Best Budget Surround Sound System

Key features:
  • Five identical compact satellites
  • 60W powered subwoofer
  • Wall mountable speakers
Proof that you don't have to break the bank to get a great sounding surround sound system, the JBL Cinema 510 that comfortably less than £300. The budget 5.1 speaker system is made up of five identical satellites and a powered subwoofer, all packed into a single box. The subwoofer is equipped with a 60W amplifier that helps produce the punchy sound while the five indentical satellites are tonally matched delivering a cohesive soundstage. It might lack the crispness and detail of more expensive systems, but it more than makes up for it in energy and volume to make these attractive set up great value for money.
