I am not a frequent poster here, though I have been reading along for over six years. I listen to a broad variety of music from hip hop, to classic rock, to EDM, to jazz, and everything in between. After a few false starts, I have finally assembled what I believe is the best sub-$1,000 rig. Let me know where you think I could have done better or have room to upgrade. Or if you agree that I've hit the nail on the head, let's hear that too and maybe others can just buy the same and cut to the chase (but then again, what's the fun in that).
Total: $978 before taxes and shipping and interconnects
