Im looking for a decent 5.1 surround sound system thats got an optical cable to plug it straight into the 360. My price range is roughly 100 quid.

Cheers

I've currently got my eye on this one.

However, it's £100 over your budget. I would say most home cinema systems have an optical connection these days, but then really I have no idea what I'm talking about lololollllol

Most systems have optical inputs nowadays.

I have a Panasonic system installed in my living room, similar what has been suggested, which is ridiculously good! Also if you have a TV manufactured by Panasonic, you can work both from one remote.

In my bedroom I have the Pioneer/360 system. This was well worth the money and comes with 2x optical inputs. The only system I've seen with this!! So I have a PS3 using the other input. The drawback is that this system isn't a 'home cinema' system as it lacks a DVD player.

Good luck finding a Pioneer set however :(


You'll be looking at £150+ for a system by the way.

Yeah, I've got that one. Works a treat. Especially good for hearing peeps sneaking up behind me on COD.

I have a Yamaha 5.1 system that takes the signal over HDMI from the 360 & PS3, no need for optical then. It also outputs the picture.
