Does anyone own or has anyone heard the Samsung HTZ310 Home Theatre system?

I'm wanting a cheap 5.1 system to go with my PS3 for watching movies and this unit has an optical input for that purpose.  Previously people have suggested the Logitec surround sound systems but they look awful.
Also, will the smaller sliver Sky boxes output in 5.1?  There is an audio out socket on the back, is this optical? or just like a headphone socket?

Hi, the small silver pace SD STB (DS-230) has a 3.5mm line output socket which also support optical out (not at the same time) however the current Sky standard STB firmware does not support bridging AC3 streams to this nor output PCM of the mpegI streams on it, (ie its not even lit) and further to that there are no AC3 transmissions associated with any SD transmissions, only HD.

I just purchased the logitech z-5500. Its awesome, for bang for buck your not going to get any better. 505watts, dolby digital, dts, thx certified for $450odd, has optical input etc etc. Im running my ps3 into it through optical, i get both dts and dolby digital, couldnt ask for more.. It might not be the most stylish looking system but its better to look at than said samsung unit! imo
