Thread: Speakers!!

    You got the sound card capable of it right? Cause creative makes the worst speakers compared to the other companies. Its almost literally a joke I read a review on the 5300's. Someone opened up one of the speakers and that BIG BIG SUBWOOFER is actually just a huge open box and the speaker is like 3 inches. The speaker that actually show is just there for its looks but does operate. Also the wattage that the speakers say they are capable of is not true because inside the speakers (opened up again) it has the max wattage which is half of what they say in the specs! So when you say not impressed with quality and you prefere the altec lansing 2.1's. I guess the 2.1's actually make better quality.

    Out of those speakers i'd go with the Abit 5.1 because its a cheap 5.1 channel setup, and its great stuff, and i jsut wouldnt be able to bring myself to spend like $400 on speakers.

    Now now now in situation like this ebay becomes your best friend. I got myself a pair of altec lansing ACS56 4.1's. I got them for 50 bucks! Of course I didn't but them used. I bought them brand new and from a power seller one that had there ebay store and with over 10K feedback.

    As for spending 400 on a speakers? I totalyl agree. I can spend 400 on a video card I let the price drop to 300.

    Hehe im seriously considering purchasing the Z-560 for $373AUD.
    But for a few pc speaker reviews, good old dan has shone more light on the subject

    Im not using them for serious gaming hehe lol, i would be pretty stupid to purchase them just for that. We (my family) already have a home theatre setup. This is just for my bedroom.
    Im still considering my purchase, but at the moment you (fellow tweaktown peeps) have swung me towards the Logitech side :D

    Yeh Logitech, Altec Lansing, and Klipsch will all be of higher quality than Abit, Abit is more towards the value side, actually its probably the cheapest 5.1 channel setup ive seen (that doesnt suck).

    Now when i get these great speakers, if i get them. ( as i need to purchase a fridge aswell :/)
    I'll want to purchase a new sound card, or maybe my current one will suffice. ?
    I'd like a Sound Blaster Audigy Platinum, need the remote :D

    You have a sound blaster live 5.1 right now. It'll hold. Now as for buying an audigy I dought you'll notice a difference in sound quality but you buy it if you want to. Only the true sound enthusiest can notice a difference. Even then it's only very little.

    RDR is right. Get 2.1 speakers. Logitech makes a z340 available in US for way under $50 USD and sounds great too.

    Well rather than the sound card itself i think the main quality issue comes from the speakers. With the SB Live & SB audigy both using a high quality 5.1 set, or even high quality 2.1 set you arent going hear any difference whatsoever that is detectable by humans.

    Very true, i dont think ill purchase the audigy platinum. I only wanted it for the remote :D
    As for speakers, from your replies, 2.1 is just as good as 4.1 ?
    I was planning to buy either the Altec Lansing 641's or the Logitech Z-560's.
    But as for 2.1 sound, what would be the best in the Altec range, or any other high range audio specialists?
