Hi. I'm buying a home cinema system and I need some help please. Any advice is greatly appreciated! 1) Separate or all-in-one? First of all, what's the advantage of getting separate speakers and amp? Do you need it for good sound quality, or is there some practical reason? My computer speakers have the amplifier built in and I'm very happy with them. 2) Dolby Digital I will want to run Dolby Digital 5.1 on my speakers. Is this standard or do I have to specifically look for ones that support this? 3) Presets I would sometimes like to be able to turn down the amount of surround and LFE, for example when I'm not really watching the TV and want to talk. And sometimes I may want to just listen to music. So it would be nice to have 'presets', or even simply just a control for the amount of surround. Do most units have these kind of controls? 4) Remote Also, I'd like a remote control so I can do it all from the chair. This is a standard feature, right? 5) Recommendations? Does anyone just have a recommendation for a really great sound system (either separate or all-in-one)? I'm looking to spend a few hundred quid on this Maybe £300-£400ish, maybe more. What will that get me? I don't have money to burn but sound quality really matters to me. 6) Must beat my computer speakers And finally, I need to know what are the key specifications to look for in a speaker system? My only point of reference is my computer speakers I definitely want something that sounds as good as (or better than) them, but I don't know what makes them good. The specs are: Labtec ATX 5820. 70 Watt RMS (44-watt subwoofer + two 13-Watt satellite speakers).5 amplifiers. 7 speaker drivers. Electronically crossed-over D'apolito configuration. Progressive suspension subwoofer with laminar flow bass port Media Included Qty: 25 - 20000 Hz. Connectivity Technology: Wired. So what makes them good? Are they good? The most important thing to me is that they can make the floor shake. I can really feel the bass, which I think will be important for home cinema. But by all means correct me if I'm wrong. Any and all advice is appreciated. Sorry to sound so lame. I am, believe it or not, an expert in certain forums. Just not this one!
