As noted in my profile, I'm almost as into computer speakers/home theatre speakers as I am into headphones...
I want to set up a 5.1 system in my room, but it has to be relatively compact with NO dedicated amplifier (i.e. the subwoofer has to have an integrated amp to power the whole system).
My home theatre upstairs has an amazing $8k-ish Martin Logan Electrostatic Surround system 5.1 (2x Front MartinLogan ESL Electromotion with Audioquest CV8 cables; Center/Rear L/R surrounds: 3x ML Fresco i; and a ML Grotto i subwoofer) with a TOTL Yamaha amp, which is amazing, but I can't fit that in my room.
I'm currently using a 2.0 Harman/Kardon GLA-55, which is also amazing. But I want surround 5.1 in my room.
I've already tried and disliked the Klipsch Promedia Ultra 5.1 -- from like 2003 loooooll////
Any suggestions? Are there even any on the market besides Klipsch and Logitech, both of which are entry-consumer level? I've bought the $50 (on sale) Logitech Z506, just as a joke because I was curious how $50 5.1 surround would sound like (spoiler alert: NOT good).
Thanks in advance!
