    Opinions on this home stereo reciever/speakers?

    Sony STR-DG520 for $130

    90watt rms x 5

    Sony SS-B3000 Speakers for $70

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...pf_rd_i=507846

    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/applicati...101&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.
