Disclaimer: I've dug through most of the threads, but if the answer I'm looking for has been given before, feel free to just toss me a link.
I've been thinking for quite some time about how to upgrade my PC setup with decent sound. I've listened to some of the "gaming speakers in a box" setups and am not very impressed with them. I'd like to go to a 5.1 solution, but 2.1 will work too.
The primary concern that I have is that the left/right/center channel speakers will be about 3/2/3 feet away from me on the desk. I'm not sure that most Polk products are really designed to have me sitting right on top of them.
That being said, willing to have a go at it, so here I am. The rear surrounds would be about 7 feet behind me on the wall. I'd probably pair this with a low-end Onkyo receiver.
Any advice appreciated. Current speaker setup is a sub with a couple of electrostatic screens. It needs to go. Thanks.
