Standalone Audio System

PostBy: Richard S. On: Sun Aug 14, 2011 8:32 am

I had a set of Klipsch "computer" speakers which were ideal for their portability, I used them at a lot of parties. Plenty of volume and the sytem wasn't so big it was a hassle to move it. Unfortunately they got cooked in the fire and I really haven't gotten around to replacing them. The sub was 33 pounds so it wasn't something wimpy, it had 5 satellites. There was a few types of inputs on the back including standard mini jack, you could plug any audio source into it, ipod, radio etc. I think I paid $450 for them but they had issues and apparently were never really up to Klipsch standards or I would buy another set if I could find them.

What I'm looking for is something similar with 5.1 capabilities but what would be ideal is something that could be switched to stereo so it outputs audio over all 5 satellites.

Having worked for Altec Lansing back in the late 90's, we used to be able to bring home "samples" and prototypes. Also complete audio tests of the competitors systems. I only have maybe 2 whole systems left, 1 was a 641 which is a 4.1 system, no center channel, lots of watts,dual subs in 1 cabinet. Also a Dell ADA995, similar to the 641 but a bit more, which was a kickazz system but runs off of a pci Santa Cruz turtle beach sound card. Look up the specs of the ADA995 and let me know if you are interested. It would be good if you were running a home theater from your computer, otherwise you would need a decoder which would output 5.1 DD so the system would have the correct inputs. I do think i have a DD decoder here somewhere,Creative Extigy.
