    5.1 Speakers With Optical Input

    Banned
    Looking for some 5.1 speakers, that i can plug my 360 into and play some drum and bass on. My budget is <£50 (no i haven't missed a zero). Would probably settle for 2.1 if there isnt 5.1 decent enough for the price. Thanks for any help

    Found these, not 5.1 for gaming but can't complain at the price

    no optical in on them from what I remember

    look in your local aldi see if they have a dvd speaker package that may have an optical in those can go for £49 £59 £69 etc (you woudl need to look at specs/ back of dvdplayer/amp etc)

    Not too bothered about the optical now, and just noticed they're discontinued aha. So might go for these instead

    •Audio input for data: Stereo Audio (3.5 mm jack) 1 x
    •Cable length: 1.5 m
    •Connector: 3.5 mm stereo.

    you'll need rca to 3.5mm

    I would not bother with 5.1 if you not going to use optical just get a 2.1 .

    mine are all 7.1 and 5.1 ...


    logitech x-230 are were cheap not sure you'll find any. and I dunno what they are like I've not heard any 2.1 other than my older gigaworks.. I know I kept seeing people say for the price x-230 were ok....try not to get something like sumvision, or you maybe could look for an lg cinema package second hand for £50 as a couple of models have and optical in (i don't really like 2nd hand but £50 new is asking a bit too much)

    i have a samsung 5.1 with optical which i have upgraded from would want a bit more than £50 for it though as it cost me around £300 18 months ago. let me know as im gonna be putting in for sale section when pics are uploaded.
