Hey guys, I'm brand new to the whole forum thing, so please be gentle.
But anyway, I decided to splurge my Christmas money and get a crappy little home-theater-in-a-box... a Sony 300 watt 5.1 set-up.
And you know, it sounds okay, nothing spectacular. It's a little muffled but its better than what i had before, so it's good enough for me.
So I tried to hook it up to the BRAVIA, hoping it would have an optical input so i could take advantage of the cheap surround sound, but the receiver only has RCA inputs.
If i have a cheap system I at least want to get real surround sound and not "simulated surround sound".
I was wondering if there was such thing as a simple little receiver that only has what i need (an optical input with 5.1 connections) that way I could save some money.
(I am in college, and therefore poor)
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Oh, and this is how i have things set up right now if it's of any help:
PS3 + cable box to TV via respective HDMI and component cables,
and a single red and white RCA connection from the TV to the receiver for sound.
