Amazon.com: logitech 2.1
I did say about 3 times in my original post im from the UK... and mentioned it in subsequent post * Face Palm *

Also i'd like something rather loud without loosing sound quality...
as mentioned i'm willing to spend upto ~£150... maybe convinced on more if it is an amazing system...

That seems pretty rude of you. A little reading on people's part can take them a long way.
The guy was asking for help, a recommendation.

As for the OP's dilemma. There isn't too many 2.1 PC speakers in that price range. Usually cheaper. Corsair's new speakers aren't bad but a tad overpriced.

Thanks, I'll have a look around and check out reviews and stuff, just a lot of the quality of metal music gets lost at high volumes and just becomes static so i didn't want to buy something that doesnt do the music justice or make tv/gaming sound awful

Generally metal music is recorded very poorly, plus newer music falls into the "loudness war" usually.

The bitrate and format of your music will matter a lot too. Low bitrates will clip highs and lows and causing distortion.

You could get a set of AV40s and then add a sub to it later on. Much better than anything Logitech offers.

You aren't going to get musically inclined speakers with logicrap (100% agree with aksthem1) so go with proper bookshelf speakers with decent driver/tweeter design and yes 2.1 for your budget/needs sounds about right ^^ Since u in the UK hit Gumtree for used audio hardware and am sure some gems are waiting to be fished out

Examples

(used, good buy for the $$ IMO)
NAD 3020e Stereo Amplifier 60 quid
http://www.gumtree.com/p/for-sale/am...3020e/89241033

Denon Stereo Amplifier PMA 250 III 20 quid
http://www.gumtree.com/p/for-sale/de...0-iii/86217413


(brand new)

Roth Oil 10 75 quid
http://www.superfi.co.uk/index.cfm/p...roduct_ID/7615

Wharfedale Diamond 9.1s 100 quid
http://www.superfi.co.uk/index.cfm/p...roduct_ID/2197

add a decent 8-10" sub later
