It might mean a bit of rejigging (or moving to a bigger house), but a 5.1 home cinema speaker system is the best way to experience movie audio in the home. These are the best around.

Whether you're watching all-out action fests or steeple-fingered foreign art films, a 5.1 speaker system will enhance the experience no end. You can spend anywhere from a few hundreds pounds to £10,000 - so how do you know which is right for you? By checking our list below, that's how. All of these get the What Hi-Fi? seal of approval, so you're guaranteed a good time.

Tight on space? A soundbar or soundbase is the next best thing.
