You can spend serious sums of money on a sound system, how big is you wallet ?
and what amp / speakers do you use at the moment
unless you are very short of space I would not recommend a sound bar
Yes, can't you just! I'm using a pair of £10 (probably £5) desk top speakers with about 2w output! :-)
Space IS very limited, but I think I've got enough for broxibears recommendation, and the Best Buy customer reviews seem to be very favourable. As you say Broxi, they're £25 which although not a ton of money, will be a massive step up from what I have already :-)
I haven't found anyone who would suggest I buy the sound bar, so I'll knock that off the list.
With regards to cableing, I have downloaded Dell's set up guide for the monitor off their website. It seems that the reviewer who stated that to view at full resolution I have to connect using the screen DVI connector was correct. You can use the various other ports that the screen has, but any other than the DVI will give you a reduced desktop. As my laptop doesn't have a DVI port, I was thinking a buying a DVI - HDMI cable. These seem freely available, so I guess this is a common problem? Anyone have any knowledge if DVI - HDMI has any advantage over HDMI - HDMI?
