Visiting the AXPONA show in Atlanta was the clincher for moving to a computer audio system. I heard the improvement over mid-price CD playback, saw the convenience of having my library of music instantly available for listening, and generally saw the trend that was coming. I was also able to hear several models of speakers and do some rough comparisons. The opportunity wasn't there to do extensive listening but it was possible to audition several speakers in my price range and, maybe, arrive at a short list of strong candidates.

I also attended a couple of seminars at the show. Particularly helpful was Jim Smith's presentation on his "Get Better Sound" series of books and DVDs. During the seminar he mentioned a website where he had found lots of helpful info on computer audio. You're on that site now.
