New Surround Speakers

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
So after god knows how many years with my atp3, I've decided it's time to go surround.
PC room is pretty small 1.5m x 3.5m (sorry, don't speak feet ).
Using the onboard 7.1 on the Asrock Z68 Extreme4.
The quality and volume on the atp3 are good enough for me, looking for something similar in a surround configuration, so not going to buy something uber-expensive.
In light of all of the above, any recommendations?
Thanks!

I use a Logitech Z506 5.1 system and It sounds great. My room is pretty small as well but they are perfect for me, amazing sound and extremely loud. I only have it on a quarter volume personally.

I paired them with a Soundblaster X-Fi Titanium.

Relatively inexpensive as well, great quality set. I recommend it.

Err such a small space stick to decent/good 2.0/2.1 rather than more trouble than worth mediocre 5.1?

There is nothing mediocre about it.

There is no trouble either.

Yep when budget/space is limited best to aim solid 2.1

So I got into my usual hardware dealers place, saw a z906 there. Got into my car, ears still ringing, looked at the rear view mirror and there's a huge box with z906 on it. I have no memory of what happened in the store, all I remember is me putting some music on to check the speakers...

I have this for sale. I don't have enough rep to sell it here, but if your interested let me know. It blows all the logitech offerings away. You will be amazed at the sound of the little speakers and how much bass the sub puts out.

http://www.polkaudio.com/homeaudio/rm2008/index.php?s=rm95

Here is the sub http://www.polkaudio.com/homeaudio/psw/index.php?s=psw111

I would let them go for 250$ plus shipping. You would need to get a receiver though for these. These are not home theater in a box speakers, they sound great.

PM me if your interested
