One of my neighbors here is still using Dolby Pro Logic and he was shocked on how sharp my computer sound system sounded. I love playing those DTS ES and Dolby Digital demos to him. Blew him away. He was like, "all that coming from a computer?"
A regular home system costs way too much, but I can get a good one hooked up for the PC for much less and sound just as good. Now I watch everything on my PC including DVDs and with the addition of my new TV tuner, I can watch that in surround sound too.
Oh I can't wait to get my Z-680 set up. And your neighbors would probably faint if he heard the Z-680. 500 watts RMS.... 188 watt subwoofer.. the damn thing even needed a fan on the side to cool it down. I got an Audigy 2 Value with it.. so a great sound card.
A regular home system is hideously expensive. I went today and it was like $499 for a good set of speakers and receiver... PC systems sound just as great as those, and for way less... for sure. I'm gonna get this thing hooked up soon...
Moving my old 5.1 speaker system to my TV (running it off auxillary mode [reduced 5.1 sound, but my TV isn't great]).
