For 5.1, the Logitech Z-5400s are very very very nice for my money...

For 2.1, I like the Logitech Z-2300.

Both of these have great sound, a nice amount of bass, and the Z-5400 has good control features.

Thats a tad high price range. I was thinking more like $110. Could I get some thing decent for that price on that list?

Ahh i have those and trying to get rid of them there ohk for mvoies and games but if your out for music go for the z-5500 which is what im going to now. Dont get me wrong x-530 sound good at low volumes but crank it a bit and they disort like no other.

I have the z-5500's, and they sound good, and get pretty loud before really distorting, but im just really let down on the subs performance. For a "long throw" 10" sub... its lacking big time! Its really not much of a long throw sub by my standards. Also it claims to be 1000watt max. Pfff, i doubt they even max out 500-600watts. Let alone 1k.

For a gamer and moderate music fan, i guess they are ok. But i feel they should have more to them for the price.

I didnt really want to bust my budget. They seem to be a big improvement from my $5 no name brand speakers .
