In a DVD magazine, I recently read an article advertising a Sony (I think) amp/speaker system, which consisted of a single box underneath the LCD TV, which outputted 5.1 surround sound, without the need for speakers & wires. I'm not 100% sure about these systems & I apologize if this is common knowledge, but I really am interested in something like this when I upgrade my TV to an HD, to go together with my PS3 & Blu-ray movies. I'm sick of wires & mess, so my question is, are these any good, or are they just a gimmick? Also what kind of price am I looking at & do they output the new HD soundtracks?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
