    generally I'd get a headset anyway, does mean turning off your speakers when you want to use it but it greatly reduced the issues of feedback loops.

    Dammit, the speakers are good, does that logitech mic not noise cancel?

    When the system automatically turned it into a link, it left the last ) out of it, this should work though:

    I too have a 5.1 system - and struggled for ages to get a decent mic - infact for quite a while I had a logitech headset round my neck - just to use the mic!!!
    I switched to a sharkoon analogue mic that plugged into my soundcard via 3.5mm lead - used that for a year but it was total poo. Eventually the sharkoon failed (really thin cable) and I was faced with needing a replacement - well that was 3 months ago. I bought the mic you are talking about and its been excellent. I use it for 4/5 man skype while playing WoW and my buddies tell me I have never sounded so crystal - and no feedback from the speakers. Thoroughly recommend it!!
