Surround sound

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My Dad wants some surround speakers for the HTPC. He says he wants wireless ones with good quality of course. I really don't know much about this so I am here.

I did see this any good or any other recommendations?

Don't go wireless.

I have never liked any wireless speakers I've used. I love my Onkyo HT-S3300. Can be found around ~$280.

The Onkyo looks nice but we don't really have room for the control box...thing...Kinda just wanted some speakers to plug in the back of the computer and be good to go lol
