Re: How much did your speaker system cost?

hehe, I paid around 4000$ for my 2.1 HTPC. AND i'm still upgrading. thinking of spending another 600 for a completely new sub setup, another 1000$ for a new PC that would support 1080p HD flawlessly, and another 1000-1500$ for some rear speakers so I would have a healthy 4.1setup...

yep this is a lot of money, but when it's well spent, it's well worth it.

Please tell me the Kiddies are not using that PC, it took me about a month of show and tell before I allowed my 14 and 19 yr old boys to operate my Sony 34XBR970 tube HDTV/Xbox360 and I still don't like it.

P.S. ***, I told them to only use the remote to turn on and off. For some reason they either can't remember or just don't listen. Mainly it's the older of the 2 that must push the power button on the 360. My thinking is that is much easier to replace a remote than to get a power button repaired.

Not to add fuel to the fire , but think about what speakers you could have gotten if you could have added that $1,305 to your speaker budget!

Much to my surprise, my wife brought up going ahead and finishing out an unused part of the basement to the HT we had planned when we built the house. I've been spending my weekends and nights working towards that end. I'm having to finish out a storage space first. I've framed it up, hung drywall and mudded. I'll be priming, painting and hanging the ceiling over the weekend. Once done, I can move the junk out of the HT space and start framing it. If I can finish buy May, I think I'll be doing good!

Re: How much did your speaker system cost?

After being in 2 auto accident in less than a year (Sept. 15th 2004 then Aug. 31 2005) I really needed a new Sofa. My 10+ yr. old sleeper sofa just hurt!
