Asda SP 550 surround sound system.
Bought this surround system to hook up to blu ray player. Very easy and straightforward set up. Once set up, played a blu ray disc after selecting the correct source, and setting speaker levels through the player. The sound is just incredible and crystal clear. There was a knocking effect coming from one of the rear speakers (which was part of the film) and my son actually thought that someone was at the front door!!
1x25w subwoofer and 5x10w satellites, which are very discreet and not unattractive, give massive sound. Speaker wires are about right length for my front room, but if you have a large room, get some extension cables.
Remote control is small, but well laid out, enabling the volume to be altered on each pair of speakers and the sub.
The only niggle I have with it is that when you turn the system on, it comes on at max volume, and the remote feels cheaply made.
I have the 5.1 connected to blu ray player, and 2.1 connected from sky box via the aux socket on the back of the sub.
All in all, for £40, including all the cables, you can't really go wrong, and it is an absolute steal. For surround sound on a tight budget, you will not do better than this.
Go get some before word gets around, and they sell out.
