I have been after something like this, as everywhere only seems to do surround sound with DVD/BD Players. What connections does this have?

None. It's just a speaker set. You'll need an amp to connect them to.

The reason most have DVD/BD players included are that the amplifier for the speaker set is hidden away inside the included player.

You need something to drive the speakers..be that a DVD/BD player incuded in an all-in-one boxed deal or a seperate amplifier/AV Receiver.

The alternative is to get a surround sound amplifier/speaker set designed for PCs; for example Logitech's X-540 or Z506 (which will have multiple 3.5mm inputs, and phonos too in the case of the Z506). Altec Lansing also used to do some kits that included a Dolby Digital surround decoder (maybe even DTS too, in some models) that connected via S/PDIF, but it looks like they've stopped making 'em.

Best way to go is separates, though.

Same price instore at Richer Sounds if anyone has one close and prefers collection.

Can I ask something possibly pretty basic. I have a new PanasonicHD tv, Blu Ray DVD, and freesat box, Can I use one of these as an amp then??

Fraid not. Your kit will need to plug into something (an amp) to power the speakers. So you'd need to get these and the Amp. Or, as other users have said get an all in one BD and AMP/ SPeaker set. These predominantly have connections to allow other kit to use the amp. For example you'd plug your Free sat box into it for surround sound.

Hope that helps

have got one of these (same price at Richer Sounds) - good sounding system for the money - bass is weighty - the centre speaker is not brilliant (better than TV) but I guess if you pay £200 for the Tannoys at RS you will see the difference
Only problem is that there is no auto power off/on for the subwoofer (it is mains powered as it is active) so you have to remember to do this (about 45W power consumption otherwise)

My earlier-model Yamaha speaker set has a sub with auto power off/on, but it's erratic; either the threshold is so low that it turns itself on and off during a movie, or it's on all the time! I put mine on a Lidl radio-controlled mains socket, but a better approach might be to use something like this and have it learn the IR on/off code for your AV receiver.

thanks will look into that, but unfortunately with HDMI switching I have my amp turn on automatically when any of the devices connected to it starts so not sure how this will work
