TV surround sound or...............

Hi Over 20 years ago I set up two speakers from an old amplifier from the TV somehow, it was a Rotel Amp and I used two speakers that sat at the back of the room along with the TV Sound.

I was able to control the tones and volume on each speaker individually as each tone knob had a back and front tonal volume control for left and right. I think the amp could use two sets of speakers also but not to to sure now.

Its just got me thinking that I could do a similar thing now, an Amp to run a pair of speakers next to the TV say something like Wharfedale Diamond 10.SR Loudspeakers.

I want clarity not mind blowing speakers so if any one has any thoughts on this set-up rather than buy a fixed rig for around £250. Ok no Boom box but do I need one?

Not a lot of money I know but I just want to here whats said, its me ears not what they used to be.

I have decided to go with a Cambridge audio (1) amplifier but it has no tone controls.

The Cambridge(5)does but its £40 more.

The TV has in and out audio RCA.

As I see it using the RCA audio output ports of the television and connecting the other end of the cable to the audio input ports of the amplifier, and speaker wires to amp terminals i will get sound.

Is it posible to use the sound controls equilizer etc from the TV to adjust tone?.
