Ahh.. I knew that I am missing something about these...
so I can't just plug them to my PC and start playing music, because I need to connect them with an amp,right?

Thanks for letting me now that, I didn't read it anywhere on the site.

I just bought the Logitech Z623 at half-price during boxing-day (100 instead of 200 at my local store) and I'm very satisfied with them.

They are not 5.1 so maybe it's not what you are looking for...biggrin.gif

But they are pretty loud...so you won't see the difference between 2.1 and 5.1 wink.gif

You're better off setting a budget and allowing others to tell you what's the best you can get. Logitech is definitely not it.

While I'm not an audiophile, I do happen to appreciate good sound. I have this setup http://www.logitech.com/en-us/speakers-audio/home-pc-speakers/devices/speaker-system-z323 and love them. I think they sound wonderful, and you won't be paying an arm and a leg, either.

People are always content with what the have until they've tried better.

Comes down to what you're willing to pay for quality. For just a few dollars more, you could easily get Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 speakers with a much better subwoofer and much better sound. I know you can find them for 90-100 easy.

And for those with the means Active and Passive bookshelf speakers are even better.

Yea I agree. Check out the local thrift store and grab on old stereo for cheap that has an RCA input. Then just grab a couple of decent bookshelf speakers and enjoy great sound.

excuse me for bringing this up, but I just wanted to say thanks !

As some of you suggested me, I bought the M-Audio AV40 and i am completely satisfied and happy with this decision!
I thought they won't be lound enough, but it seems like I had no idea how good are the speakers nowadays.
I am also suggesting them to anyone who is looking for decent speakers at a low price.

And another thing, I also had the opportunity to test the Logitech Z623 and I was surprisingly disappointed.
I was thinking that they are awesome, but actually that 200W power is pretty messed up. the subwoofer sounds just awful, well at least for my taste.

So at first , I was about to buy the Z623 because I thought that theyw ould be loud, with great bass and etc., but it turned out that the little
AV-40s by m-audio are much much better!

So thanks again ocn:)

Yeah Logitech subs produce some pretty terrible bass.
