    Not sure surround sound would be best option. We had our decks running through a 5.1 dvd player system and there was a slight delay from the mixer to the speakers, making it utter wank for mixing.

    go down the tip, speakers last longest out of most electrical goods and the amp always goes first, meaning when the bourgeois buy a new set up it comes with new speakers

    got a pair 60w speakers for a tenner, lil bit of home electronics to wire up up but i'm waitin on my dads old speakers from his eighties stereo, any1 wanna drive them up from winchester for me?
