Z-2300.

Hands down. You want something to rattle your teeth? THOSE are just it. The sub has amazing power, that will shake rooms and knock pictures off walls, while the satellites will be able to pump out some impressive power too.

Not sure about in Canada, but in the US, they're also pretty cheap. Also, I think Zammame has them, so talk to him. :)

Neither. Get a set of Klipsch Promedia 2.1s. They will blast any non-audiophile set into the stone age.

If you want a good system go with the Logitech Z-5500s. I have two of them on a Creative Xi-Fi sound card. Treble & mid is great, and the bass hits fucking hard as hell. I keep the volume on both at about 60% unless I'm home alone, then it's 100%. Bass boost on the Creative software at 80% (higher and audio becomes distorted...have to compenstate with audio program, i.e. WMP or Napster, volume settings), I use the circle wheel center wheel on my Logitech G15 keyboard for system volume and I rarely take it more than 3-4 "clicks" up which is 12% or so. Again, if I'm alone, I'll crank everything up and have my windows shaking back and forth with the system volume at like 20%.

The Z-5500s are sweet. An EPIC step up from my shitty X-230 I used to have.

If you're looking for stereo and not surround sound, then get the Z-2300's, they are fantastic. And they will rattle the shit out of your teeth. The Z-5500 that GateCrusher pointed out is basically a 5.1 surround version of that.

I've had my Z-2300's for nearly a year now, and looking back, I would not get anything else.

Although if you get them, buy from Amazon instead; I got mine for $90 plus shipping, where it would have been $140 plus shipping direct from Logitech, or even more from Best Buy.

Here's a shot I took a while ago, of my Z-2300 sub and right satellite; the left one is out of the picture.

The Z-5500 is not a "pair", it's a surround sound 5.1 set. Just keep that in mind. =p

Expensive, but worth the price if you love music. Get two of them and they'll agravate anyone who doesn't want to hear your music, including your neighbors. But, still doesn't beat 16k watts of Rockford Fosgate power going to 4 Fi Audio BTL 15's. Oh yeah. When I'm bored and/or not driving around, I'll just chill in it blasting everything that I have access to. Old people, beware.

^ That.

The ProMedia's are about the best set of PC speakers you can buy. They have by far the best sound quality unless your comparing them to studio monitors and the like. You can get the 2.1 set for around $100 i believe. The 2.1 set is also said to not have the overheating amp problem of the 5.1 set. So, unless you really need or want surround sound, the ProMedia is your best bet. It will send those Logitechs packing as far as sound quality goes. The ProMedia 2.1 set actually sounds a lot better than most 5.1 sets that i've heard.

What sound card are you using? To get the most out of any of these high end systems your going to need a good source.

Creative's Xi-Fi is by far the best one that I've used so far, and that's what I use on my home computer to power my Z-5500s.
