All three models deliver Full HD 1080p video playback, as well as allowing users to view videos, photos and music from a variety of sources including USB, Apple iPod/iPhone, Bluetooth and DLNA-connected devices.
Kicking off the range at "under £500" is the entry-level BCS-303 with four small satellite speakers, a slim centre speaker and subwoofer, delivering 180W across five channels.
If five speakers is too many and you prefer a 2.1 system, the BCS-FS505 (pictured) has two front speakers that can be positioned vertically or horizontally and a slim subwoofer. Power is 2 x 180W. Again, the price is likely to be "under £500".
For those who can accommodate a full-size rig, the BCS-707 system uses four full-size floorstanding speakers plus a centre and subwoofer. Power output is 5 x 180W, and the system is likely to sell for "under £600".
