Mass Satellite Speakers x 5
OUR VERDICT - So, you have decided that the sound from your TV just isn't cutting it, well done. Your TV screen may be giving you the cinema experience but the sound certainly isn't, obviously you have had a look at Soundbars, whilst they definitely improve on the offering from TV speakers nothing beats the performance from a dedicated surround sound speaker package.
Without getting into the technical boring stuff we shall summarise why a speaker package is the only real option for surround sound. A soundbar contains all of the three main front speakers, this means it is restricted to the width of the soundbar which is usually about the size of your TV. When you watch a movie the sound is mixed so that you can pinpoint exactly where a sound is coming from so, for example, if a door closes to the right of the screen you will hear this from the right front speaker. This effect can only be truly achieved by having your front left and right speakers spaced further apart than your TV.
Most people worry that when opting for a dedicated speaker system they will have masses of wires on show and the speakers will dominate the room, as technology has moved in rapidly it now means that a bigger performance can be achieved from a smaller speaker and speaker cables don't have to be huge which means that they can be hidden under carpets or in a decorative trunking that can even be matched to your wood flooring.
The Monitor Audio Mass 5.1 system takes all of the modern technology available and packs it into a beautifully compact yet high performing system that gives a surround performance that even the best soundbars cannot match> When paired with a suitably capable AV Receiver you will have a system that costs less than most soundbar 5.1 packages too. In short, we cannot praise the Mass 5.1 highly enough. Monitor Audio have seen that people want to improve their TV Sound without having a system that will dominate the room and as a result have produced the delightfully compact Mass System.
This elegant speaker package has been designed to compliment even the most modern of living spaces, the MIDNIGHT PACKAGE features black speakers with a midnight ( Dark Blue ) coloured tweed effect grille. The MIST PACKAGE features white speakers with a mist ( Grey ) coloured grille. - Thoroughly Recommended.

Much better than a soundbar
After spending lots of time talking to Sharon at Premier Sounds she advised me to go for the mass system over a soundbar. I'm so glad I did it fills the room well and we have no need to go to the cinema again.
