So I've been thinking about getting the Z906 and replacing the sats with a Klipsch Quintet set. As far as computer speakers go, I don't want to have to setup a full size amp in my office with the foot print that goes with it. Plus, if I'm going to buy a new receiver, I'd end up spending more than I want.

When you say the logitec amp is pretty bad--are you referring to the Z-5500 or the Z906? From my research, it seems people are pretty happy with the Z906 sub (fewer opinions on the amp), and I like the slim control panel and integrated amp.


So the question is; can I improve on my ProMedia setup by using the sub/amp from the Z906 and replacing the sats with a Quintet set? Or at this point, is there really no point unless I'm going to get a real amp and sub and forget about using anything from the Z906?
