Hi there,

Ive recently bought a Panasonic 50ut50, and have found myself aching for some kind of surround sound speaker set up.

I have a ps3, and mainly play games and watch films (only have freeview). Dont want to spend over $500.

After a bit of research I have ruled out HT packages as I dont need a BR player, and have heard they're not that great.

However, I'm struggling to find receiver speaker packages that fall within my budget

Is there anything out there that would suit my needs?

I saw this at JB Hifi. Would you need a receiver, or can it be connected straight to the tv!?!?

Any other info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your help & thanks for the post

Drew

No, they are just speakers.  You can't drive speakers from your TV (generally speaking) - you need a receiver.

The packaged deal is something else entirely, where the retailer has packaged the receiver in with it; JB aren't doing that in the link you sent.

You'll be hard pressed to find a speaker/receiver package in that budget range; your best bet is an HT all in one or go 2nd hand.
