Default Suggestions for new surround for pc?

Z5500 control pod finally bit the dust after 10+ years of service. Any suggestions? Maybe some 7.1 action?

Don't think anyone else has really thrown there hat into the ring on these

This is their latest,

other than using a regular amp/AV receiver and home surround speakers the Logitech's are tough to beat

Peaked at that one for a bit. Bluetooth woulda been a nice feature to add in there.
May end up going with a Home Theater reciever but need to do some research on DTS/DD XYZ decoding first.
And also the possibility of a 7.1 setup.

I'm using a Yamaha surround sound receiver via I.R. output from my motherboard and Martin Logan speakers. Totally rocks the house man.

Had a senior moment there. Not i.r it's the optical output.
