yes it does and I really like the N22 because it has a pre-out which goes into the sub (a sub is necessary with these tiny speakers)

I'm seriously considering the MilleniaOne 2.0 and MilleniaSub to be the foundation for my computer sound system setup.

I'm curious how the sub connects to the Audioengine N22 amp.

And how are you getting sound in to the Audioengine from your computer?

I'm also considering a small/mini a/v receiver that I could use in place of the Audioengine. Any suggestions?

as my post above....The N22 has volume controlled line level output jacks that you can use to output to the sub.

To get sound into the computer, I have an external DAC but you can plug the Audioengine amp directly into the analog output from your onboard soundcard.

As for a small AV receiver, the one I would buy is the Marantz 1402 http://us.marantz.com/us/Products/Pa...oductId=NR1402. That would be my first choice. It will have bass management so you can choose an ideal 100-120hz crossover

What is the DAC you are using?

Headroom Micro DAC which is part of my headphone listening rig.

I would advise something like a NuForce uDAC2 would give you good sound quality for the money.

I plan to buy this setup for 5.1 to replace my Klipsch RF7's RC7 and RS7's. I just sold my 50" Kuro for a bigger 65VT30 and plan to wall mount it and get some much smaller speakers as this is a bedroom setup. I already have a Sunfire True Singnature Sub so i hope it works good with these speakers.

Interestingly, the small size notwithstanding, and using a pedestal TV, I currently have two placement options: 1) the left speaker atop a 22" high unused subwoofer on the left and 31" component rack on the right, or 2) On either side of the TV pedestal which is virtually floor level. Will either of these work acoustically? The alternative would be to use speaker stands. Assuming the non-feasibilty of the two choices mentioned, does anyone know of speaker stands that would be appropriate for these small units? Thanks.

I picked up the Millenia One (2.0) to be used as back surrounds on my 7.1 theater setup. After break-in, I'm extremely pleased - - great sound. Matches very well with my FL/FR Studio 60's V.2, Center CC-690 and Side Surrounds - Paradigm ADP-590.

I was spaced challenged for rear, back speakers and the Millenia One's wall mounted very nicely. Same tweeter construction as the bigger speakers - - so the timbre matches beautifully and sounds great for movie soundtracks and SACD's.
