Okay, so I'm building a PC next January and I'd like to have an audio setup that is adequate for my needs.
I care about audio but not to the same extent as the average Head-Fi user.
I already have headphones that I'm happy with. V-Moda Crossfade LPs.
I need positional audio. For that I am probably going to get the Creative Sound Blaster ZxR. I might be doing some very light non-professional recording so that's why I went for that over the Zx or the Z models. I chose a Creative card over an ASUS one since the positional audio is apparently superior in their cards.
For speakers I'd like a 2.1 setup, but not a combo set. I'd like to buy the subwoofer and speakers separately since then I'm able to get better quality audio, unless there's already a good 2.1 speaker system that fills my budget.
Preferably, I'd like to keep the whole thing simple. i.e. ZxR RCA out to subwoofer and then satillite speakers via subwoofer RCA out.
For speakers and a sub my budget is £300/$500.
Sorry if I've missed stuff, it's late in the UK and I'm tired.
TL;DR Recommend me a pair of satellite speakers and a subwoofer for my PC under £300/$500.
EDIT: Do I need an amplifier for the subwoofer or is the ZxR enough to power it?
