    Hi,
    I have an issue with the following.... Currently my PC is linked to: Yamaha RX-V457 AV Receiver which is linked to, 2 mighty beefy speakers. Computer: MS Windows XP Pent 4 Pross. on board with Creative Sound Blaster Live 5.1 sound card. All media is played via Real Player Plus. What is the best way to set all of above up for best listening... Through Yamaha Amp....

    Comments Please

    Thanks
    John

    Get rid of the 2 Beefy speakers, and get your self a Audigy 5.1 or 7.1 card and get a nice set of Klipsch 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound system and install them in the room correctly like me and you will never go back to anything less again. Trust me

    If you mainly listen to music, keep the two big speakers and run your PC through the receiver as before. If you watch films a lot though, you'll want surround sound, trust me. If that's the case you can go to a premium surround set like Logitech Z-5500s.
