About Me

  1. Thanks in advance, all your input is much appreciated, if this is the wrong forum I also apologize. To all of the audiophiles out there, I have a dream, of playing my music in my backyard at my pool, from my home computer in the kitchen, using my cell phone and home network. I can already do the phone part and control the media player on the computer using my android phone. MY QUESTION: How do I take my Gateway (i7, 8 gb RAM, 3.4 GHz) desktop and wire outdoor speakers to it? Please, I can use a lot of help here. I promise I’ve tried to do my own research, for quite awhile, but the summer is coming up, I don’t want to buy something I don’t need and have to Ebay it later. Considerations: Budget: < $1000. Since the debut of Napster I’ve always tried to rip/download 320 kbps, but in no way do I pretend to be an audiophile. I’ve decided on wired speakers, 2 of them, unless anyone feels wireless is good enough (though I would worry more about somebody walking away with portable speakers, nor do I wish to carry them out every time we’re outside). I just need some decent speakers for about 1/3 an acre. I thought about having 2 omni speakers at opposite corners. I suspect I’ll need an amplifier/receiver to connect somehow to the CPU, please, don’t be too technical but what would be a good product? If one could go as far as shopping for me or providing a link…even better, that’s how lost I am. I know nothing about specifications. Will the outdoor speakers need a power supply? What's a "good enough" underground speaker wire? I have some brochures for Sonos system. Thanks in advance, all your input is much appreciated, if this is the wrong forum I also apologize.
