV speakers. If you spent slightly more on a quality amplifier you could keep using it for 2-channel duties if you ever decide to go for a full, receiver-based 5.1/6.1 setup.
