For audio, I currently just use a usb logitech G35 headset. I keep looking for a good surround sound headset with discrete drivers and may go with the Razer Tiamat at some point. If I do, I'll go with the audio on the motherboard. I'm not that big of an audiophile really. I have a fairly load constant ringing in my ears so I just need decent enough sound to overcome that.
The emperor? Bit outside of my budget
Frankly I'd worry about stuff falling in my eyes looking up all the time... I mean just like a 'regular' 5x1P setup but with a TV behind it. Gaming/work = 5x1P, TV/movies = TV. That way I can use the same couch, speakers, room, ... Imagine a regular TV furniture just replace the TV with a 5x1P, and replace the wall with a TV that shows when the 5x1P goes down.
I'm not that big on headphones to be honest. have a 5.1 speaker setup with room on the receiver for 9.2. Have you considered tactile speakers like the e.g. the TST239 or a buttkicker LFE? I'm not sure if you can get them to work with a USB headset though. The TST239's will... render all frequencies (so always vibration) and the buttkicker LFE will render only bass frequencies over a certain decibel threshold. Depending on your setup you can use either in addition to a headset or use the TST's as a replacement.
Looking good so far
