Yeah... so.. if i buy the 2 monitor 70 plus the onkyo tx-sr608, i feel like i would receive half of the goods i'm paying for, because it would still miss 175w to each speaker.. (i know, power is not all) so 800$ already.. no sub included, would it still worth it even if i use it with 128kbps mp3.. :/

Edit: They is also the corsair sp2500, it's better quality than the z-2300, but i guess it still miles away from the monitor 70 with a real sub..

Never believe the hype.
Consoles aren't about hardware, they're about good games.

No. If you're wanting to keep things on a budget....

Grab Polk Monitor 40's, the BIC Formula F-12, and whatever receiver you choose. BIC also makes some decent bookshelfs too, I just forget which ones. There's TONS of other options out there too, but they get expensive, and likely won't get AS loud as what you're wanting.

And you're not LOSING anything by only giving the speakers 100w RMS. 100w RMS at 8ohms is a LOT of power.
