Hello all,

It’s been a while since I had posted something here. Anyway, I am in the process of upgrading and am in need of some suggestions. As far as the HTPC and video I am basically set. However, I have not added any type of audio. In my HTPC I have only a Sound Blaster Live 5.1. I am considering getting the M-Audio Audiophile 2496 from Digital Connection. Also I am running Windows 2000 service pack 2. With that said, I am looking for audio suggestions. At this time, I have no speaker / amp / receiver / subwoofer. The only speakers I do have are the ones coming from my Sony KL-W9000. I am looking for a budget of about 1-2,000 at the most for everything. Any help would be great.

It's not really specific to home theater computers, but here is the Web Cult Classic sound system:

$850 5 nOrh 4.0 ceramic speakers
$499 Outlaw 1050 6.1 receiver
$399 SVS 25-31CS subwoofer
$382 Samson S700 amp for subwoofer (also at SVS)

You could try it without the subwoofer amp initially, and you could even limp along for a while without a subwoofer, as the nOrh's go pretty deep for such small speakers. If you decide to go cheaper on the subwoofer, a $200 Sony subwoofer gets raves at its price point. nOrh, Outlaw, and SVS are coming out with some new products soon, BTW.
