Can these be used with a TV/PS3? I know it's a stupid question but can't find too much about them online.
#3
I've used them with my TV, but I don't think that enables the 5.1 Surround.

With regards to the PC, they're very easy to setup. You have a single wire branching into about 4/5 connectors, all different colours, which you plug into the corresponding colour hole on your computer (Either on Motherboard or SoundCard if you have one).

They're not recent speakers, but they are highly rated as the reviews show. (The ones remaining!).
#4
I know absolutely nothing about all this but I like the idea of having some cheap speakers so when I'm on the PS3 the sound is everywhere. What do you mean that it doesn't enable the 5.1 surround with a tv? I'm very interested if it works with my tv as I found reviews on amazon(even if they were 7 years old) saying they're very good.
#5
Well, I had just the black cable connected to the headphone socket on the TV (You have to have one of these), and the sound came out of all speakers, but you don't get the 'true' 5.1 surround. It just literally comes out equally of all 5 speakers at once.

If you want true 5.1 you need optical like these:

Obviously not expecting top of the range, but it's not tinny or anything. They just don't split up the sound for different effects?
#7
They're not tinny no, and yes that's right, its basically just like having 5 speakers instead of 3 (or 2 if you're usually without the subwoofer. I've just read that with some TVs the sound only comes out of the subwoofer, and front 2 speakers, unless you get a headphone splitter, so it's a bit risky.

I guess that's why they're PC speakers primarily!
#8
Ok then, I think I'm going to have to leave them then if they're not guaranteed to work properly on my tv. Thanks for all the help, good luck with the sale. I might get those £60 ones. :)

These can work on pretty much any tv but the issue is the output on the tv.

When I had a tv with a single scart socket I put a scart adaptor in and set it to output via a red and white phono to headphone jack cable into the speakers(and I had exact same ones)

If you have a more modern tv which has red and white outputs then its still doable, the issue might be with speaker fill though since the sound may only come through 2 speakers and the sub and not use the rest

Offer accepted shuwaz. Sending PM.
#13
PM received but a few queries before I make payment:

1) do you want normal paypal or paypal gift?
I would need your full contact details (name, address, tel. no, email, etc.) if you were to request the gift option.

2) Please can you package this item extra carefully as last time someone sold me some speakers (via ebay) they arrived damaged. As I had already left feedback I was left high and dry.

3) What assurances do I have that if the item arrives damaged that you will sort it out (i.e. chase the delivery company for compensation or just compensate me).

Unless all of the above is satisfactory I would only be willing to pay 50% now and 50% upon delivery (i.e. so I have the chance to check the item upon delivery whilst the courier is there).

Normally the rules are that the member be with lower feedback post first (not meaning that it is an official rule, meaning generally speaking (_;)). Of course if your willing to do that then no problems, commence with the deal.

There is no rule stating that a lower feedback member should post first. Its done as a sign of trust.

MOD edit : Just to confirm that sellers do not have to post items first before payment and it's purely personal choice - NB : I've added to this existing post and removed subsequent discussion rather than rebump the thread again with another new post, thanks to both members.

shuwaz, I am not willing to post first due to bad experiences in the past.

I never post things inappropriately, the speakers would be parcelled correctly. I would be posting via Royal Mail Standard Parcels, because it's much easier to sort things out if they go wrong. You are quite welcome to request all of my contact details and phone for a chat if you want.

I have an eBay account with 142 feedback at 100% if you would like to confirm through there as well.

Another option is to use the non-gift version of PayPal so that you are covered, which means a fee of about £0.75.

Is RMSP covered at all? If it is then fine, I'll pay now. Otherwise I would prefer it to be sent via a trackable/covered method.

Non-gift version of Paypal is v.good for me but not sure what you mean about the fee? Are you saying I have to pay the fee or you? If I send £18 paypal would take 3.5% (68p).

I'd appreciate if you could PM me your mobile number. Just so I can contact you quickly if something went wrong (e.g. contents damaged upon delivery). Once you've responded via mobile I'll send payment (I have your payment details).
#17
Standard Parcels covers up to £46.

And yes, I'm saying if you want to be covered against me for peace of mind, then you might prefer to pay the fee, otherwise it's gift. I'll PM you my number once you have applied positively here.
#18
omg, just a speaker of £18, i should of respond quicker, than i guess the speakers already on their way to me

OK, I'll send you £19 (that should cover the fee).
Paying and PMing now. :)
