This 2.1 system won't match a full 5.1 set, but is still a major improvement to built-in tv speakers, and will be good for those who don't like their living room cluttered in speakers and miles of cabling. Dolby Digital, DTS, all kinds of inputs, FM radio. Integrates perfectly with other Sony products. Free delivery. Around £199 elsewhere.

Hmm, I don't know. Thinking getting the Acoustic Energy Aego-M would sound a lot better, just plug it in to the headphones/audio out on your TV. As its 2.1, don't exactly need DTS decoding, etc.

Looks like the system you mentioned is designed for use as a computer speaker set rather than for home cinema (what doesn't mean it can't be used as one)

I do!

This is a set of plug in amplified speakers, (not very convenient for a start!) probably ideal for a PC, but not something I would want in a Home cinema set up; whereas the original posted item is far more sophisticated, (Digital optical etc.) with remote controls and extra features such as radio; even the ability to adjust the time delay for lip sync!

When I get round to replacing my current Panasonic 5.1 home cinema I am certainly considering something 2.1 as the back speakers are nothing but a nuisance, and difficult to site, with relatively little benefit in terms of sound in a small room like mine!
Whether it will be Sony is another thing, as I generally find Sony gear overpriced, and unreliable.

Home Cinema System ????? what cinema do u go to that has 2.1

For somebody looking for a 2.1 system, this is a great deal, if you look it's at least £280 elsewhere.

Heat added.

I paid £55 for my brand new AE Aego M's about 3 years ago so look around and im sure youll find them for less than £123

For example you can get a 5.1 system for less money with a digital input. If you dont want the rear speakers, ignore them. But having a dedicated centre speaker for audio will be better. comet.co.uk/sho…ion

Who knows, the Sony could sound loads better. I guess shop around, this isnt the most fantastic deal.

The whole point of 5.1 and 7.1 audio etc, it routes component parts of the overall whole sound to various speakers, so that part of the whole sound "spectrum" is lost without using them all - better to have something designed to operate on 2.1 in the first place, OK you won't get the rear sound effect to effectively, but at least all the sounds will still be there to be heard at the appropriate volume.

I cannot say if that specific system does it, but most that I know allow you to downmix the source.
