Basically, I'm beginning to start and plan out a system for no more than 800ish which I'm planning on buying by the end of the summer. Thing is, I'm not really sure how to go about this. Since my source is going to be a laptop would I be correct in guessing that I would need to buy a dac, integrated amp, and the actual speakers? ...and if I'm right about that, is there even the faintest possibility of getting an entire rig together for that price? Thanks for the help...I really have no idea what I'm doing.
P.S. If any of you kind souls have actual gear suggestions, that would be greatly appreciated
