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
