The LCD TV I have has TruSurround XT, but I think I like my speaker set up better.  :-\

I've got an LG 32" 720p something or other.

Audio set up is the higher end of mid range atm but I'm going for something a little more custom.. Audio in (PC/Decks/whatever)> Mixing desk> Individually amped studio speakers.

Do you watch stuff on TV straight from the PC.

Sometimes, HD rips... The case I have atm is a little bit noisey but I also use the PC to play games via an Xbox controller which is nice.

I bought a PS3, which at the time was cheaper then most BluRay players, but I play games as well.

With the USB ports and the fact it will play .AVI's from disc or mem stick, it was a good buy.

Another one for the wish list.

Your PS3 is compatible with 7.1, don't know if another 2 speaker in the middle of the room will make that much difference.  :-\

5 speakers and a base box is enough to look at, i didnt know they still made films iin 7.1. ???

It's just Circuit City's brick and mortar stores that are closing.  Their online store will stay open.  Also, I've heard of some of the stores pulling a scam.  They mark their products up, then mark them like 40% off.  Just be sure to do your research when purchasing from them.
