Surround Sound for TV, PS3 and PC

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm moving into an apartment with my wife in a few months. We've got a 32" LED Samsung TV as our main television and a PS3 to go with it. Due to the size of the apartment, I have to get rid of my computer desk so I'll have to hook the PC up to the TV as well.

So basically my PC, PS3 and Cable channels will all be running through my one TV. My question is, is there a surround sound system that can utilize all those things at the same time? I don't want to have to switch wires constantly. I also don't wanna pay out the rear for this. Just curious as to what systems would work and what cables would be needed.

If you need anymore info, just let me know.

Well I guess my question is, can I just get anything from anywhere and All components would work? And which cables? HDMI? AUX? Optical?

What?

Anyway, at a $300 budget, an HTIB like the onkyo Psykhotic linked would be fine.



Obviously the cables you need will be the cables you don't have.

If you can't find a receiver at that price range that will let you hook everything into it, you can get an optical splitter, that just lets you put 3 or 4 in and 1 out with a switch on it. They cost around 15$ or so.
