Default Re: Help with speakers?

i would consider buying a 2 channel home theater receiver instead of running off the computer. You can buy a 3.5 mm to rca adapter and connect through the aux inut. Reason being the ohms thing. If you go to a standard HT receiver, most run at 8 ohm, just like most lower level to mid range HT speakers. Therefore, you could buy almost any pair of speakers that match the receivers RMX power handling (note, NOT the peak power handling) and not have to worry about the ohms ratings so much.

Hope this helps :-)
