I used to own one. It was lost in an apartment fire, but it had excellent sound for twice that price, and more than enough wattage for a small/medium room, like the one that a computer might be in. It also has multichannel analog inputs, making it a good match for the analog outputs of something like a Revo or an Audigy2. Any ideas on a good 5.1 speaker package to match this to? Can we come up with a decent alternative to a set of Promedias, at the same price point?
