Hi all, Im fairly new to all this, but gonna take the plunge anyway...

Have an asrock 330 ht-bd on order (being delivered as we speak) and was seeking to understand what option do I have as far as speakers are concerned.

I would love to drive speakers off the asrock directly. Is it even possible? What would be an example (speaker set model and links if at all possible).

Is the above setup (from asrock, via S/PDIF (Optical) directly to the speakers, w/out an AV amp in between) possible with such speaker sets as the HKTS20 or others? Which ones for example?

I think you got the idea of my ... issue. Any help would be much appreciated!
