I've come to the pit to ask of their almighty knowledge of all... this time about pc speakers. Seriously, I have no idea where to start. So basically I'm looking for 5.1 surround sound speakers for my bedroom for music and gaming within a price range of £100-£150 ($150-$250). So... has anyone got any decent speakers they have or know of? Please share

5.1 surround will do nothing for your music unless you get multichannel stuff. That's rare.

Also consider that you'll need a 5.1 soundcard (if you haven't already)

You really don't need surround sound for gaming. And most speakers aren't that different unless you go surround sound. For that, you'd need a surround sound card, and most music isn't mixed in 5.1. You're better off going to Best Buy or whatever is near you and buying a nice 60-100 USD set of speakers. Logitech are always a good brand, I have Logitech Z4 2.1 speakers and they sound fantastic and only cost 60 bucks.

For that, get a hi-fi instead - you need a phono out of some sort on your pc, an amp and a decent set of speakers (2.0 or 4.0), but you shouldn't need a woofer if you have quality speakers. Woofers at that kind of price range tend to be a bit naff anyways

I bought a Compaq Premier Sound second hand. it has a subwoofer which is about 75% of the size of my (large) desktop rig. It sounds wonderful, and was only £60 or so.

$250 for computer speakers?



Agreed. Save up some more money, buy a nice Hi-Fi setup, and route your computers audio through it.

I bought some 5.1 speakers think it was 30W or something for about 50£ they were from creative, my sister ended up stealing them from me, but God they sounded good. Could play really loud and the sounds was superb. 250£ for speakers holy **** you're nuts :p

Ok guys thanks for the help. I guess I will settle with 2.1 because I doubt my comp will have a 5.1 sound card.
