Help with 2k HTPC Sound Project


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

Been a long time since I got in touch with audio stuff. Going to upgrade my old system into something more decent. Can you kindly advise me since I'm quite a newbie at audio systems. Need to have ok resale value in case I need to upgrade years later ; ) Looking at audio names rather than household brands. I'm looking at 2k for the upgrades, best would be value for money rather than maxing it out since I'm not a savvy audiophile ; )

 

My Current Setup

 

1. E6300 - 2GB rams - Sound Blaster Audigy Plat 2 - X1950pro - 320 Gb HD

2. Marantz Amp

3. Bose Ac 10

 

Will sell the Amp and Speakers

 

Uses

I normally use it to listen to r&b, hip/hop and pop music - not into jazz or symphony

 

Will link all of them up to play games, listen to music and watch movies

 

Gaming/Movies (Vcd/Dvd)

 

What I'm Looking for

 

1. Amp (Not into normal brand names)

2. Speakers

3. Sound card

4. Others

 

Advice

 

As I do not know much about audio, can you kindly let me know if I need optical output and if it'll be better

 

Speakers - do I need 2.1 or 7.1 since I normally watch drama dvd only

 

Soundcard - Seems like there's some EAX stuff nowadays. Would it be good for my system

 

Amp - What type do I need? I see alot of names floating ard like Citypulse and such

 

Thanks !!
