I had a Z680 but it blew out on me.. Now I have a Sony 420 watt 5.1 system.. It has less boom effect then the Z680, but is still good..

Well i am here before class so i cant go look at my system right now. I am a true girl here when I say, I know that I have dolby digital and that is about all. My system is only about a year old and I got top of the line then. I know it will go well with the new DLP projector I just ordered myself for xmas... mmmmuuuuhahahahhaaha!

Just my regular TV http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif (But atleast I have 32' TV in my room http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif ). I am not getting a sound system because I need to save money for school. Its either, get a job and have less time to play games, or cut back on my spending lots, and have more time for games... You know which one I choose http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I think I love you val.. I'm a totally Audio/Video geek.. DLP sounds great.. Just make sure to play Halo2 in 480p & the game supports 16X9. If your stereo is a 5.1 set up & optical cable connected to the Xbox advance pack then your ready to go..
True digital sound is awesome..

I've learned my lesson sorta with audio equipment. Even though you can turn it to max volume... doesn't mean it won't blow up your speakers and you'll never hear a sound effect again... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/1072.gif

Don't go above your RMS.. Especially with cheap speakers.. RMS is the number of watts without distortion.. IE Z680 has an RMS of 505 watts.. Max volume is about 700-1000 watts, but you wouldn't be able to make out the audio.. Just loud screaches & annoying sounds..

I have an M&K 5.1 surround system right now. I need to get a new receiver though. Soon. =)

I shall have the hardcore power of 2 factory installed Sharp TV stereo speakers.

My sound system isn't the top of the line just released but it serves the purpose. I have a Kenwood Surround sound setup. It's only 300W, but being that I live in an apartment I can't really crank it up too much. So it's more then enough and yes it does have optical inputs so I can make use of the advanced A/V pack.

Suppose I'd need to get an X-Box first.. but for the sake of argument it'd be an Onkyo 6.1 channel receiver (HT-R520) with a pair of dual Sony bookshelf speakers I got with my 50 +1 Sony stereo about 6 years ago (they still pack more bass than most floorstanding speakers) as front channels, another Sony bookshelf speaker serving as center channel (again, more bass, clearer definition) same Sony for the rear center, then the two bookshelf speakers that came with my Onkyo receiver acting as rear surrounds. Oh yeah, and the 220 watt sub. Sadly, my tv is a hideously old Sharp 30-some inch thing. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif
All I will need is my TV (because I am a cheap bastard hehe).

I am currently running a PSB Stratus 7.1 audio setup. Running off a 770 watt Denon amp. The xbox is connected to my Z2 projector, which displays a 110" image on my 'just over 9 foot' screen.
