    Let's see, for the man that has everything?????

    I'd check out the M-Audio gear.

    ProTools HD :eek:

    I'm dying here waiting till I can afford an 1814 A/D interface and a new mixing console. Don't even get me started on microphones!

    A great set of studio reference monitors or a set of PRO headphones.

    A new surround sound system.

    A pair of 10K Raptor drives

    Another display! :D

    XServe RAID

    Fibre channel card

    Software and Games

    Try http://www.crumplerusa.com/ for some nice bags.

    http://www.radtech.us/ has the Powersleevz and Screensavers, which are a good idea. Also some nice bags there as well.

    I like the looks of the Creature or Soundstick speakers, but I'm not sure if they'd meet your standards.

    Happy money burning!

    I'm not an expert when it comes to components in a computer, but for audio it's a different story

    I'd go with a Klipsch ProMedia Ultra 5.1 system...THX Certified.
    500watt. ;)

    I currently have one of their ProMedia 4.1 systems and it sounds fantastic...I even bought another one of the 4.1's for everything from get together's to hauling two of these around for DJing at parties. Keep in mind this is coming from someone who has 4 different stereos in their room, you won't be disappointed with Klipsch.

    Ok, I'm not a powermac expert, but the PM has a digital out right?

    You need to be careful about the computer speakers you buy then as most systems are set up to use 3 1/8" jacks for analog input. I know there are a few systems out there with digital decoding built in, but if you don't get one you will have to get a decoder as well.

    Not sure about the above klipsch and digital decoding, but I know the company has quite a good rep in the computer audio area.

    Logitech Z 5500 ( i think that's the model number) those things kick. Make sure you got the space, the sub is huge.
