    I just bought a set of Logitech Z623s for myself (and my flat) for xmas. I plan to use them for parties and listening to music in my room. Obviously I'm no audiophile but from what I've read they're just what I'm after. Can't wait to try them out.

    But enough about my stuff, what do you guys have? What do you use them for? Are they any good? What would you replace them with?

    Silly ones.

    One pair of Celestion Ditton 662 and one pair of Acoustic Research AR3a.

    I've always much prefered quality full range stereo to n.1 type solutions

    VAF Octavio iPod speaker.

    They stopped making them, but they're the best iPod speakers around. Heck, I chose these over a decent pair of Fostex and a separate iPod dock accessory. VAF normally sell $5000 - 10000 speakers, and I got the Octavio for like $350!!! They sound better than the Zeppelin and were much cheaper. ;-)

    iMac has Logitech Z4 2.1 system

    PC has a pair of Monitor Audio 700 MK2 Gold loudspeakers with a separate 45 watt per channel Parasound Z-Amp power amp, and a Velodyne SPL 800 Subwoofer (800 watts rms)

    Forgot to mention my Mini (bedroom system) is connected to my 5.1 surround system which includes a Cambridge Audio Azur 540R surround receiver, Definitive Technology Pro Cinema 100's and a Super Cube II Subwoofer

    For my mac mini in bedroom I use Logitech Squeezebox BOOM and some old Creative subwoofer connected to it. It is very nice sounding setup, except subwoofer which I plan to change to something better.

    A pair of these. They are about 45 this year. Don't sound a day over 16. ;)

    Electrovoice Marquis bass-reflex, with 12's and horns.

    A pair of Roland MA-8 monitors. Cheap, but they do the trick for now. I've thought about upgrading them time and again, but every time I get enough money to do so, something more important comes along.

    I tend to use headphones most of the time though, so this hasn't bothered me too badly.

    I wish I could remember the model name of the set I have on my Mini. They are JBLs, but not the Creatures. The speakers look like small flowers and the sub looks like a UFO or something. :)

    Anyway, they are really good and have great sound from such tiny speakers. I got them about half price a couple of years ago on Black Friday.

    Edit: Found 'em. It's the JBL Spyro. They sound great, but the speakers are a bit fragile. One of the supports got bent when I moved recently, but everything still works.

    In my living room: Atlantic Technology 350THX system. Love em! Have had them for almost 10 years now and they are showing no signs of fatigue!! When I do get around to replacing them I will be getting some Definitive Technology speakers. Love em!!

    Where are people putting their subs? I've heard that in the corner of a room on the floor is the ideal spot? Is this true? I have an L shaped desk so I plan on putting them under there.

    Right next to the computer (directly under the desk). I'm not sure if that is what's best, but it works.

    Logitech Z313's. Got them on Black Friday. They sound pretty good to me, but I'm nowhere near an audiophile. They serve their purpose for me.

    I have some Logitech X-240 speakers. They sound good now, but I had to set them up the following way to suit my equalization preferences: high sub level, iTunes EQ at treble amplification. This way I got rid of the insane amount of mids it had. Otherwise I'm very satisfied.

    Yes, subs are non-directional, and the two walls and floor help enhance the sound.

    Kitty-corner, facing out, is preferred.

    A pair of Genelec 8020s, driven by a MOTU Ultralite interface.

    They're made out of solid aluminium - very solid. Sounds awesome.

    Logitch Z2300 - actually the predecessor to your Z623s. They sound fantastic, but at the cost of a sub roughly the size of a small state.

    Okay, it's not that big, but it is compared to the speakers they replaced.

    Yeah, I have an L-shaped desk and keep my sub under it. My current one isn't too bad, but I used to have a giant Harmon-Kardon sub that took up a bunch of space under the desk. I was always banging into it. Make sure your sub isn't too big.
