For TV or computer use?
Looking to get a new 5.1 surround system at home to replace the rubbish usb speakers i've been putting up with. Could probably stretch to about £100?
So far have looked at
Creative Inspire T6160 Speaker System
Xenta 5.1 Surround Sound Speaker System
Genius SW-N5.1 1000W Speakers - Black
Any body got any of these? or any other alternatives?
Looking for something that has a good sounding bass to it but can be pushed without sound to tinny or distorted
For TV or computer use?
I got a logitech set about 5 years ago and they are solid still. I cant remember what model it is but im sure they are discountinued. But have a look at logitechs kit as it hasnt died for me yet.
For that money I'd be looking at a nicer 2.1 over a lower end 5.1 ...of course that's just my opinion
I'm always shocked by how good the Harmon Kardon soundsticks are whenever I hear them (~6 of my friends have them, I've not bought them myself yet) - that little sub is a thumper, and the towers are fantastic sounding.

If I were to pick any, I would go for the Xenta
I was just about to post this same thread!
One of my friends has tasked me to provide him a complete home entertainment package for a grand - 42" telly, PC with TV recording, and surround sound. The remaining budget allows for something around £90 for a 5.1 system, though anything better value than that lets me invest more in the PC.
Ideally I want something with a separate amp, so more than just the PC can be plugged in (would be nice to have the TV connected directly, and I suspect brother-in-law will take his Xbox over). I'm not sure a good 5.1 system can be had at that price though, so worthy 2.1 systems would be welcome as well.
I know bugger all about sound systems so any and all help appreciated
I too have been looking at them, mostly because my last two flat screen tvs have had crap sound but also because the F1 is in 5.1 surround. But, I want a wireless rear speaker system and the cost of these is still too high for what I want
I can confirm the soundsticks with that sub are genius.
