    I want to have a home cinema set-up, but also have surround sound for my xbox 360....so I figured that I would just buy the speakers for the 360.

    However I need some help. I have a samsung 32M61 but would like the ability to use two of the speakers at least for normal TV watching, i.e. NTL digitial, as I feel the internal speakers on the TV are good but would like better sound hence use two speakers (L/R) from the 5:1 set-up......

    Also in the future I may buy the Samsung DVD 950 player and connect through HDMI....

    So what are the best options to have this set-up, i.e. the 360, TV (with two speakers) and samsund DVD player? Should I get an amplifier...don't know much about these

    Another scenario, if I was to only get the suround sound speakers for the 360 now do I need to get ones that are plugged to a powers source, i.e. a wall socket?

    You can pick up amps/receivers from a couple of hundred quid - you really need to decide what you're budget is.
