5.1 On a £400 Budget

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My dad would like a home theatre style thing in the living room.
He was looking at sets by LG.

But I told him I'll ask on OCN, if it would be possible to build a 5.1 setup (speakers, receiver etc.) for £400.
So, is it possible?

The only thing he wants, is for it to be 5.1, and either take input through HDMI, or optical out.

Thanks.

Hey there.
Have a look at this link and see what you think to the surround systems on here.
I find that this review based website is extremely good. I bought my pc surround system because of their review and i am not dissapointed. I've used thier reviews when finding things for my friends aswell and i've never had any complaints

hope this helps dude

P.s I'm on the verge of buying the onkyo system at the top of the list but just gota redo my front room 1st lol

Thanks .

So for this budget, its best just to buy a premade/prebuilt set? Instead of buying everything separately (speakers, receiver etc.)?
