Okay folks, here is yet another question about the (in)famous Gateway LX6810.
When I bought this thing, I did a lot of research. That was 6 months ago. Back then, a lot of good consumer reviews were to be had. Things have obviously changed. In my seemingly never ending frustrations with Gateway tech support, I tried to get a straight answer about the included 7.1 sound system capabilities. The tech told me about a compatible 5.1 sound system (after I spent 15 minutes explaining to him what a 7.1 sound system was), and when I told him I was looking for a 7.1, he told me it wasn't supported. I asked WTH they made the computer with 7.1 capability when it wasn't supported, and he said he didn't know. Par for the course.
I checked the BB site for a 7.1 system, but the only one I could find did not seem appropriate. Is there a compatible system available, and will BB be carrying one in the foreseeable future? Also, do I need more than speakers themselves, i.e. amp/recvr.? Can this thing be incorporated into a multimedia center?
As always, all replies are appreciated.
