Look on ebay. The gear-heads are moving to 6.1 and 7.1, there will
be cheap 5.1 equipment up for grabs.
Beware. Most Surround systems are sold into the fashion or
"Lifestyle" market. The quality, particularly of the speakers, is
abysmal. A good system would cost a lot of money. You'd get a
better musical experience from a decent stereo system.
