The line is hard to draw.

It seems we'll take anything then as long as it didnt all come in one box...

not saying it should go one way or the other, but bringing it to attention is all.


Pez:

LOVE the DIY headphone stand
is that just a regular altoids box??? Or am I seeing a diy headphone amp?
Actually I'm a member of a headphone forum and bought it off of a member. I didn't make it but it's a cMoy. The thing is basically a reciever with built in CD Player/Radio/Tape function. But it puts out more wattage than the speakers are capable of and get's plenty loud. Only reason I haven't upgrade is because I've failed to find just a simple solution for sound card>amp>speakers.

I agree the line is hard to draw, we should have a judge and jury to make the final call, but that may be a little too complicated.
I also think there are a lot of sub par but none 'pc speaker' systems on the list but making the best out of what you have is a step in the right direction and shows one's intent to be the best audiophile he/she can be. and that 'should' result in a better HIFI speaker community.
And I love my LEGO headphone stand . I'll never let my LEGOs go. Nevah!

why can't you take those to college? they would be perfect next to your desk to increase surface area for books and stuff.

because the dorm room has two people per room and is no where near big enough for it really.

I disagree.

As said by Soloz, you don't have to spend a fortune (in my case, nothing) to have a system that far surpasses any one-box solution.

If you allow basic computer speakers it (yes, Z-5500's are basic computer speakers IMO) completely ruins the meaning of the speaker club, because it would nearly allow anyone on the site to join the club. It would be like having a tuner car club with members owning Honda Accords...

I don't think I'm alone when I say - I don't read this thread for "add me I have Z-5500 THX DIGITAL speakers".

(this coming from an outside view, as I'm not even a member - I've posted my setup but never bothered to take pictures)

EDIT: Ugh they (Logitech) rate them @ 10%THD... driven that hard wouldn't it be considered clipping? I'm sure it would be audible...

Apologies for my absence the past few days folks, work + mini-trip = absolutely no time for checking up on things at all.

One notable change will be occurring within the next few days, along with a re-clarification of membership parameters.

I will say for the time being that this club's guidelines were developed with the absolute best of intentions. No, we are not being elitist. It is quite the contrary; the basic idea behind "blocking" your basic pc-oriented speakers was to simply encourage members to explore higher levels of quality, and you can be 100% assured that there are better options on there for slightly more money (Logitech Z5500 vs. AV123 entry-level is the finest example of this). You do not need to be a member to explore this thread's discussion, which means the knowledge of exactly what can be defined as "higher fidelity" is not some hidden secret exclusive to OCNSC members alone.

Thanks for your patience gents.

No problem at all, if discussion needs to take place over the parameters, then that's just what we are going to do .

I have received your message, I will follow up for you as soon as possible.

After my last post I figured I should actually join and show what you can possibly get for FREE if you search around (and get lucky over the past 4-5 years). Far surpassing any 'computer speakers' and many HTIB... I know I'm a rare exception, but I'm sure you could do rather well spending far less than a set of Z-5500's cost.

Sansui AU-8500, found while working at an electronics recycling plant.
~60lbs. 0.1%THD, 65WPC @ 8ohms, 100WPC @ 4ohms, both channels driven.



Pioneer SX-990, 27WPC. Pioneer PD-5700 for cd's


Utah floorstanders.


Binding posts (if you can call it that )


Computer setup


*the Utah's* If someone can help me with model/year that would be great; I have NO clue. I got them from my dad, they are about the same vintage as the SX-990... They are 3-way: 8" bass driver, 4" midrange and tweeter. Non-removable grills. The missing label only read "acoustic suspension system". No idea what the rheostat does (nor any audible change).
