So I had a Logitech X-230 2.1 setup, sold locally for $50. (yeah i sold it for a pretty good price on my end)
Best setup for $50? Considering 5.1 setup, but it's expensive. Maybe re-certified? Suggestions on best 2.1 or a good 5.1 setup?

These speakers have such defined and well tuned highs that I notice sounds I never heard before in so much of my music collection. The 5" woofer in this 2.1 kit provides ample thump/boom without compromising sound quality. If you want your room to shake every time a grenade goes off in a game then stick with unbalanced Logitech speakers.

If you want to enjoy music and other multimedia (as well as gaming) in high fidelity... look no further than the Swan m10! You can thank me later.

But I can't do that. I can do $60 max. So nothing better than X530 in that price range?

There's better, but nothing you'd be satisfied with as an upgrade.

My advice: go to a thrift store.. they occasionally have stuff worth buying.

Would the Z-2300's be worth the upgrade?

I do not want headphones. These are going to be for music and movies. I live in a dorm, and like to listen to loud music, but I don't want it distorted either :X

Can't get anything like that for $60.

Double your budget and then we'll talk.

Not sure what to tell you then. You're not going to find much of anything good for $60.

Yea if your budget is $60 you should have kept your x230. If you can up your budget to $150, get the M-Audio AV40 or Klipsch promedia (if you want a sub).

Then you shouldn't have sold the Logitech.
Granted it sounds abysmal in the treble and midrange department, but with a bit of EQing it sounds bearable at least.

Right now it's a bit hard to find something that will fit the budget because firstly, it's really too low to recommend any brand new serious gear.

Then when you look used, you can't really find anything spectacular for this price range either.

I just went ahead and ordered the X530 by Logitech for $50 free shipping. Figured that wasn't bad, considering I know I at least liked the X230's a lot. Surround sound can only be better seeing as how there based on the same speakers.
