I'm looking for a decent sound system for my room in my new house. Bearing in mind that I'm a student, price is an issue so I really dont want to spend more than £100.

Ideally I'd like some kind of surround sound system, but I realise theyre quite pricey. Really anything with good immersive sound and quality bass because I listen to a lot of hip hop and bassy music. Doesnt need to be super loud, just immersive. Also could really do with wireless connectivity to my phone so I don't need to spend extra on something like a chromecast audio.

Any ideas please let me know. I'm new to the whole speaker scene but would like to build up a great system to last me a while, just need something relatively budget friendly to start me off, so any advice on it is appreciated.

Thanks :)
 
Anything you get for that price is going not going to allow for future upgrade. It will be a dead end.
I would suggest you get a used receiver and stereo speakers to start. A older non HDMI AV receiver is not expensive. You can add a sub when you have the money or find a used on cheap. Surround speakers can be just about anything you can find used in a thrift shop or Craigslist. A bluetooth receiver is pretty cheap and can be added to any audio system.
 
if you have a smart tv and a pc. i would look at a sound bar with bluetooth and wifi. for the tv if does not have bluetooth use the digitail audio port for the tv. for your pc pick up a cheap bluetooth 4x usb stick. with the bluetooth stick you can connect your phone to your pc. then use a standard set of speakers or head set.

I'm not really looking for anything for TV as I don't even have one or want one at the moment. This is purely for music. For me there's nothing better than a little smoke of the devil's lettuce ;), followed by music, and I've finally got enough money to buy a decent system so I want something really surround soundy and immersive. Would a soundbar be able to do this? And do you have any recommendations for budget options?
