I got these on ebay for $35 + S&H BRAND NEW a few months back. Very good sounding speakers. Music sounds AWESOME on them. I play a lot of FPS, so the surround is NICE! Speakers

cant decide !!

sad none of them have dolby or thx certification :frowning:

ps : i am avoid buying the 5100enhanced 5.1 speaker due to lack of desktop space plus too many wires for 6 speakers will mess things up 2 much


btw, how do i choose ???

a 5.1 is available at almost same price of 2.1

Personally, I like the surround so my vote would lean towards the last one. But unfortumately they are the most expensive of the three. The first ones are not out yet…any idea when they will be available?? The second ones are a little too bulky for me. Of course, these are only my opinions. :slight_smile:

p.s. - what do you do primarily with your system (i.e. gaming, music, vidoes??)

i also loved the last one, it will a little diffcult to arrange 6 speakers + wires on a small desk…my room is also not that big to setup a proper surround system…

i will end up keeping 2 speakers in one place (one above other) which pretty kill the reason of buying a 5.1

The first ones are not out yet…any idea when they will be available??

should be out within 15 days (i hope)

p.s. - what do you do primarily with your system (i.e. gaming, music, vidoes??)

primarily games, then movies & mp3
