    ! This is ONLY for people that have owned/own or at least heard the Sirocco Pros ever. If you do not qualify, please don't respond.
    Hello, I am thinking of buying the Videologic Sirocco Pro for my computer. I have a very small room, and the speakers would be very near field. Anyway, I would like a digital music system to compliment my Midiland 8200 digital 5.1 multimedia speakers, which I use for gaming and dvd. I have an NForce motherboard, and would be using one digital out for each set of speakers. I am in Canada, and I would like someone who has heard the sirocco pro's to compare them to an equally priced (for Canadians) component system. As I am sure the digital audio converter in my Nvidia NForce motherboard isn't that great, I would like to get roughly the same sort of components as are in the Sirocco Pro for this system. This means I am in the market for a digital audio converter, an integrated amp, a set of bookshelf speakers, and anything else you might want to add, is $1500 canadian. This price is for after shipping and taxes. Can anyone who knows a lot about the sirocco pro, or anyone else for that matter, help me? Thank you! I would ESPECIALLY like to hear from people who have heard the Videologic Sirocco Pro's!
    A friend of mine suggested completely scrapping my current system and simply buying a Turtle Beach Santa Cruz and the Videologic Sirocco Crossfires and the Sennheiser HD590 headphones, as my room is very small and my front speakers are 1.5 meters apart, and he says I wouldn't need a center channel, and the 590's and the Crossfires would be great for music. However, this system doesn't feel right, and I really like my Midiland speakers and would like to keep them, and I don't wish to buy a sound card, as my NForce motherboard seems fine. What do you suggest I do? Thank yoU!
    Here are some webpages for the Sirocco Pro:

    BTW this is not for me, but I typed this for another person who is almost sure he is going to buy the Sirocco Pro's in a few hours.. So go ahead and give me what you got!

    Oh yea, if anyone wants to suggest a component system, they have to be magnetically shielded... and having a 6.5" woofer would be good too, or a component system more exactly like the pro's, with an 8" self-powered bass unit and speakers with 5.25" midwoofers and tweeters. Whichever works best would be great, thanks...

    And, um, my friend here needs a LITTLE bit of convincing that he can get better 'no frills, give me only what I need' sound quality with a component system than with the highly rated pro's. I would think that would be NForce->External Digital Audio Converter->Integrated amp->Bookshelf speakers..
