Z5500 should i buy them in my case?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
well, after a nice drop in their price in israel from 1800nis (~470$) to 1300nis (~340$)
i'm now considering on buying them.

i know its a great set for a pc but...

right now i have a small room 3*3.5 meters, and don't really have a good place to put a surround system.

i thought of some how using the Z5500 as a 3.1 for the PC and use the other two speakers with the LCD i have on the wall.

right now i'm using a very very old speakers... Cambridge Soundworks DTT2500
the problem is that they are half dead, only 3 speakers working and some other stuff....

what do you think i should do? the price went down, but it's still not cheap for a college student but i do like to buy good things even if i have to find some extra cash for them, i do belive the Z5500 will serve me for few years (i hope)

For that price you can get some decente bookshelf speakers and a amp.
If you don't have space to have a 5.1 system then why get one?

No you shouldn't they are lousy.All you need is a good stereo bookshelf speaker system like polk audio,and maybe add a sub.

I never understand why people spend that kind of money on what are really substandard speakers. Its a good set for PC speakers, but when compared to real speakers they are cheap and crappy.

Buy an amp and a stereo pair of decent speakers. You can then add surrounds and a center later.

Otherwise you can look at the BX5a.
