Are the Logitech Z-5500 worth it? - Page 3

post #21 of 48
if its for pc gaming its fine. but if you plan on most other things an amp and bookshelf speakers would be better. plus you could add to it and make it a 5.1

eyefinity and 5.1 sound is almost unfair to someone with one monitor and a 2.1 system.

how about 2.0? lol. i seem to do ok. but i kinda agree. comming from a logitech 5.1 makes a difference but you learn to compensate

Simple answer, no.

If you want 5.1 on that budget, get a HTiB set from amazon.

Well you can look into Klispch Pro-Media series 2.1 / 4.1 / 5.1 pick your poison

i have listen to both and i love the bass and the sound of the Klipsch speaker better then the z5500

The answer to your question in my opinion is no, don't get the Z5500's and stick with your current speakers.
Nice list of upgrades too, I hope you enjoy them!

- GTX460 Physx/F@H

And I was wondering if I should lower the SSD and get the Z-5500's.

Currently got an Auzentech X-Fi Bravura with a Logitech X-540 5.1 Speaker set, would the change be worth it to pay 252€ for brand new set of Z-5500's? or should I just go buy the 120Gb vertex and keep the new RAM too?
there are really good and impressive if you set them up correctly(digital connection, correct settings, good card, etc)
the only downside is that you really need the right place to enjoy them.

FYI.
The neighbours reported me to the council for noise disturbance.
got a nice letter! from them

Loud does not equal good sound quality. Anything will get loud. Doesn't make it good.

on the other hand, though the Z-2300's and the Z-5500's aren't exactly the greatest price, doesn't make them bad.

They're pretty decent speakers.

They're really not once you listen to speakers that aren't PC or multimedia speakers.
