Hey boys... long time!
Anyways... My good ol' Gigaworks G500's finally gave up the ghost. Been looking into THX Certified speakers... they seem to have the ability to bring you to orgasm by sound alone. There's very few on the market today, one being the Z-5500, which I'm well aware are an astonishingly powerful set of speakers. However, I need an alternative that won't lead to corporal punishment when the bill arrives.
Let me know what you've got.
Thanks

Not the Z5500. No.
It does not deserve that THX rating.
And THX is overrated anyway.
Speakers without THX Certification sound better than the Logi's.

You'd be better off finding a Creative S750.
That's EOL, but it's miles better than the Z5500.
I'm sure lots of other people can tell you why.

Thank you for the input... +rep Any other opinions?

Edit: I can't seem to find ANYWHERE that even sells these any more. Nothing even on eBay. Gonna need some help if I'm gonna try to buy a set of these.

This. For a small room, quality 2.0 / 2.1 is far better than crap 5.1

Sorry for the late response gentlemen. My budget is fairly flexible...not over $300 if I can help it. It's less for music than it is for my father... He LOVES playing flight simulators and really enjoys having 5.1 surround sound. If I were to get a 2.1 for him I'd prob get the Z-2300... I've owned a set of them for about 4 or 5 years and love them to death. Ideally I'd get him a kick-ass 5.1, as close as possible to the G500's that crapped out. I can't seem to find any good 5.1 systems though.
