I'm a budding audiophile and music nut, and I need some help setting up a good audio system for my room. I would like to have a 5.1 surround sound setup, with my computer and record player running through it. Right now I'm looking at:

A yamaha 5.1 receiver
a yamaha 5.1 speaker setup (to be spread around the room)
OR
A polk audio 5 piece speaker setup
with a polk audio 10 inch sub (Since the polk speaker setup doesn't come with one)

I'm not set on any of this and I'm open to any suggestions.

Personally I just use my computer for music. Winamp + Izotope Ozone MP + Audigy 4 + Creative Inspire P5800 speakers.

Not top of the line stuff but sounds very nice to my ears, and I'm fussier than most when it comes to audio.

One of the reasons I'm doing this is to simplify my setup. Right now I've got some ify logitech speakers for my pc, and a complex setup for my record player that only halfworks adsouneds bad.

Basicly I need this to run my computer into, which covers my cd's and dvd's (its basicly a hometheater system, its got a 25.5in moniter, hd, etc), and my record player, which is a decent bit of music itsself.

That polk sub is nice.


I'd look into lesser known and independent brands if you want the best results though. Seriously just get an issue of what hi-fi if you're starting out. I dont really have a good set up for my PC so I'm not one to talk.
