    Home audio, that is, for DVD playback.

    Nope. Can't beat a good component DVD player.

    Any decent HTPC will absolutely blow away a stnadalone dvd player for
    picture quality, if it is setup correctly. But for the audio, a PC cant
    touch even an inexpensive 5.1 discrete system.

  4. Yeah:
    A fast PC with lottsa hard disk space
    PowerDVD
    Soundblaster Audigy2 sound card
    Logitech Z680 speakers

    Beats many a home theatre system

    Then please elaborate. No PC could ever come close in sound to my main HT,
    and the PQ and tweaking possibilities that a decent HTPC can do cannot be
    matched by a standalone player.

    Which statement do you not agree with?

    Do you own an HTPC?

    Do you own a HT?

  8. The only reason you don't get better video quality from a PC is most of time
    you don't have component output on the video card, most video cards to
    composite. So the reality of it, depends on how your outputing the video
    signal, more than what you are using.
    Modern sound card do just as way a good stand alone sound system.
