Logitech Z5500D Replacement

Hi Guys


My long serving Logitech Z5500D's has sadly died.


I am looking for a replacement that would hopefully be able to give me the same kind of quality.


I am unsure if I want to stick with 5.1 or just go for 2.1 as they are only used on my computer for watching movies and listening to music.


Can anyone give me some ideas of what new system I would go for.

we can recommend a setup that costs more than a house and it'd surely be better than your Logitech setup.

budget?

Intel i9 9900K Coffee Lake @ X8 5309mhz (+47.5%)
AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)
Intel i5 4690K Haswell @ X4 5013mhz (+43.2%)
AMD X4 960T Zosma @ X6 4870mhz (+62.3%)
Intel i7 6700 Skylake @ X4 4709mhz (+38.5%)

I got these to replace my last set of Logitech speakers.

Budget would be under $300 AUD i would imagine. I am leaning towards 2.1 as it was pointed out to me that if I dont have my 5.1 set up properly...that you might as well go with 2.1

You can get by with a cheap Class D amplifier without sub-out and still run a sub so long as the subwoofer has high level input/outputs. I ran both a Lepai LP-2020A+ and a SMSL SA50 (both 2 channel amplifiers) and a powered subwoofer for a while.



with your budget look at a SMSL SA36/SA50/AD18, a pair of Micca MB42 speakers, and a Polk Audio PSW10 or Acoustic Audio PSW-8 sub. It should be obtainable for that budget if you just convert AUD to USD, no idea on how things are really priced on your side of the pond.

smarter route (but over budget) to go would be to go for the AD18 or a Klipsch PowerGate/full size receiver along with a pair of Micca RB42 and hold off on the sub. Save up a bit more money and add in a subwoofer later.

RB42 are less efficient than the MB42 and need more power but they have significantly more low end than the MB42. I wouldn't pair the RB42 with anything lesser than the SMSL SA50 and even that wasn't enough for me, I made the move to a PowerGate.
