    Currently using NAD C316bee amp with Wharfedale Diamond 210 speakers.
    Sound quality is far superior to the logitech and harman kardon 'computer speakers' I've used before.

    Re: QOTW: Which PC speakers are you using?

    I *could* use my surround system (based around a Sony STR-DN1040 receiver and some KEF speakers) as the PC is connected to it. I rarely do, however. Usually, when I want to listen to audio on the PC I'm using my old Icemat Siberia headphones. But to be brutally honest, these days I mostly don't use sound on my PC at all. After a noisy day at the office I relish the silence ...even when gaming.

    Same.

    I've got an old Creative Inspire P7800 7.1 speaker system up in my loft somewhere, don't use it so I don't disturb the family.

    Completely agree. Why spend £xxxx on a state of the art gaming rig, with a monitor that makes your eyes bleed with joy, only to let your ears listen to half-assed audio reproduction.

    So I have a pair of Adam T5V studio monitors. State of the art, astonishing audio accuracy. My ears cry with pleasure as if the singing of angels washes over them. And gun fire. And explosions.

    Seriously, upgrading from my Logitech 4.1 system to the Adams was the best decision. Music, video and games sound phenomenal. Exactly as the creators meant it to be.

    Re: QOTW: Which PC speakers are you using?

    As I'm using my PC less for gaming these days, I retried my trusty old Logitech Z5500's and replaced them with a pair of Wharfedale DS-2's - good swap.

    Currently running Edifier R1850's, they're a massive upgrade from my old Creative speakers. No complaints, they're amazing for my budget.

    Re: QOTW: Which PC speakers are you using?

    Have an audio system composed of Onkyo TX-NR757 receiver running in 5.1 with Klipsch Icon KC-25 for my center channel, 2 Klipsch Icon KF-28 Dual 8" floorstanding for my front R/L, 2 Klipsch Icon KB-14 shelf speakers for my rear R/L with a Klipsch Synergry Sub-10 as <surprise> my subwoofer. At least for my main desktop attached to a curved screen 55" 4K Samsung with HDR (JU7500). My wife on the other hands runs an old logitech Z-5500 system on her rig attached to a 47" 1080P panel.

    A Denon AVR-X1200W with a 7.1 set of Auna speakers in a Dolby Atmos configuration. Has decent sound.

    Re: QOTW: Which PC speakers are you using?

    I used to run the aux out through a midrange Sony mini system to its speakers. When the mini system died I couldn't find any computer speakers that sounded as good so got myself a Class D amp (aimed at cars really,) from Amazon for less than £30 to drive them instead.

    Yep. M-Audio AV 30 here, plugged into a Focusrite Saffire Pro14. Nice solid little speakers that bring out all the detail with more than enough punch for nearfield monitoring without the flabby bottom and midrange disconnect that you get from pc 2.1 systems. Great for music, films and games. I love 'em.

    I've got bigger monitors in the room but I hardly ever use them for music recording stuff and never for games (there's also my hifi downstairs for listening to music). If I had no neighbours then I suppose I'd be more likely to use the bigger stuff but even then I think the M-Audio do a better job of presenting detail, which is essential for mixing and pretty useful for gaming too.

    Used to use a pair of Speedlink surround headphones for gaming, which I loved but they have now physically fallen apart. Also the immersion of headphones is a double-edged sword as I can't hear the doorbell, phone, police loudhailer, nuclear apocalypse, etc with those on.

    Re: QOTW: Which PC speakers are you using?

    Creative Sound Blaster X Kratos, nothing really that special about them but they are good enough for gaming, the bass is tight and they go louder than what I need in the house, so yeah, great haha! I also like the separated controller for the power, in the past I've had it where the power and volume have been on one of the speakers themselves which limits where you can put them to a point.
