    Well, I don't know much about them, but would like to hear if anyone has 5.1 surround speakers that they love, for their computer setup. Or know of speakers that they hate. I am just testing to see what might be 'good' to invest in. I don't want to spend a ton, but also don't want some cheap ass walmart **** that will suck. In any case, can anyone recommend any good speaker systems? Brands? I've read a bit in the forums, but some of its dated, and I imagine the technology has moved on. I am naive, so bear with me.

    Any good rec's, or sites with speaker system reviews?

    I raved about these countless times, my logitech Z-5450s, comes with a hub, and wireless rear speakers. Every satellite has the ability to be wall mounted, and I go no interference from cell phones on them. I bought the airport express, and they are amazing.

    Here's a link to buy them, not a bad deal if you ask me.

    I have the Logitech X-540s and I'm quite happy with it. Though I am no audiophile, it sounds pretty good when I'm playing Crysis at office shaking (read: wife-annoying) levels.

    Thanks! I was reading reviews on Newegg's site and the Logitech's (all of them actually) got a really good reviews. I like the wireless rear speaker setup, as running wires out and back would be a pain in the ass (although doable, i guess).

    Can't complain about any of the Logitech.

    Alternatives would be the older Klipsch 5.1 (yes, they made two [or three] different 5.1's)

    Creative also makes quality for the money and their gigaworks series is comparable to the Z-5500s
