I just wanted to get some feedback on people using a receiver with their PC for their audio solution. That's what i'm planning to do during the christmas break and I just want to hear some feedback on people who have already done this. These are the options that i've come up with: Receiver = Denon 1802, Onkyo 595, Marantz 5200 Fronts = atoms or mini-monitors Rears = atoms or mini-monitors Center = cc70,170, or 270 *my soundcard is Audigy Platinum I'm not to clear on how you're suppose to connect the receiver to your soundcard. Someone told me to connect the corresponding front,rear, center/sub outs of the soundcard to the 5.1 inputs of the receiver. He said it will allow EAX to be available when playing games but do you lose quality with this setup?? It should be the best configuration for games but what about for music? 80% of the time i'll probably be listening to music so should i use the optical or spdif connections for thaT?? thanks.
