No mention of DivX?!?!

Of all the things you could pick fault with about the product you pick that?!?! LOL

You'd be better off attaching 5 tins cans to a cheap DVD player with string, not forgetting the extra large can and extra thick string for the subwoofer :giggle:

Still it is cheap :thumbsup:

Lack of any Optical inputs does mean you'll only ever get pseudo surround sound (Dolby PL2 etc..if it has any) from external devices though.

Home Cinema this isn't....I would struggle to find decent surround rear speakers alone for the price of this complete set,

Thanks, glad you appreciate that my method would give you better sound quality and save you ££ in the process :thumbsup:.

Seriously who buys this sort of thing? If you're so bothered about films that you have to have surround sound, why would you then go and waste your money on this hunk of junk. As cicobuff says, this ain't home cinema, it's not even close.

Point was that rather than just being sarcastic you COULD have pointed to a better deal ;-) Anyone buying this low end would surely not expect THX quality, but some have to make do with what they can get (your views on the best sub £300 would be more appreciated as Im looking for one at the moment).

My point (all be it a rather tongue in cheek way of saying so) was that there's no point buying anything at this level, the speakers themselves will more than likely be worse than your TV speakers and bad surround sound is worse than stereo not better (your senses are pretty good at picking up things that aren't right).

Hmm a sub £300 sub (pun intended, sorry). The Wharfdales are supposed to be good in that price bracket, maybe an SW250. The Velodyne Impact-12 and MJ Acoustics Pro 50 MkII also review well.

:thumbsup: cheers. Looking for a nice 40/42" LED backlit tv, been told that ext speakers are a must due to poor sound on them.

You must be looking at Samsung then :thumbsup: The Phillips ( 40PFL9704, 42PFL9664) sound is supposed to be pretty good for TV speakers (the PQ is better too), but you'll pay a premium over the Samsungs.

can anyone reccomend a decent home theatre system with optical input?

Wife is insistent that we get a Philips as the PQ we got with our current pixelplus is still amazing (she wont listen that CRT and LCD are a different ball game! :roll:). For once I have no problem in agreeing with her though :thumbsup:

Handy the 40PFL9704 is top dog at the mo but will set you back about £1800 if you can find one. Personally I'm waiting for the new Sony's and Panasonic's to arrive/get reviewed. The Panny plasmas look particularly interesting since this is the first line the ex-Pioneer (Kuro) engineers they took on have contributed to.

Dont mind paying for quality (not just name), current CRT cost £1250 and that was when the RRP was more like £1600 but it literally knocked spots off every other TV at the time! Thanx for the advice

Id hook this up to my TV and have my Xbox with XBMC run through it.

GREAT deal, especially given they are wireless speakers!

nice but I need optical

BK XLS200 is decent for £300 - I bought one recently to replace an old B&W ASW1000 which took up far too much room. The BK has a tighter, faster response, as you'd expect from a smaller driver (10" i think) . It's certainly a better sub than my old one but on occassions I miss that loose, room moving growl i used to get ! If only I had enough room for the Monolith....

the samsung tzr 325?? is good i have it,amazing surround quality and optional wireless too

Ive just connected my Sky+HD box to my surround sound system using an optical cable and bizarrely it sounded better before with analogue!!??

I would never recommend buying this unit as being advertised as "home cinema" because its far from it, however if anyone is struggling either by buying this unit or anything else cross compatibility between toslink and coaxial can easily be solved by buying a powered adaptor from the likes of Ebay for just a tenner.

Just google Optical Toslink to coaxial converter.

*EDIT* Regardless of buying a converter there is no Coaxial input for this unit anyway its all fed via multichannel analogue RCA cables.

Where does it state that the speakers are wireless?:thinking:

I bought this a few days ago on Ebay via the Zavvi Outlet for £49.99 including free delivery and Top Cashback - although now unavailable. I can't say how good a deal it is as it's not set up yet.

you'll get an email tomorrow from them saying there out off stock but you can buy it at 99-99

my headphones will sound better on loud speakers than this pile of pooo :thumbsup:

does anyone know if this records on dvd? or is it just your bog standard dvd player

Personally I'd avoid this like the plague... anyone wanting a cheap home cinema setup look at the entry level Samsungs for around twice the price. For the cheapskates check out ebay... I know everyone hates that name here but since the subs are heavy to post there are lots of good pick up only deals about on there. I picked up a Sony receiver with DTS, Dolby, Pro Logic II, 2 optical inputs, a beefy sub and 5 satellites for a mere £25.

Is there anywhere in the slightest on the specification that would make you think that :? It's a would be "home cinema" system, a dvd player, with satellite speakers and a sub woofer.

Might be good for the PS3 or 360 :w00t:

There is someone selling one of these on ebay, who has provided some more pics:

How? It doesn't have any internal decoding like a dedicated Home Cinema Amplifier, relying solely on Internal decoding from the DVD Player pushing output via 6 RCA Connectors, 2 to the front, 2 to the rear satellites, 1 to the centre, and 1 to the Sub.

It doesn't have a Toslink input.

And the optical cables are now available in Poundland!!!:whistling:

No there isn't, hence the reason I asked. There are SO many of your kind on forums. Such a shame. It must be down to insecurity or low self esteem.

Look no further than the Sony BDV-E300 if you can still get it anywhere. The added bonus of blu-ray, 2 optical inputs and 1000w power output. Not to mention HD sound also. Looks to have gone up to £375 now though as a few weeks ago you could pick one up for £299 at either tesco's or richer sounds!!
Also you can get the system I got the BDV-360is for a few more quid. For around £430 on the net. Has 3 hdmi inputs for lpcm streaming and golf ball size speakers.
