    Hi all, just a quick question to anyone out there in the know.

    I've been trying to think of a solution to my lack of a 5.1 system at the moment. I can't really accomodate an AV receiver so was thinking of going either all in one or for a system like the Logitech z-5500 or z-5400.

    The problem with all in one's is that i'd like to connect up my Xbox 360 too and very few come with an optical in, which is where I got on to the Logitech systems.

    From what i've been reading the z-5500 is obviously the more powerful but doesn't look quite as wife-friendly as the z-5400 does. Plus the z-5400 has one more optical in than it's big brother (for SkyHD maybe :thumbsup: ).

    Can anyone out there recommend me any alternatives to what i've mentioned?

    Also has anyone experienced the z-5400 and can tell me if it's a good sounding system?

    Cheers, Dan

    I'm looking at the same model. I've read a few revies from customers on the web and it's rated highly - clean sound and thumping bass.

    Just type in 'Logitech Z-5400 review" in Google.

    Best deal is at Amazon for £138 with free delivery.
