I will go for logitech.....Creative speakers are good if you want to listen to those old classical music....Yeah even the G550 and the S750.....The price you pay for them, for that price investing on a logitech will be much better.....

I don't know what you mean by "Creative speakers are good if you want to listen to those old classical music".

They're superior speakers, and they look like they're worth the money. But I'm picky, so I'd be the one buying them.

Classical music would be superior on a digital monitor set like the Edirol MA-15D, in fact, unless you are a bass freak, I find most music superior on real speakers.

lol creative speakers are not superior.....Have you tried playing a movie with DTS in a creative set? and have you tried the same with a logitech or Edifier? The creative set grunts a lot...It cant handle high frequency sounds....Where the logitech is far superior compared to the creative in movies and games...For slow music a creative set will prevail.......

I was speaking within the context. Out of context, then there's Klipsch, for example. But for what's apparently available to him, the Creative speakers have a bigger subwoofer, a wider frequency response, and the THX Certification (which does help a little).

Personally, I prefer my Altec Lansing VS4121's and I'd never buy Creative speakers.

Well I went in planning to buy the stuff and came out with this instead haha (im always doing it). The Speakers nearly blew my room apart. Games sound IMMENSE, played Doom 3 and crapped my pants nearly. I hear things I never used to with the soundcard which is what I kinda expected lol. Ended up spending over £250 rofl.

Yeah it seems that way, the sound is immense. I need to set it up in my room tho. Any guides on mounting them to the wall, as in where to put the speakers?
