I am looking for a good speaker system to enjoy music, games and movies via my desktop. I have used creative/altecs before and want to move a bit higher than those and check out what all these polk/onkyo/yamaha systems are about.
I want to start slow and low. I looked up the various sites n picked up two systems within my reach - yamaha ns-sp1800BL or polk RM6750.
I have learnt that having an AVR or an amp is a common thing for a high quality sound system, but I could not know whether they are a must, especially for the likes I mentioned above. So, I am looking for a very low budget, better quality sound. Will the above mentioned 5.1 systems work without an AVR or amp ?
As with most of the computers these days, my computer comes with a 5.1 channel sound card and also an optical out.
Please let me know.
