Hi all. I am looking to assemble a 5.1 system to connect to both my computer and a small HDTV. I have no more than $700 to spend, and my goal is to achieve a nice balance between computer gaming, movie watching, and classical-music playing quality. I am far more interested in quality of sound than I am in volume, and I want to be able to mount relatively small speakers on my walls. My space is limited.

Thanks for any recommendations you care to give.

Logitech Z5500 with good Sound Card.

When playing movies use S/PDIF.
When playing DVD-Audio or SACD use S/PDIF.
When Playing CD chose whatever best suite your needs.
When Playing Games use analog. and let the EAX works it's best.

If you have extra $$ left. replace the satelite with better one like the one from harman kardon

Problem with satelites is that they're not even close to fullrange speaker.
Unless you can find an amplifyer and speaker system for $500.00 and spend the rest of a good sound card.
