Is there a cheap n simple speaker add-on to a Samsung HDTV?

by jp22206 / February 16, 2008 7:32 AM PST

I'm looking for powered center speaker or sound bar to add on to my Samsung HDTV. I was hoping to find something under $150 that I could preferably plug directly into the TV via a HDMI cable or those colored input wires.

I don't know too much about this stuff so any assistance or specific models anyone could recommend would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Basically, you will need an external power source & a pair

of speakers. That is, a receiver, because the audio out of the TV set is pretty much minimal.

Reality, as interpreted by me, is that your budget just won't do it. If you could save up for a $200 receiver & two speakers at around $200 each, now that is something worthwhile for many years of listening pleasure.

Sound bars are now being reviewed relatively well. But your budget is only for the cheapest of those.

I advise patience for getting a nicer budget available.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
