So my friend asked me to come up with the cheapest surround sound set up that I could, he’s on a budget that doesn’t stretch to an AV receiver and name speakers, so after thinking on it I wondered if i could buy a small 5.1 amplifier board, but this ready made amp caught my eye. So if he buys this and I make him some small mtm sattalites that will have a power rating of 60watts, maybe slightly larger ones for the LF and RF channels after working out rough costs, I think i can get the whole system built for him for less than £500. Given the fact I haven’t used an amplifier like this before I wanted to get others opinion on the quality of the system this little amp could possibly produce.
I realise its meant as a kareoke amp and that it doesnt support dolby (that i can see) but for use as a surround sound for movies and music im wondering if it will do the job. If not, can anyone recommend a small unit/board that will? That could possible include dolby?
