I dont want bookshelf speakers. Just 2.0 speakers and maybe a dedicated sound card.
The kiplish 2.0 speakers doesn't have good reviews on newegg. Anyone familiar with the SupremeFX X-FI.

I don't trust newegg reviews. Half the people have no clue what they're talking about.

just get the audioengine a2's they are small and not much bigger than your standard computer speaker. They will sound a lot better too.

http://www.audioengineusa.com/tech_stuff_a2.php


about the only thing newegg reviews are good for is to see if people received working or DOA units. A quick look at percentages will tell you how many people were happy with their purchase and how many were unhappy. That's about all they're good for. Especially when it comes to speakers. newegg doesn't sell anything really high end... they don't really breach mid-fi for that matter. And many, many people are used to $25 speakers that came with their computer or were purchased at a local computer shop so most speakers from newegg will sound better than that.

Are those better than most 2.1 speakers?

Would you get:

ASUS Rampage II Extreme Motherboard + SupremeFX X-Fi Sound Card

or

ASUS P6T Deluxe + $100 Sound Card

I just want to hear probably like half of the instruments of a song. I don't really care about audio that much. All that matters is I can hear it. So I don't need to buy $200 speakers.

My Z-10s are pretty cool for 2.0's. Don't know about sound quality though.

The touch controls and LCD rule. Good to know your FPS during games without destroying the GUI of your game.

In that case I would go back to a cheap sound card and decent 2.1 system, z-2300's or x-230's and i hope i got the numbers right...
