    Check your lips at the door woman. Shake your hips like battleships. Yeah, all the white girls trip when I sing at Sunday service.

    Depending on price, he'll probably want to go with a computer 5.1 system. I'd stay away from Creative though... I haven't been a fan of their overpriced crap for several years now. I'm not a fan of their marketing either. Look into the Logitech w/ the DD/DTS decoder or one of the Klipsch systems.

    Shameless plugs for Polk product:
    Budget - RM6005 or RM6705
    Less budget - RM6800 or RM6900 (not out just yet, but hopefully will be sooner than later)
    Even less of a budget - RM7200, RM7500, or RM7600

    The Paradigm "Titan" certainly is a speaker that commands respect at its price-range (slightly over $200 USD). Once you hear it, you know you are getting a speaker that will hold its own weight.

    Kelley and I took a trip to a local shop (In Portland, Maine) where he insisted that I hear the Titans play. I've heard many of their speakers so I knew what to expect. Indeed the Titan did not disappoint. So much so that when presented with a few incentives from the dealer, I couldn't pass up on the deal.

    What can I say, good looks, good sound, it is hard not to like them. They will be able to fill up a dorm room easily, perhaps even having car-boomers re-think the way they want to approach their systems.

    They arent quite as "cute" as the Bose, but once he turns them on - size is going to be an afterthought.
