What are people using?  

 

I bought a set of 5.1 Logitech's about 8 years ago just to replace some cacky ones i'd had for a while. I was actually blown away by how good a quality they were. to the point where i've been patching them up rather than replacing them by rewiring them every time the main input wire gets damaged. 

I think it started off about 8ft long and know it's about 2 foot.

 

I just can;t let them go :p

sucks to be in Canada lol.... these have great reviews... 

I realize a good receiver is going to cost a few dollars... and that's why I wanted to get a good starter set up then add a receiver later..

 

 

WHen I use the US website... no escape for me... ohwell.. 

  Order Summary

 

Items: $349.00 Shipping & handling: $135.57 Total before tax: $484.57 Estimated tax to be collected: $0.00 Import Fees Deposit $72.49 Order total: $557.06

 

Those are just speakers, you have nothing to drive them....you would need a receiver.  You are better off with the 400 klipsch with the pioneer from tiger if you are looking to be in that price range. 

 

A good setup will put you around 2-3000, a great setup between 5 and 10000, excellent...well the sky is the limit...Here is an example of good to excellent (this is just a receiver setup http://www.amazon.co...00COO4OCU?psc=1). You are still in the small budget area.

sorry, I was just putting things into perspective.  I would think that the $400 system with the Klipsch speakers would be a much better setup, but I do advise that you listen to them first.  I wish that you could listen to computer speakers in the same setting as you can with the home audio stuff.

I know out of your price range, but I really like this setup:

And match with a decent reciever like this:

You will be very very happy with the sound quality, power, and capability of the setup.  This is a low to mid range setup, not budget area, not quite mid.  This will kick ass out of any bose setup, IMHO.

yup this thread was quite an experience.. I learned a lot ...

 

and guys i'm going to settle for the Z906... it came today and i'm loving it. Better than the bose if you ask me.. and cheaper..

 

using a laptop - kind of dated too.. This Z906 is making me want to get a sound card lol...
