Should I buy the G51?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My local Circuit City is selling the Logitech G51 5.1 system for $100 Im waiting for it to go down to about $60 before I buy. Does anyone have any experience with these speakers and is it even worth buying it at $100? Also would the Asus Xonar be a good sound card for this system?

The Xonar is a good sound card, but for a cheap surround sound system, if you have surround sound onboard, that should suffice. I have no experience with the G51.

i have the g51s. they are decent for music but are really designed for gaming (which they do really well). they are not at the same level as z5500s, but again they were designed more with gaming in mind

the g51s dont have a digital input, so a decent sound card is a good idea since you will be relying on analog. i am running an x-fi gamer and they sound good, so a xonar should do well
