Price matters less than what makes you happy. Everyone has different ears and different tastes. The only time you should feel obligated to spend more money is if what you have doesn't satisfiy you and only someting more expesive has the sound you want or you deliberately strted woith the bare bones basics to get started then add compnents as you can afford them. An example is starting with a pair of speakers that can run directly off the MOBO sound, then adding a DAC and a sub later as you can afford them (assuming you even need them; not everyone does).

I agree with these. i started off with a pair of 30 dollar panasonic headphones (still have them and sound crystal clean!) and i started off with mobo sound and a pair of trust 2.1 speaker (the sub was a 5 watt 3 inch woofer lol, used to think it kicked ass, then uh the svs subs took over..) then got logitech z506 then the z906 then i got my first avr which was an old denon, then ran 5.1 off a creative sound card, which i still use on my laptop, then got my denon x8500h and ran 7.1, then i kinda carried on spending way too much money on more and more speakers and dolby atmos height modules.

Just some clarification not for every channel because that would be about 1300 pounds which i do not have right now (𝙧𝙞𝙜𝙝𝙩 𝙣𝙤𝙬 ;) ) but for maybe 7 surround channels.

Not really. It has a slight hum and you HAVE to use it on battery.

Need to fire it up again as I haven't used it in a while.
