Corsair SP2200 vs SP2500 - Page 2

post #11 of 26
got to say, I think you are really exaggerating.......

Or in fairness, post some $29.00 systems that are better. What did you not like about the system? Was it built poorly? Did you spend a long amount of time (more than a day) with it?

I was taking a look at these for someone (not a gamer) in the family.

thats how I know,I do not think I have been more disappointed
from a single computer product in years - I have wrote corsair as well,
I think they have allot of nerve ,its a 20 dollar system at best
Which $29.99 system outperformed the 2200s?

He said he thought that their sound wasn't any better than some $29.99 systems he's heard.

Well, i'm certainly not an audiophile and when it comes to sound, i'm really not picky. I had a 9yo 5.1 set from Creative and I bought the SP2200 last week since in the room my PC is I can't set the 5.1 to properly use the surround. So I decided to go 2.1, I bought them on sale for 80CAD.

I'm really pleased with them. The sound quality compared to my old 5.1 is night and day. They sound good enough for my in music, movies and game to consider them an upgrade.

sure if you're looking for the best 2.1 set out there the SPs are probably not what you should get but if you're not that picky (what I mean by that is if you're not an audiophile looking for the best thing out there but you enjoy good sound) then the SP2200 are well worth the price.

That was my opinion.

Well, yes it is the point because you're making a direct comparison (or perhaps multiple comparisons). So it's very important to know what the comparison is, or what the comparisons are.

So, which model of Creative speakers? Were there other speakers you can compare the 2200s to? Of course, I am indeed talking about real-world experience.

Yes I'm for real because it would be nice if your comparison could benefit others. After all, you are obviously able to make a direct comparison to another model, so if you don't state which model it is, then all you're doing is blowing smoke (wasting everyone's time).

You deem them as garbage.

You are comparing them to other "$29.99" speakers.

So, what model of speakers are you comparing the 2200s to?

If you can't do this simple thing, then you're not contributing anything useful at all.

No. I am simply interested in making sure that your comparison can be useful to others; I already have speakers that I love and so I have no desire to replace them.

Then you either had the Creative I-Trigue 3300s, or the I-Trigue 3350s.

So it sounds like we can probably say that either the I-Trigue 3300s or perhaps the 3350s are better than Corsair's SP2200s.

YES...Fking Sherlock Holmes here .......3300s is what I had
Reviews dont lie either,they exceeded expectations,unlike the Corsairs which brought a tear to my eye LOL.............I saved the 3300 speakers,if I could find the amp im be thrilled - but comparably
they both share similar specs on paper but the 2200s just plain choke

My Logitek Z2300s arrive today from Amazon.......Looking fwd to it too
