    Re: QOTW: Which PC speakers are you using?

    Replaced my old Edifier R1600 II's with Logitech Z333's. Mostly because the Edifiers were terrible with RF noise induction, even though I otherwise liked the sound quality. Thankfully the Z333's don't have that problem, but the volume wheel is a bit scratchy and wobbly when you use it. Still fairly decent for a pretty cheap set of speakers, though.

    My studio setup is Creative T20's, great speakers.

    My man cave has a Creative T7900 7.1 setup, had it many years and just never replaced them as they still work well and sound good.

    None.

    I prefer headphones as it's easier to hear everything and not have to worry about bothering anyone else with the volume at the same time.

    Re: QOTW: Which PC speakers are you using?

    I'm using the same Logitech Z-5500 for about 14 or 15 years. The LCD on the control panel is very dim but still legible. The speakers can still rattle the neighbor's windows.

    Dali Oberon On-Wall speakers driven by a Denon PMA-50 Digital Integrated Amplifier.
    I like good sound

    Re: QOTW: Which PC speakers are you using?

    At the moment I'm using some crappy plastic speakers but I'm looking to splash out on a set of Edifier S350DB or a pair of Edifier R1280db's

    Re: QOTW: Which PC speakers are you using?

    I'm using an old Labtec 2.1 set. I've had them long enough that the sticker with the model number faded & fell off :-D

    Re: QOTW: Which PC speakers are you using?

    I'm still using a set of Logitech Z-2300 2.1 200w RMS speakers which I bought in 2006. Best purchase I have ever made, now I think about it, tech wise. They've lasted far longer than I thought they would, and still sound plenty good enough for games and films.

    Re: QOTW: Which PC speakers are you using?

    I'm using a pair of Mission MX1's with an old Teac amp fed by the optical output on the Creative sound card. Works fine for me, as I basically play Planet Rock when i'm on the PC, I don't game.

    Re: QOTW: Which PC speakers are you using?

    Certainly not Creative T6300 5.1 speakers as they failed a week after their Currys 12 month warranty ran out and despite Creative offering a 2 year warranty on their UK products, they refused to honour it as I bought the speakers new from the Currys ebay outlet rather than their online store. Both scum bag companies.

    Re: QOTW: Which PC speakers are you using?

    I have an antique three speaker Arowana setup.
    Cost £30 or less from Scan about 20 years ago.
    Good solid units with very effective woofer unit.
    A whole 16W. Compare that with a Logitech unit I noted yesterday at 240W peak (in old money).
    I guess the "down firing subwoofer" is so the ground shakes, rather than you.

    I have to admit that I rarely use it, as I need a headset for "noise contention" in the living room. A surround sound headset is my next buy...

    Logitech Z-5500 system. It can still rattle the windows if needs be. Never felt the need to replace it so I have certainly got my money's worth from it.

    Re: QOTW: Which PC speakers are you using?

    Much like my long in the tooth monitor from last week, I'm rocking my trusty old Dell 5650 surround system. Apart from the hefty hum when I'm not playing anything, I've never had any complaints about them.

    Yamaha NX-50 Desktop Speakers for general use and Sennheiser HD650 via an ODAC for a better experience.

    The same here, indeed not had speakers for many years now.

    I used AKG K550s for a few years, connected through an Asus Xonar Essence STX but, have recently upgraded to an Audiolab M-DAC and Shure SRH1540s. I almost exclusively listen to CD quality music on my PC, rather than games and videos, so the hifi emphasis works well for me.
