Looking for a new sound setup

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I currently have Logitec X 540's, and I love them, however, I want better sound (don't we all?).

So what I'm looking for, is a setup I can add on to. But I don't want to spend a huge amount...

Suggestions?

Define "huge amount"

To some people over $100 is huge, others wouldn't spend less than $1000 on audio stuff..

If you're looking for a setup that you can expand (I'm assuming you mean surround) then it would be a good idea to buy a pair of standmount speakers and an AV Receiver, you can then add more speakers and a sub as money permits - it all depends on your initial budget though.

For starters I would recommend you get away from 'computer' speakers and get a small pair of bookshelves and an amp or some powered monitors. There is a sticky you can look at for some suggestions. For anything more you'll need to post a budget if you want people to be able to give you specific options.

Well, the budget is about $100. I have a set of Pioneer surrounds (L/R/Center RL/RR) but they are old, they were part of a setup I bought a while back from a pawn shop. I also have a HUGE pair of Pioneer speakers, with a 12" woofer, mid and tweet. But they are also old, and cheap. And I really don't have room for them (Hence them being in storage).

The problem I have with getting away from computer speakers is I don't have room for a receiver.
