For my desktop I've got a sub/sat combination (self-powered) hooked up to the sound card on one output and a line from another output connected to the AUX input on a amp/receiver and some bookshelf speakers. Most of the time it's configured as a 4.1 and that works quite well. Lots of ways to get there.

Dick, I haven't the foggiest notion of what you just said!

Sometimes we have everything we need, the trick is to find it. Your fix did not cost you a penny. I THINK YOU HAVE A VERY GOOD SON
Enjoy your music,

Thanks for the heads up concerning the sound--the monitored sound while editing vs the presentation sound. One factor you neglected to address was the "selective hearing" component, which depends heavily on whether my wife is talking to me or not!
As for the computer sound, my most recent computer setup includes a sound-bar, which I have found to give surprisingly better sound than the muffled sounding mid-range speakers I had before that. The final arbiter is when playing the completed DVD through our television with the sound routed through our Denon-JBL sound system. It really improves on the computer sound, but I'm sure my aging ears are still missing a lot!
As for the improving vision thing, yes, the same was told to me at my last vision exam. My latest glasses have less long-range correction now than my last pairs did! However, an additional twist is that I have cataracts, which will eventually require surgery. My concern is that I am used to doing my close-up work (e.g., at the computer) without glasses and driving, viewing movies, etc., with glasses. I have to make sure that my vision after the surgery will be the same--close-up without glasses, long-distance with, which is the opposite of what most patients are corrected to.

Dean, you and I are a matched set. Not only did I need weaker glasses, but I was also told I was just beginning to develop cataracts. Not enough yet for surgery. My mother had cataracts removed and her vision improved enormously, though she thought it smart to wander around her house immediately following surgery and tried to walk through a sliding glass door. No harm done except to her dignity.

A funny story about cataracts - my friend's mother needed the surgery but kept putting it off. In the meantime, she wanted the living room painted. She picked out the color yellow that she wanted and even though both of her daughters tried to talk her out of it, she insisted that was what she wanted. Well, after she had the surgery, she then wanted to know why no one told her how bright the color was!

I assume the living room was toned down very quickly.

I had cataract surgery 2 years ago. I was shocked
at how bright colors were. Al the way home from
surgery, I was wow, oohing & ahing, it was
amazing. You loose the sight so slowly you don't
realize what you are missing. The interoccular
lens is a wonderfull thing. I remember when
cataract's were Bad! Bad! Bad!

My husband will have to have the surgery sooner rather than later, and he's looking forward to it. There's little in the way of surgery that people actually look forward to.
P.S. Isn't it wonderful how a conversation starts with one thing, goes to another and yet another? Before you know it, we'll be discussing Custer's Last Stand.

Custer would have won if he didn't have Cataract's.

By cracky, Don, I believe you're right!
