    Re: QOTW: Which PC speakers are you using?

    I have some Edifiers speakers that I've not used in years. I prefer my AKG K712pro headphones though I have toyed with the idea of swapping those out for some Sony WH1000XM3 wireless headphones just for the convenience of them.

    Perhaps Hexus should put speakers and headphones as a system option as part of our profiles PC spec? I mean we have the following options, and speakers are as important as the rest of the kit.

    Re: QOTW: Which PC speakers are you using?

    i , too have 9-10yr old logitech 5.1 speakers. i cant remember the number but not the 506. mine have only the one wired remote control with output jack on it. It has worked out pretty well. only downside for me is it had no digital connection. i have looked to upgrade them every 2yrs for 8yrs and stay with them. what i wanted was 3times what i felt like paying for computer speakers.my other computer is even older 2.1 set up. but i do not do anything but research and browser embedded videos.

    Re: QOTW: Which PC speakers are you using?

    I used to use big Logitech 2.1 speaker (forgot the model name) but since I started to use a headset, nothing beats it. The sound that you get from headsets is way better than any speakers.
    Of course, that means only I get to enjoy the sound, not the others.
    For home cinema, I have Denon AV receiver connected to HTPC with JBL 7.1 for Atmos surround sound.
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    Like you moved your mobile phone too close to unshielded amplified speakers?
