Beginning or end of what?

Hey, my PC can play CDs in its CD-ROM drive, so I don't need to get an A/V system, right?

I can watch DVDs on my computer's DVD drive, so I don't need ot get an A/V system, right?

My PC can play MP3s, so I don't need an A/V system, right?

I can watch TV on my computer, so I don't need an A/V system, right?

I can plug stereo components into my computer's sound card, so I don't need an A/V receiver, right?

Look, I can play music from just about any medium, watch video from just about any medium, and with the right hardware/software support, record and play back anything I want, all on my computer.

It's also the last thing I want to do when I just want to listen to music or watch a video. Making these things computer applications takes all the disadvantages of the original medium and adds to it the unreliability and slow startup times of the computer.

No-effing-thankyou.

Yeah, my computer can already do an awful lot of what my A/V system can do. It's just that the A/V system does it better, more reliably, takes less time to power own, and with a much better user interface.

Remember: Just because something can be done doesn't mean it's a good idea. Just because it's a good idea doesn't mean it's a better idea than the old idea.

Is this only true if you get it through a PowerBuy (at Mercata)? http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif
