There's a million-and-first time for everything..

post #1 of 3

.. So I'll go ahead and get straight to the point here:

The rear speakers on my Creative T6100 died one after another (damage to driver/damage to wire due to rare incident ) so I need a new speaker set..
I've looked around but honestly, everything I can find on the Dutch stores I know to look at seems to be crap. (like the T6100, my opinion now says.)

Now for some (un-)necessary info:
I have an X-Fi XtremeMusic with LM4562 op-amps and the Pax driver.
The main use for my speakers would be playing various kinds of music, mostly either along the lines of eurobeat (punchy fast beats), various electronic music, but also some classical/piano music and very rarely a bit of dubstep (too much bass for long listening though). In short, pretty varied music.

The main issue is that I can find plenty of 2.1 sets that seem nice but I really want a surround speaker set because I play (Racing sim, some FPS-) games with the same speakers and want to be able to at least have 5.1 audio in movies I watch.

The main type of file that passes through would be FLAC, obviously, since even on the T6100 I could hear the difference between high bitrate MP3 and a good FLAC file..


Now, back to the point:
What would be a good, crisp-sounding 5.1 speaker solution that still has a powerful bass when needed (the T6100 is really anemic when it comes to bass, especially <50Hz) for.. let's say a maximum of 150-175 euros? Give or take a few.

Thanks in advance for the help, I hope you'll be able to!

Why not two 2.1's?

Because first of all 2.1 computer speaker sets aren't really geared for use as rear speakers and secondly, there wouldn't be a dedicated sub/center output so I'd still not have 5.1 surround like I really want to keep.
