      Question for the readership… I’ve been looking at these deals for a while trying to catch a deal on one of those speaker systems you attach to your TV. I’m new at this. I just bought my first TV (I’ve been without one for twenty years, no lie, except for a little 7-inch emergency set for hurricanes). I intend to use it just to watch DVDs, though most of the DVDs I’ve been able to collect are concerts and operas. My TV will be in my modest-sized apartment living room.

      What is the value of a speaker system to me, and what is the lowest price I should expect to pay for a halfway adequate set?

      • P=mv says:

        The most expensive speakers on the shelf are not the best choice. Concerts and operas sound incredible with surround speakers and a good subwolfer. The sets that come with a dvd player are not worth it.

      • PunditGuy says:

        What’s the make/model of the TV, and how are you connecting the DVD player? No sense buying a 5.1 audio system if your TV and DVD player only do stereo out.

        • speedwell (propagandist and secular snarkist) says:

          Good question on the stereo out. It’s an LG 32LD350. How am I connecting the DVD player? Beats the living hell out of me. I was going to figure it out myself, somehow.

          • speedwell (propagandist and secular snarkist) says:

            Oh, it says Dolby 5.1 surround sound. Whoa, impressive… I mean, they could call it “15.75 Virtu-Real Ultrasensory Wraparound” for all the difference it makes to this total know-nothing. :)

          • PunditGuy says:

            In trying to come up with some instructions, I’m realizing that this stuff is pretty complicated. Find yourself a relative or friend who knows this stuff for best results.

            You can’t really plug speakers in directly to the TV — you need a receiver, which is another piece of equipment that is sometimes bundled with speakers. The speakers plug into the receiver. The receiver will have AM/FM built in, and then you can hook your TV, audio equipment (tape deck, CD player, phonograph, etc.) and DVD player to it. A receiver capable of 5.1-channel audio will run anywhere from $150 to several thousand dollars.

            The DVD player’s video, depending on the model, can be hooked up to the TV in a variety of ways. Ranked from best to worst:

            1) HDMI (uses HDMI cable) or component (uses 3 of what is commonly known as RCA cables)
            2) composite (uses 1 RCA cable)
            3) RF (uses 1 coax cable)

            (Before anyone yells, there’s no S-Video connector on that TV.)

            Do not purchase those cables at a big box retailer — you’ll only get ripped off. There are plenty of reputable Internet retailers who will sell those at reasonable prices — Monoprice comes to mind. Purchase enough length for you to comfortably pull out equipment if you need to do something to it. For example, if a 3-foot cable fits from your DVD player to your TV but it tugs if you pull out the DVD player, then get a 6-foot cable.

            Now you can worry about speakers. As P=mv stated, the most expensive aren’t always the best. Visit a couple of stores and listen to them — there’s a difference between cheap and expensive speakers, but your ears will have to let you know where the best price/performance ratio is.

            You need two front speakers (buy as a pair), two surround speakers (buy as a pair), one center speaker, and a subwoofer. You can mix and match speakers from different manufacturers, so don’t feel obligated to buy a bundle. Tell the speaker dealer what type of material you watch the most in order to get the best recommendation.

            Stay away from Bose stores. And, unfortunately, having given you a really long answer to a relatively simple question, you should probably stay away from the types of speaker deals you asked about.
