BTW, I've been watching and waiting for some PC audio company to get smart and release a set of speakers with 6 analogs (5.1 again) as well as digital inputs, eliminating the need to either compromise by picking what you want to do with the PC or spend major moola on an HT setup. So far nobody's fully stepped up to the plate. In fact, on the analog side, Creative's the only ones even close, with the 5300's, right now.

This is probably because there are very few soundcards that can do 5.1 analog output, most taking the front/rear (and maybe a sub) connections that have been more or less standard for several years now, and ingnoring the center (other than providing it as Dolby Prologic mode mix with the front signals) discrete channel.
