You and I are probably the few out of the many that would want to see pics I just love audio setups hehe. There's just something that says "Mmm mm beefy!" if you know what I mean

But yes, pictures are a must. Kinda forgot about this thread that I was lurking on before

Whoops, forgot to update you guys! Sorry!

Anyway, it sounds great. Much better than my old Klipsch 2.1 system. I would provide more pics, but I went over my Photobucket's monthly bandwidth.

Like I said if you are a gamer, you will get nice PRECISE, clean sound, and wall people in Left 4 Dead, CS + other games so precisely, they will call you a wall hacker. So if you're looking for clean and crisp sound, stick to a good sound card+headset. Plus the so called onboard sound with "HD" drivers from realtek and such are just straight garbage, it sounds disgusting. Every person I recommended to a nice sound card and headset were always happy with the choice. Don't forget you need good quality music too if you want songs to sound good. I'm using the sound card i mentioned above and a decent Razer Barracuda headset with lots of good adjustments and sound features, awesome surround sound. I went and listened to that Virtual barber shop thing with real 3d sound y00t00b.com and I did what they said to do, close my eyes and listen, and the entire time I seriously thought I was getting a haircut and felt like he was moving around me in the diff directions the sound moved in my headset, and is only amazing when you have a good headset+ sound card. Make the wise choice *wink* and good luck =)
Thank you for the virtual barber shop link! It sounds great on my Gamecom 777 headset. +1

There's always Flickr.

How loud do you usually play it?

When nobody's home I play it pretty loud, but not enough to piss off the neighbors. It can get that loud if I really want it too.

Yeah, be careful not to clip the receiver. You're more likely to damage a speaker by underpowering than overpowering.

Yeah, I kinda forgot about that. I'm sure it's underpowering my speakers, since they're both rated at 180 watts each and the receiver puts out 290.
