Can you elaborate on "it has never worked properly since he got it!"
A new system isn't going to help if the samsung hasn't been installed correctly.
If it's nothing to do with the set-up then why wasn't it returned as faulty?

well it went back to the shop 3 times with a noisey fan (away for about 3 weeks each time) then it kept turning itself off but was then out of warranty so samsung wouldn't help apart from tell me that "yes it is faulty" keeps going into protection mode when watching t.v through it but worked ok when playing dvds

lol I did see the top one earlier but because it didn't say 'cinema system' I didn't know what it was
I'll take a look now
and yes nothing wrong at all with his speakers tbh they have hardly been used so practically like new so would he get away with an amp?

ta, if I could rep ya I would x

What about a PS3 as that can act as a Blu-Ray player and he can use it for playing games and ignoring you...

Well if he was looking and your budget is around the price of a PS3 then I'd say go for it.
Just give him "house rules" for when you're about. If he fails to stick to them you could always hide the power cable!!

A PS3 is not a home cinema system. Do you want a all in one or a seperates system? This one here looks good value for money. ONKYO HTS3305 .

If it were me I'd prefer to buy my own home cinema system, being a guy I'd appreciate the thought but I'd be in a bit of a dillema if I wanted a system but was bought one I wouldn't have gone for.
So if it needed to go back I'd be a little split.
PS3 isn't a home cinema system although it's an alternative option as sounds like the Samsung system just needs to be linked up properly and from the sounds of things be in working order.

I think you are probably right, I have no idea (as you can tell) about cinema systems so will probably get the wrong one so I'll probably be safer getting the ps3 thanks x

thanks for everyones help and advice x

I'd ask him about the home cinema system, I'd much rather have one than a PS3.


ooooo I don't know what to do lol if I ask him then he'll know what he's getting but being as he'll be 30 does it really matter if its not a surprise?? lol

Just get him a card.
Or ask one of his mates, if they don't know get them to ask discretely, or you could try yourself.
You could always pop into Ann Summers and get yourself something...then he can unwrap it later?!? Just do it more than for his birthday!!
