    Hi,
    Please help me in building a sound system for my room 13'x12', this system will be used for music and video games only... so, i guess the sound system doesn't have to be dts or anything, only stereo will be great. So... should i buy a receiver than 2 floor stand speakers?
    (oh, i only have 'bout $250 to build this)
    all i want is something that plays music nicer than those boombox and pc speakers...
    thanks for reading guys...

    Kyle, in terms of video games, if you're playing XBOX, you should definitely consider a 5.1 system, as the 5.1 soundtracks for XBOX games are outstanding. Even if you're playing Gamecube or PS2 games, the Dolby Surround soundtracks on some of those games are quite good when played back through all speakers via Pro Logic II.

    There's probably Kenwood HTIB sets for $250ish.

    I'm not sure if the deal is still good.. but recently Fry's electroics had a Sherwood 5.1 DTS reciever for 79! I bought one myself.. haven't hooked it up yet.. need to make a speaker box first [​IMG]
