Yes. I've done quite a bit of reading these past couple of days. THE HTPC is by no means a new concept, but it seems that plenty of uninformed people are still wasting their money on PC speakers. High quality AVR's and amps are cheaper than ever... and more sophisticated than ever.
I'm kinda thankful that my 10+ year old PC speakers crapped out on me. It forced me to see the light, so to speak. LOL.
