Have any ideas for a good home theater for 300 or less? I was thinking of this:

If you're in the US, I'd go for this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882120200

$299 Free Shipping.

That Samsung setup is "meh" at best. It's fine for the money, but there's much better alternatives out there (such as the Onkyo). It's kind of like buying a z5500 and comparing it to AV40's. 5 crap speakers doesn't make good sound quality.

To bad the receiver powers the subwoofer on that unit, and has no sub out for future upgrades unless using a sub with high power input..
But this is still better then those HTIB bluray/dvd combo system.

Hello!

I want an advice. Right now I have ASUS VULCAN ANC headset (32 Ohm) and Creative Augidy SE with modified drivers (daniel_k). I want to change my sound card. Will be ASUS Xonar D1 a good choice? Is it worth to change it? Someone said, that is not worh it because there will be no built-in headset amplifier...
Music and games is my preference.

Thanks for you time! redface.gif

sorry for bad engrish
post #777 of 5030
any suggestion for headset for around 70$

( the compromise gamer ; creative aurvana are outdated ( out of stock wont receive more stock )
post #778 of 5030
@Smile yes it worth it, if you had a pair of headphones that benefit from being amped then DG would be a good choice. But since your current headphone doesnt need to be amped. the Xonar D1 should make you happy. Tho you can always add a amp to it in the future when you do get better headphones.

@amadnei you can find a pair of Audio Techinca AD300 for 58 cad on ebay ,Then for a mic you can use a clip on mic. You could prolly find more headphones deals esle where besides ebay.ca

Superlux HD668B's are $40.00 with free shipping over here http://www.greenflymusicsupply.com/store/Superlux-by-Avlex-HD668B-Enhanced-Bass-Stereo-Headphones-p4076.html
I think I'll also get the Asus Xonar DG http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16829132020
Total: About $70.00 with shipping. Is that all I need? Any advice? I'm not too knowledgable about audio :S

EDIT: This would be mostly for music/gaming. Budget is under $90 total...
