Insanity, or ingenuity? Whether you have a good way for Kit to accomplish his goal, or a good reason why not to try, drop a line in the comments and let us know.I am a big HTPC enthusiast and also a bit of a tinkerer/customizer. I have a pretty sweet HTPC box set up right now and my goal is to have it be the ONLY box under my tv. Using media center and some plugins I have found it can be my all in one solution.Since I really don't have anything to switch between, I am trying to eliminate a A/V receiver all together. I have looked for a solution online, but I can't find one. I know you can get some really expensive sound cards with some sweet output options, but how do I hook it up to some real speakers with real speaker cables? LFO for a Powered sub? I'm assuming the best solution would to be a small amplifier box tucked behind the system (with the sound card doing the decoding and computing) and I can live with that. Is this crazy or am I not alone in my one box quest?
