I posted a thread over at MacRumors asking about a 5.1/6.1 box to use with my mini, any comments or anything to add [usb audio card for mini?] would be greatly appreciated!

Klipsch would always be my first choice, but they're just expensive, and the wife wasn't that giving after I already went ahead and ordered the 50" plasma behind her back. Laughing

You have a couple of options, but given your budget, I'd suggest Polk. Outpost.com is clearing out their R-series speakers for obscenely low prices. The R30 towers, which used to sell at $400/pair are currently $40 each. Add a CSi25 center channel from eBay for around $100 shipped and a pair of R15 surrounds (or you could even use another 2 R30 towers if you like) for about $80 and you have a great matched system, sans subwoofer, for a bit over $250. Add a STF-1 sub from HSU Research and you have a very, very nice system for around $550 that will be tough to match by anything else under $1000.

I added a Yamha HTR-5930 receiver with 2 optical inputs for $190 and I have one rockin' 5.1 setup for a very reasonable price.
