I am building an XBMC-based media PC which has TV capability and it will be the only device that I use in my room. I am looking for a way to minimize cost and have an amplified 7.1 setup. I don't really need a receiver as I don't need switching capability. I just need to amplify the sound from the HDMI out on the PC and pass through the video to the TV. Any recs on an amp? I suppose I could also use a good set of amplified speakers.
