Topcashback is giving 3% atm so about £1 extra off if it tracks at the discounted price or £2 if it tracks at the full price.
It only supports True 5.1 on PC soundcards as it uses analog connections, the 360 and PS3 need digital optical for true 5.1 otherwise it uses the 'Matrix' mode to turn 2.1 into virtual 5.1 instead which isn't quite as good but is decent enough.

Hot.

I've had a set of these since Dec 2008, bought for .....£48.99 from Amazon!
It appears they've held their value well.
#11
Do these have any kind of sound processor in i.e AC3/DTS etc.? I can't see anything...

Already got a set of Creative 5.1 T1600 speakers, anyone think its worth upgrading to these?

These are just speakers. Nothing more. It doesn't accept optical.

I use them with my iMac on the Windows 7 partition with a Creative X-Fi USB Sound Blaster. They're brilliant. I don't think I paid much more than this but they come recommended.

I might add that the cable lengths are shockingly short. I am in a 6ft x 7ft room and they're too small! Single RCA/Phono extension cables will be a must in larger rooms.

No, it's an analogue set of speakers.

Base unit contains the sub-woofer, and takes all the input connections from the PC. (via 3 1/8" stereo audio jacks)
It then has outputs to the 5 satellite speakers via RCA cables.

Agreed, I too had to use extensions for the rear left & rear right speakers.

I only have three back-panel connectors for line-in, line-out, microphone-in, two front-panel connectors for headphone-output and microphone-in.i also have a s/pdif digital out

can i use this to get true 5.1 sound? should i buy it or not bother?

any help would be appreciated

how you connect them to your ps3, they are analogue not digital so you cant connect via an optical.

Each 3.5mm input\output acts carries 2 channels (you know like headphones carry 2 channels). So it sends a 5.1 signal using those 3 that you have.

For a computer, this "true" 5.1 is a bit silly, what people are on about is that these speakers don't have their own decoder, you will need software on your computer to decode the 5.1 signal, be it Dolby Digital\DTS\Dolby TrueHD\DTS Master Audio...etc.

There are free decoders available for all of them, except to my knowledge "DTS Master Audio", it doesn't really matter, it's just software and if you really want to get it working it won't be an issue if you ask on a forum or two if you get stuck.

Ordered anyways lets see how they compare to the creatives
#24
Just orderd one, normally i dont like 5.1 as the mess, thought i'd give these a go as they can be wall mounted, i might use 3.1 and leave the back 2 disconnected.
#25
Excellent speakers. Only issue might be cable length if you're serious about mounting them, even in a smallish room.
#26
hi
Will these work with a Acer Revo?

If they do how will I extend the cable to locate the speakers around the room and what cable do I buy?

Can these also be connected to a amplifier?

Thanks

Wow, this is hot. Amazing system for the price, sooo close to buying it, but I don't need one! I should be banned from HUKD...oO

I've stuck with Logitech products for sometime now. Their speakers are,in my opinion, better than Creatives, which I've owned. For £44.50 for a much rated 5.1 system, it's a bargain! HOT!!!

hi

Not really, the Acer Revo doesn't have 5.1 Analogue output.
You could plug the Left/Right channels into the headphone socket, and use the matrix mode to create the other 3.1 channels.... but I wouldn't bother, it won't be taking full advantage of what the Revo can output. (5.1 via HDMI or optical)

If they do how will I extend the cable to locate the speakers around the room and what cable do I buy?


Just google "rca extension cable".
It shouldn't cost you more than a few quid to get a few metres.
I wouldn't buy them until you've got the speakers though, as you you may not need extensions at all - and even then you probably won't need extensions for all 5 satellite speakers.

Can these also be connected to a amplifier?

Thanks


Depends very much upon the amp.

It sounds like you want to use these for a home cinema type setup; that's not what they're intended for - they're just good surround sound PC speakers.

If your sound card (either dedicated, or integrated on the motherboard) doesn't support 5.1 surround sound then I wouldn't recommend getting 5.1 speakers, it's a waste.

Most modern non-budget motherboards have atleast 5.1 sound (usually 7.1), you'll be able to tell from the connector backplate. It should look something like this:

Alternatively.... read your motherboard manual!

To be quite honest I've had a range of branded speakers Labtec, Logitech, Altec Lansing, Cambridge Soundworks and Creative Labs.

Some of the Logitech speakers were just rebranded Labtecs but very good quality and Cambrige Soundworks were taken over by Creative I think?

I've been down the route of 5.1 and 2.1 and to be very honest I really feel that (for me) a good quality set of 2.1 speakers is about the best practical solution overall.

I've had to (temporarily) retire my Creative Labs DeskTop Theatre 5.1 DTT2200 as my current laptop uses an express card slot and I can't use my Creative PCMCIA Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS soundcard..bummer, so I'm just using the Altec Lansing 2.1's but the sound quality is still there :)

I tend to travel/move frequently, so the hassle of the extra wiring becomes a pain but if you live in the same house for years on end I suppose it's not so bad :)

Looks like a good price for quality speakers! :{

I am looking for decent 2.0 (or 2.1) PC speakers ... I don't really want a subwoofer if I can avoid it. I would prefer to spend £30 or less, but have up to £50 to spend if need be. The one thing I can't stand is hum (e.g. from the transformer). Can anyone recomnmend anything better, or should this set be on the shortlist (but I will not use 3 of the speakers).

Thanks
#39
Do these have decent shielding from interference?
I have a set of old Cambridge 5.1s which are fine but they pick up all sorts of crap from stuff like mobile phones, hoovers etc...
