Request for Suggestions....


OSNN Senior Addict
I am looking into getting a decent speaker system for my computer and I was wondering what some of you thought were good speakers. I don't want to sink a whole lot of money into it...around $100 is the most I want to put into it. I was looking at a 6 Piece Creative Inspire 5.1 5200 for $63. Just wondering if anyone else knew of any other good setups. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.


I use Creative's 6.1 6700 speakerset, at the time that
i bought it, which is a couple of months ago, it cost me
$125. It's most probably a lot cheaper now. It gives
me really good sound, a nice improvement over the 5.1 version.
Combined with an audigy 2 (which i also have) it really
gives you high quality sound, for a very nice price.

buy the logitech THX series... you can get it online for around 100-130 dollars :) just look around... AMAZING sound really... and looks kewl too... thats the 4.1 I am talking about btw...

I would highly recommend a superior 4.1 setup to lesser 5.1 or 6.1 setups...
i would recommend a better 4.1 than a lesser 5.1/6.1 too.

more speakers only means one thing... you need more places to put them :p

i personally use the cambridge soundworks fps1000 4.1 speaker set with an sb live value, and the quality is superb for what I need.


I use these lil cheap Labtecs. I dont know the model, but I got 2 speakers and a subwoofer. I only paid $19.99 for them. And to my suprise, they sound really good.

I have the Logitech 5.1 Z-640's. Very nice, and superior to the Creative's in that price range. They list for $100, and can be had for about $67. They have separate volume controls for the front and back which the Creative's lack. Very nice for quickly adjusting the balance. I'm slightly prejudiced though, as I will never spend another dime on anything Creative.

I would buy 5.1's though, as that is where things are going.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
