Decent 2.1 or 5.1 system for TV?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone

Currently I am using my pc speakers (a set of Logitech Z4's) on my downstairs TV when we want to watch a film as the sound makes such a difference (could not go back to TV speakers)

However I do not want to keep moving the speakers about, also the speakers while sounding great on the TV have to be controlled using the included speaker controller which is wired (therefore I have to get out of my seat every time I want to change the volume).

As a result I am looking for a 2.1 (5.1 would be great but I do not think I can get a decent set for my price range) system that ideally has a digital auto input (I watch blu-rays on the PS3) and allows control through the tv's volume control (or has a separate remote, I don't mind). As long as speaker quality matches my Z4's I do not mind as they sound great to me and go nice and loud (i'm no audiophile tongue.gif).

Budget is around £100 (so yes 5.1 way out of my range unless second hand). Is an adjustable figure so don't mind suggestions slightly over!


Thank-you for any help given its much appreciated.

Curtis

For that price point you may even be better served with a sound bar. Just not really anything in that price range that I can think of.
