I am looking for a set-up to listen to music. I will be listening from my computer, iPhone, and also (but least important) is home theater through a PS3 and TV. I was thinking about making the jump from a cheap sound-card (that I need to rubber-band the speaker output in order to hear stereo sound) and cheap 2.1 speakers to a receiver and speaker set-up. I have been browsing through threads here and pieced together a potential set-up that I would love some feedback on.
Would I be able to get by with the Yamaha R-S201BL? Is the step up from the 201 to the 300 significant?
Polk Audio TSi-400 (x2)
I have heard that with the TSi-400's you need to add a sub-woofer but I am already way over budget so I could just add a sub-woofer later and still get better sound than my current (borrowed) 2.1 system that oozes static and bad sound? I heard good things about the Polk Audio PSW-505 sub-woofer, but that costs a pretty penny. Is it worth it to go for that or does anybody have any other suggestions?
What cables will I need to connect the 2 speakers to the receiver, my computer to the receiver, iPhone to receiver, and a TV/PS3 to the receiver?
Thank you for entertaining a newbie's questions!
