    Default Surround sound system

    Going shopping soon for something like this to connect the PS3 up to.

    Optical connection, 5.1 decoder and an active Sub.with 5 speakers.

    It's about double what I want to pay as it's only going to be for a bedroom. I could get a proper amp and a set of speakers for not much more.

    Anybody any ideas on an altenative?

    i would go for the amp and proper speakers, will eat a system any day in my view.

    You could get a starter set up for not much more than that from somewhere like richer sounds.

    ALso, try looking in local classifieds for someone moving on to thx or something like that and dropping their perfectly useable surround amp.

    I might be wrong here but i dont think the ps3 sends 5.1 down optical connections. Mine is connected via HDMI into the tv then from the tv to the 5.1 surround system. HDMI can send 8.1 but didn't think optical had this capability

    That's what I was thinking at first.

    Hmm now I'm tempted to order that one. It does seem to get good reviews.

    It does send 5.1 down an optical cable matey. We've been using it all over Christmas on the system we have in the lounge.

    Thanks for the replies fellas.
