Logitech Z5500 vs ??? - Page 2

post #11 of 21
The only thing that compares to the z5500s is the Klipsch Promedia Ultra 5.1 but I too was warded off by many complaints of the units dying, I have the 2.1 version of those and love them to death, I am also getting the z5500s in about a month, hope you like them

Wow, thats completely untrue, there is a HUGE difference in sound between the ZS and the X-fi... and how wouldnt you take advantage of the x-fi with 5.1 speakers? wow to sum it up this post made no sense.

The bass on the z-5500s is great for a computer system, it shakes my house, i can hear it outside, its great, pair that with the xtrememusic and the 24bit crystalizer and tweak the EQ to your style of music and these babies shine bright, I love these speakers and the X-fi...i suppose the above poster isnt an audiophile so he wouldnt notice the difference...because trust me and sccr and everyone else that has one, it is BIG.

If I am not mistaken, you have a digital output on your mobo. if so then you can run that to the speakers instead of the 1/8" jacks.

Nearly all recorded music is only recorded in 2 channel (left + right). Honestly, if you tried both sound cards and didn't see much of a difference, then you weren't using the settings correctly.
