Anytime. PM me if you ever want advice on particular receivers to look at. If you go used and are ok with a 2.1 system instead of surround you would be surprised how cheap you can get a quality amp for.

Do they have thrift stores, which are essentially second hand shops but non-profit, as in the US the for profit second hand shops have to be called a consignment shops.

I have found amazing speakers in thrift stores, I bought a pair of 1990 polk audio M4.6 speakers for $10. They are some of the cleanest sounding speakers I have ever owned and literally the best sound stage of any pair I have owned. I've bought a sub for $12, PSB, Cerwin-Vega, Boston, Creative Soundworks, and others for no more than $30 for the pair.

As previously said, save up for an entry level AV receiver. It will cost you more than a set of computer speakers, but you will likely have a decent AV receiver for 5-10 years+

Some good brands for entry level are Onkyo and Sony (Sony has its haters though)
You can then upgrade your system as you need, say you buy two speakers and a sub.. in a couple of years you might want 5.1 or 7.1, and you have that option to upgrade as you wish.

This Sony can be had for £100
