Ask Engadget: best sub-$100 5.1 surround sound system?

Darren Murph
We know you've got questions, and if you're brave enough to ask the world for answers, here's the outlet to do so. This week's Ask Engadget inquiry is coming to us from Greg, who needs 5.1 surround sound in the worst, most inexpensive way. If you're looking to send in an inquiry of your own, drop us a line at ask [at] engadget [dawt] com.

"I'm looking for a budget 5.1 surround sound system to set myself up with a rudimentary home theatre. I've got a Panasonic Viera TH-42PZ85U TV, and while the picture's fine, the internal speakers are a bit lacking. I know that almost any sound system, no matter how cheap, will probably be an improvement, so I'm focusing more on saving money than getting mind-blowing audio. Value is the name of the game. Can you give me any good leads? Thanks!"

Five years ago, $100 wouldn't get you much in the surround sound world, but today? Today, it's all you need. Toss your assistance in comments below!
