Wow...apparently I haven't thought about sound as much as I should.
But there's no way in hell I'd be able to afford any of the stuff in this thread, sorry. World Leader Pretend, I know you say not to pick up a $500 system, but for me, $500 is a lot. I'm breaking my bank to get a Samsung 30-inch 720p CRT already.
What would be your best advice for those looking for a cheap, but decent, audio setup? I've been listening through built-in speakers on small TVs my entire life, so pretty much anything would be an improvement, but I admit I could use some guidance here. I don't know nearly as much about audio as I do about video.
and i guess i've known it all along / the truth is, you have to be soft to be strong
