    In a few weeks I move into my new apartment and my setup will consist of the following:

    A 30" LCD screen, my PC and Sky (May get + box)

    What is the best all round solution speaker wise? I want to be able to get the best sound possible from the PC via the Audigy 2 for games and movies but I would also like to connect the Sky box for pro logic sound. I was considering something like the Logitech Z-680 but I'm unsure if they will take a feed from Sky..

    Any advice and or suggestions would be gratefully received.

    PC specs incase - Athlon 64 3400+ (Clawhammer), Shuttle SN85G4v2, 1024 Geil DDR400, XFX 6800GT and Soundblaster Audigy 2 - Connected to LCD via DVI.

    The Z680 is a nice system IMX, with both DD and DTS decoding. It has optical and coax SPD/IF, 5.1 analog inputs and 2 stereo inputs which I'd have thought would take Sky assuming you can split L+R signals from the Sky box's outputs.

    That sounds ideal then. I did notice on the Logitech site these have been replaced with the S5500's but I can't find any stockists.

    Assuming I went with the Z680's would I be able to watch my movies in DD and DTS via my PC??
