Idiotec, i like the way my Harmon sounds, it was alot better then the other amps i could have gotten.

What do u have as ur setup?
Well, ****, now I feel like a ****. I actually had the AVR65, and was very unhappy. The newer lines might be much better.

I have:

Preamp: Rotel RSP-1068
Amp: Rotel RMB-1075
Mains: Paradigm Signature S4's

I actually just upgraded all this stuff. I haven't gone surround in the main room yet. I am planning on breaking down and doing it. I listen to way more music than I do movies, so I am more into stereo than surround. But since I don't have a deticated HT room, I have to combine the two. That is why I got the surround processor and amp.

I have been very happy with the Rotel products. I have had Paradigms for am while and they always kick ***.

My speakers are the Gateway 5.1's with

-400 watts RMS of power
-A category-leading 116 decibels
-Fully adjustable stands
-Sleek industrial design

These are ANALOG speakers hooked up to an Audigy 2 ZS sound card. I was blown away by the sound, I think this sub is a 15".

What are decibles?

How much better are digital speakers than analog?

Can't you only play DVD audio digitally? Or can games & MP3's play digitally also?

I haven't heard either the Logitechs nor the Klipches, but it does seem the Logitechs are the front runner for the best speakers.

I don't give a crap what teh Wattage ratings are for my Z-5500's. It ain't about the numbers, it's about their performance.

Their amazing. If you heard them in action, you'd see what mean.

I didn't get them for any other reason then (Reading a TON of reputable reviews that highly recommended them) I always do a lot of reseacch before purchasing everything.

This one, payed off...

power rating of every single speaker in the system + power output of the tiny little amp then multiply it by 5

im pretty sure thats how they get it, lol. that system wouldnt take a real 400watts, nor would it be able to put out 400 watts
Ding Ding Ding, we have a winner.

That's the most valid way I have heard them come up with their power ratings so far

EDIT: Wattage doesnt matter and is BS as stated for logitech speakers. But their loud enough to drive the FutureShop people crazy

And as I said before, db is the measure of loudness.

But yes, HK suck ***. They do have true power ratings, I'll give them that, but the sound just sucks. Try Rotel or Lexicon if you want something that sounds good.

I am not trying to say Logitech is audiofile **** either, but this is for a computer, not a home theater. For a computer it is great. For my home theater, I go a lot higher end than HK lol....

Top left corner, yes your lexicon is owned by the suck *** HK
