Well I kinda wanted to ask for opinions on what speakers you guys think are the best, and brag/complain about what you have. And maybe what you are listening to Sound is 60% of the experience when gaming or working on the computer!

I'll start.

[PSST, i also want to know what to do if my speakers break some day lol]

I have a good condition MM-1000 Speaker system - the two flatpanels and a subwoofer... (I know, you are thinking :confused: then :Puzzled: then :lulz: if you don't know about them lol)

They have the best sound i have EVER heard! Really, crystal clear sound seems only to be limited by the song i'm playing (or game, more commonly song.) and when the family starts yelling that it's too loud and/or when stuff starts vibrating.

(My water pitcher started vibrating strongly today at certain parts of Black Sabbath - Iron Man)

Some songs i can turn it high enough to where my ears ring a little bit afterwards, like Modern Design. (Yes, I listen to music i take out of games often, i like instrumental music lol)

Always perfect quality, PERFECT, even at high high volume! (Unless something on my desk starts vibrating, as i said)

Sorry, today I started listening to music (Black Sabbath - Iron Man, Modern Design, Some Collective Soul, Styx, And i think one Metalica song got in there.) now (Geeky, i know!) i'm just so hyped up about how awesome the sound quality is on my speakers is, i'm so happy to have them.

Your turn! :p

Edit: 1300th post btw.

I'm currently using the Logitech Z-2300. They're one of the best 2.1 computer speaker+subs you can get for under $100, in terms of both sound quality and sheer volume. These things will rip your eardrums to shreds at 2/3 volume, and won't distort.

Also, here's a photo of my own, just to show you how large the subwoofer is. My desktop case is not pictured, but the sub is about as tall as the case, over twice as wide, and just a bit less deep (around the same depth if you include the heatsink on the back)

Sweet zombie jesus that's one big sub you've got! I assume the Z-5500s use a similar size one.

I have the X-540s from Logitech, coupled with an X-Fi XtremeGamer sound card.

The X-540s are a budget 5.1 setup, but coming from 2.0, I think they're fantastic. I was seriously considering the Z-5500s for a while, but someone else owned the X-540s and I had a listen and figured they were ok. In retrospect, it's probably a good thing I didn't go for the Z speakers, as I'd have no freaking legroom with that sub.

The XtremeGamer is Creative, so naturally the Win7 support was AWFUL for a while, but eventually they got around to releasing ok drivers, and everything works as it should, if a little sluggishly.

I'm extremely happy with what I've got. Very crisp and clear. Perhaps a little bassy at times, and maybe not as loud as I'd like on rare occassions, but an excellent setup for the money.

@ Daed

Nice - how do you manage to get the speakers properly positioned? I have enough trouble with 2 flat panel speakers on my desk lol.

I used the rear speakers as my front speakers, and got 10' extension cable for the rear ones. =p They're all wall-mounted, except my centre channel, which is sitting on my monitor. Where my desk is in my room is pretty box-like.

They're extremely easy to mount, as they have a bit under the stand that you can just slide onto a screw. Hand drill, self-tapping plastic plasterboard screws, 3" screws, done.
