Sony STR-DG520 for $130

90watt rms x 5


Sony SS-B3000 Speakers for $70


Looking for a nice little setup for my computer... I picked up a X-Fi Xtrememusic sound card and I've wanted a better sound setup for a little while... I figured I would just use this while I'm in Korea and when I come back stateside and shipping won't be an issue I can pick up some nice floorstanding speakers and use the Sony's for surround.

Any other recievers I should look at in the $100-$150 price range , and speakers around $100-$150 ?

I can also get these Boston Acoustic CS26B Speakers for around $130... http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5375101&CatId=4598

Not to korea ;) Shipping is an extra $50 so it comes out to around $180 ... I'm also a bit skeptical that there all only 3" woofers ... but thanks for the suggestion!

They get really good reviews. I actually own them, but I don't have anything to compare them to. They sound pretty good to me for the money though.

When you get back into the states build yourself some Tritrix floor speakers. http://speakerdesignworks.com/Tritrix_pg_1.html
Truly amazing!
