You can get the JBL S-38II for $299 a pair and the S-CenterII for $169 from jandrmusic.com

I dont know if you plan on using a Sub or not but these speakers have pretty good bass for a bookshelf and they get good reviews.

My room size is 7 m * by 2. 5m and the area which the 5.1 channel speakers is going to be placed is a area of 3.5 by 2.5 m


I am currently building a HTPC and thinking of outputting sound via a p4pe board via either digital coaxial or optical output


I was told that maybe I can just made do with a Creative DTS 5700 with a built in decoder


1) Is the coverage fine (given the room area )with the DTS 5700 or any other PC speakers . I was told that the built in decoder is essentailly the

same as a AV receiever .


i) and the current arising from a stand-alone AV receiver would not give much incremental listening clarity in such as small room


THANKS

You'll probably get more or better replies if you post this in the HTPC section. Sorry I cant help you cuz I know nothing about HTPC and I'm not even good with the metric system so I dont know how big your room is.

Good luck.
