I want to buy a new audio system, but i have no clue what is good, I'd be listening to drum 'n' bass alot so id need something with lots of bass but with good quality still, I heard i need an amp to power a large subwoofer so i need one of those too. If someone could point out a good website or some good products that would be helpful, thanks.

Sorry if im posting in an off topic part of the forums.

Via a PC?

Not nearly enough info is given to come to a valid conclusion.

I've heard good things about Microlab speakers. Got the Solo-5C myself, the bass is pretty nice, sound quality overall very good. Mind you though, I'm not exactly an audiophile and this is the highest-end speakers I've ever bought, so I can't really compare to many others.

My brother has one of these (http://www.soundgroup.co.nz/index.php?action=product-detail&proid=925) with Wharfdale speakers. Sounds pretty good.

More important than everything else what will be the source, CD, MP3 etc if MP3 bought online don't even bother the sound quality will be crap as you will be starting with a sound that has been severely compressed

Are you going to be listening to HiFi(stereo) or looking for surround sound.
Yamaha make excellent amps for both types, but if you are looking for stereo make sure you go with really good speakers. My pick at the moment is PSB speakers out of Canada
They have a good range from budget through to "are you insane" but you do get bang for your buck.
Good luck because it is a wide open field

Yes you can unfortunately most people are too tight to then complain that the sound from their mega $'s sound system is crap. Just pointing out that quality equipment needs a quality input source not some cheap mp3 crap

Yes, but it's not something I could describe in a public forum where there are impressionable and corruptable minds... :D

Nice, but I bet they don't sell many - if you ever moved house, there would be a renovation job to do first!

Try one of those Sennheiser Hi-fi speakers.
