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 getting a P4pE with on board sound max card

1) Utilizing either analog, (best for audio), optical or digital coaxial (best for DVD movies)

2) Most people, I would reckon inputting them onto an AV receiver

WITH A BUDGET OF US 450 , I WANTED TO EXPLORE using a PC Multimedia 5.1 speakers with sub-woofer


A) For 5.1 DVD Playback , I THOUGHT OUTPUTTING from the on board sound card 's OPTical or digital coaxial , since this would yield much better sound than analog


a) The cheapest speakers I found with the above optical and digital co-axial inputs is THE PROLOGIC z680 (400 US)


b) Would we get even better quality by paying 50 US more for the traditional combination ?


A Yamaha 430 /Marantz 4300 receiver with a respectable set of 5.1 speakers & subwoofer such as Yamaha’s NSP 230.



5) Moreover, If I am not mistaken, I would have to get a certain software like theatre tek 2 to decode DTS, and DD (AC3) whereas a receiver can do all that. Z 680 decodes DTS, DD , but not DD EX or DTS ES .
