    Hi Guys,

    looking for some advice. I have the chance of getting a Videologic Digitheatre DTS system for <£50 and would like to know if this would be a good buy based on the following:

    - I am a home cinema newbie, just bought my first dvd player

    - for use in a small lounge, 15ftx10ft

    - in a semi detached house so don't want to annoy the neighbours to much

    - connected to a Toshiba SD240 DVD

    - I am only likely to be buying a few DVDs (<4) a year

    Any info gratefully received.

    Kenneth.

    buy it mate, know i would buy another one if only i could find one cheap enough... i have had one for about 3 years, and find it to be a great system. only problem mine has developed a bit of a buzz from the power supply on the sub (anyone know what it could be) i last week looked to upgrading to seperates. i telephoned a local hi-fi specialist told him what i had, and in his own words you'll have to spend a lot more than the £350+ that i had paid to equal the digitheatre dts system main reason people don't get it is purely imo the asthetics (it Ain't pretty).incidently my step son who bought quite an expensive sony system some while ago still gets pee'd off when he hears mine as he reckons he just cant match the quality. i think you will be delighted with it. buy buy buy......

    all the best..........Splice :thumbsup:

    I have had the same sytem for a similar amount of time to Splice and again thoroughly recommend it, especially for £50.00! I paid £399.99 originally and was very happy with that, so you should be well impressed (my room is about 10x10 by the way, and it easily fills that with sound).

    DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'll second the above comments too, paid £310 for mine 2 years ago and have not been able to fault it.

    As yet, I haven't dare to crank it up any more than half-way (I live in an end of terrace and I actually like my neighbours too much)

    You won't regret buying one - and you'd be mad not to at that price.

    Mine developed the same buzzing noise, i got that hacked off with it in the end i ended up breaking up the subwoofer, and dismantling the internals :clap: Now i'm (temporarily) using the Videologic crossfires i also have as a 4.1 solution, but using the Digitheatre sub as its a bit better than the crossfire for music! (....still need to find a use for the other 4 satellites and the crossfire sub i have in the attic.....)

    And to OP, deffo buy it, cheapest i've seen is £99 for the refurbs that occasionally show up here Morgan Computers

    Next time (If) they appear i'll probably get another.....
