There you go. Puts any pc speaker setup to shame. 150 watts of bass in a bedroom is plenty. Have fun.

My warranty was expired, but they sent me a replacement anyway. Not only that, but due to a combination of two things lining up wrong and me not getting the replacement they shipped, they sent another one! That was just ridiculous. However, they did downgrade me from Z2300s to Z623s, and they wanted my Z2300s to shipped to them first as well. I had mixed feelings about it from the start (I saw mixed as they took care of me outside warranty, but downgraded me), but after they went out of their way to replace them the second time, I can't really hold much against them after that.

You guys sure like ragging on the Z5500. What you're forgetting is price is ease of use.

Sure, you can go to parts express, order a bunch of drivers and crossovers, fire up the table saw, and build a kickass system. No doubt about it. But, that's like spending months in a garage building up a kit car and have it out-lap a stock Mustang/Vette/BMW. Sure, it's possible, but not EVERYONE has the time, expertise, tools, space, or interest to do it.

I paid $300 for my Z5500 back in 2006. To this day, I haven't found a cheaper, more powerful, and better sounding system (again, must meet all 3 criteria). I challenge anyone to do the same. Is it the best sounding system? Not by a long shot. But for gaming, and occasional movie watching on the PC, nothing beats it. I have a bunch of other audio gear, but I'm not lugging them out every time I fire up flight sim.

You can get a pair of near field monitors for music, but they're no good for gaming (except maybe sim city?) or multi channel movies.

You do know that parts express sell completed speaker systems etc.. they aren't just a parts store....
Also power has nothing to do with sound quality and actually, the Dayton Audio setups are actually more powerful lols.,
The expertise required is plugging in cables.....

When did I say parts express only carry parts? I simply said you can purchase individual components there. In fact, the 3" drivers in Z5500 satellites were sold there, and the realistic rating was about 14 watts with a crappy 87 db/watt iirc. How they got the 105db THX certification is beyond me.

My challenge still stands though, find a system that's better than the Z5500, overall, for less price. Even grabbing parts off Craigslist I couldn't do it, though of course, I ended up with a system that sounded much better.
