So... I am looking at buying some new computer speakers and I found

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...dQKBfoOS7RRZ3g

which I could plug my computer into. I am starting to like the idea of a receiver and a legitimate set up that I could plug in my PS3, a friends ipod, my computer, my TV...everything into.

The only problem is I hear that the sound quality isn't excellent and the ipod integration fails. Im fine with the bad ipod integration, since I can just get a 3.5mm to RCA adapter and play through there. And when it comes to bad sound quality I am by no means an audiophile and with a system like this I can upgrade at some point, while a set of logitech computer speakers that would be harder to do.

Does anyone know if this samsung HW-C560S is decent, or should I put together my own custom set up (If so can you please make some recommendations?)

Thanks!

Oh yeah, budget is $400 MAX, but ~$250 is preferable. Looking for upgradability so I can upgrade parts as funds come in.

That Onkyo setup looks much nicer than the Samsung setup. I'd say go for that, it looks very decent for the money.

And why would you even BOTHER recommending junk Logitech speakers, when the original post states he would like a PROPER setup?

I know you're probably anxious to pull the trigger on something right away, but I'd honestly save up more until you can purchase something like this.

I know it adds up to $570, but it's just such a better investment. You would be much happier with it and it would stay with you for much longer. You could even add a powered sub down the road and really take it up a notch. Just some food for thought, but take a serious look at what I'm suggesting.

Thanks, they look like really good speakers, but I guess the upgradability and the fact I can plug everything into a set-up with a proper receiver seems better.

I second what jason says btw.
Thanks, yeah Logitech seems like the simple solution if you just want decent computer speakers, but not great for what I am looking for.

Thanks, I agree, the Onkyo set up does look much nicer.

I did take quite a serious look, and I'm just not sure I am willing to drop that kind of money at this point. I have not ever had a decent speaker set-up and $600 for something I am not sure if I would love or not seems...questionable. Thanks a bunch for your help though; that set-up looks REALLY good for the price.

Klipsch Pro Media Ultra 5.1

I had some fans added and some electrical components upgraded and the bass hits hard and the amp stays cool.
