    i got this set from comet ok its not optical but on the ps3 these are well worth the money and in pc world they are £73.39 and not available online ( they havnt been since crimbo when they were £50 odd pcworld.co.uk/mar…775


    I can recomend them for the PS3 and PC anyway mate if you REALLY want to use it for the TV as well then you might want to get "Play TV" to hook up to your ps3 if it works out cheeper than getting a optical system

    How do you get these working in 5.1 on the ps3 if they are not optical dude?

    Basically connect it via the Normal connection but just used the sound cables and set up the audio on the ps3 to the cables and not HDMI i think, but i could be wrong.

    Also i would much prefer Optical to that because...well basically my dad's convinced me to get optical

    im looking for a decent 5.1 as well my my PS3/tele --- had a look in currys, comet and PC world, but no luck --- most came with a DVD drive which i dont need

    it comes with a game adaptor baisicly

    your tv hooked up via HD

    and you know the SD cables? red white yellow? you plug them in the back of the ps3 and you plug the red and white into the game adaptor which hooks up to the sub

    then you go to the PS3 settings and change audio to " AV "

    simple

    dosnt look bad, but postage is a bit heavy at 10.50 for something thats only 20 quid. My budgets about 70 quid by the way - -- note- sorry to hijack the thread but its so similar to what the op wants i couldnt see a reason for another thread

    garlicbread -presumably, if you connect it with the red and white, it'll just be stereo, not 5.1 - they use some sort of "matrix" to turn this into 5.1 --- does it sound realistic to you?
