Traditional speaker packages tend to have big speakers which can sometimes be hard to accommodate, but if you can then you'll be well rewarded with a powerful sound. We've rounded up the best ones out there...

A soundbar or soundbase might improve the sound of your TV but to get a proper cinema experience at home, then only a 5.1 speaker package will do. 

We've picked out some of our favourites, covering all price brackets, from under £1000 to well over £3000. But no matter your budget, all of these packages get the What Hi-Fi? seal of approval.

This multi-Award winning package from Dali still manages to be the best at this price point. The five speakers - four standmounts and one centre - work harmoniously with the E-9F subwoofer to deliver an astonishing sound. It can go up high to way down lown in a snap. Dialogue is clear as you like and the overall soundfield is far-reaching and immersive.

The Bronze B5 AV package uses technology from the company's more expensive ranges and the results are amazing. This is a well organised and detailed package, with great cohesion between the channels. An excellent home cinema system.

You'll need to make sure you invest in some quality stands for these speakers, but once you do, the results will blow you away. The R100 5.1 is a talented, powerful package. Sound effects are placed with precision accuracy and the scale will fill the majority of rooms with ease.

This PMC package managed to unearth so much extra detail in our favourite test discs that for a while we decided to keep it as our reference speaker package. It may be a bit on the pricey side, but the seamless integration and immense power will soon have you forgetting about your bank balance.
