wrong place to ask about pc speakers, but since you did, if you have the money to throw away, need a quick fix, and you need a 5.1 system then I'd say the logitechs, but there are much higher quality(HIFI) 2.0 options available in that price range. which you could later upgrade to 5.1 . try to google search the forum and read through this thread. and post a link to the other thread that you already started for your question.

2.0 example... av123.com look at the mini monitor elt525 sale
http://www.av123.com//index.php?page...mart&Itemid=37
then buy a used or budget receiver/amp to power them.

So, if I were to start building a set up little by little, should this be the order?

- Receiver / Amp (for headphones at first)
- 2.0 Speakers
- Sub
- Center Channel (3.1)
- Rear Speaker Pair (5.1)

I don't plan on getting a ridiculously expensive set up, but a decent 5.1 Set up with HDMI and a good headphone jack would be nice. I don't have an iPod so that isn't important. Having both HDMI and Optical In is a must. HDMI Out is also a necessity. So, what should I look into to power my A900s for the time being, and eventually be a pretty good amp for a 5.1 set up. I was thinking about one of these:

Yamaha RX-V365: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16882115193
Pioneer VSX-519V-K: http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PU...SX-519V-K.Kuro

What are your thoughts? Something a little more expensive is a possibility, but if I can get something great in the sub-$300 range, that would be great.

hi, me again. i was wondering if anyone else had an opinions for Best a/v receiver for under 200$.

this was recommended:
http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PU.../ci.A-35R.Kuro

any others? if this is king, i'll recommend it to a friend. he's just going to be doing 2.0, maybe more in the future [doubt it] with a pair of ELT525M Mini Monitor's, that will be hooked up to iPod+LOD, vinyl, and cd player.
