£190 for PC speakers...lol?

Dont get me wrong, I am a PC enthuast with a £200 graphics card, £100 power supply, £60 sound card...but even I think £190 is alot for PC speakers..

Not just for PC's will also add 5.1 to PS3/Xbox etc.. via Optical in.

Personally I'd stretch the budget and look at the Onkyo HTS3305 instead.....

mate this is a great budget setup and your getting alot for your money. Its an amp, 5.1 decoder and 5.1 speakers in a stylish package. Its been out for 5 years plus and still nothing comes close.

I will say this setup is best for movies and games - it doesn't really have the finesse for music.
#5
I bought one of these a few years ago, for £250 + and use it for xbox360, ps3, sky and dj decks and to be honest its suits all formats. Spent many an hour spinning round in circles listening to the sound go round the room in a number of games!!

Would definatly recommend this THX certified kit for anyone wanting good quality sound at a budget price!

I had the Z5500 really good sound on both ps3 and xbox but upgraded to the HT3305 and the difference is remarkable. If budget allows definately go for these

These are beasts. Couldn't turn up over 10% they're that powerful!
#8
That is hot!!!! Unbelievably loud. Be warned, ear drums maybe burst!
#9
These are absolutely stunning speakers - I was looking at buying them a couple of years back and I think they were about £80 more. Heat added.
#10
These are well worth the money had a set about 3 years ago

A lot for a decoder, set of speakers and THX certification? Shurrup love.

Personally I listen to a lot of music on my main rig, and gaming is noticeably more immersive with a good set of speakers. But then I'm a PC enthusiast with a £500 graphic card, £200 PSU and £140 sound card :P

Well my graphics card was £1 million and has its own Nuclear power plant and is plugged directly into the PA system of Wembly. Time to upgrade soon - Crysis 2 is almost out.

£199 for these speakers and decoder which I always lusted after 5, 6 or more years ago is a bargain if you have the sort of setup that allows them, failing that they work well with PS3s etc and could be ideal for the kiddies room.

As for being expensive, has the poster looked at purchasing a DECENT amp and speakers lately. What hifis recommended budget amp is £300 ish and speakers are £500, and the speakers are ugly as.... but sound alright.

Amazing speakers - and really good price. Buy them you won't regret - apart from finding somewhere to put the sub - its huge!! Audiophiles won't like them but I can't tell the different between mine and a friend's £7k system! They're just as loud as well. They've got all the same inputs as top amps - like optical digital... except the HDMI passthrough...but this isn't an issue with PC ... or a TV with 3+ HDMI inputs and optical out. Amazing in films, and gaming - I love them and could never justify any more money on decent audio system after getting and hearing these.

To the poster saying these are expensive PC speakers... These aren't just PC speakers, they work in living room too - my mum wanted them for her home theatre in her house, she loves them cos sound is great and she doesn't have to have huge speaker everywhere - she hides them behind ornaments and decorated the sub! The only downside is that volume on TV is separate controller.
I went for Samsung home theatre setup for £500 for my living room, purely as they looked slightly nicer for living room, but wish I'd just gone for another set of these... £190 is a steal for these.
#20
I bought mine acouple of years ago when these were 170 quid everywhere, then all of a sudden they jumped up to 250 and have only recently started coming down in price. Money well spent but be warned, they are seriously loud, I can't turn them up miore than about 50% because the double glazing starts shaking far too much

Have had these for 2 years now, use them for Media Streamer, iPod, PS3 and xbox 360. They really do sound stunning. Very loud too, if you need to.
#23
Great item... bought 4 years ago from Amazon for £189.99.... and from the price not being changed since then, shows how much this has stood the test of time.
#24
Even at £199 these are a good buy. I got mine for about £176 from Amazon 2/3 years ago.

I think they're selling themselves short describing them as PC Multimedia speakers as they're equally at home connected to your Bluray player / PS3
The sub is a bit on the large size taking up a lot of room, but then it does kick out some hefty sound.

Well worth it, bought a set for £199 at the weekend, they were delivered and set-up yesterday.

"Beasts" are the best term for them.
#29
I have the set before this, the Logitech z680 set and have had it for about 5 or 6 years and they are amazing. Playing Modern Warfare 2 is like being in the warzone. People always get the big screen and skimp out on the sound, when really for movies, games etc the sound is the key. Get these and you won't be disappointed!

I got my z680 set for £130 from Amazon about 5 or 6 years ago.

Any chance of extending the warranty? otherwise it's a steal Pay day today

I got my X-540's brand new for £40 for the PC. They don't have optical out but do 5.1 with the PC via the soundcard.

They are seriously powerful and seriously cheap (when on offer)!

Why a £200 graphics card.... just a picture on a screen isnt it?
Why a £100 power supply..... you just want some electricity right?
Why £60 on a soundcard..... you just wanna hear some beeps and bops right?

You... (as a pc enthusiast) should know all too well that sometimes, you gotta pay a little more premium for the very best.

If you go on google and research the reviews on this product you'll agree it gets virtually 5/5 every time. I have the 2.1 version, comes with 2 speakers and the mighty subwoofer and its mind blowingly good.

I went for the 2.1 simply because I don't have anywhere else to put the other speakers that come with the 5.1 package, plus I didn't need 5.1.

As other posters have said, you can connect your 360/PS3/iPOD to these as well, they are very versatile and have amazing clarity and definition.... calling them "pc speakers" is actually an insult, compared to the rest of the crap in that market.

The sub is large so that you can enjoy 'decent' bass, rather than 'thud/thump' from cheaper systems, instead you'll enjoy deeper levels of smooth bass.

A cracking system, but if you are on a budget, check out the 2.1 version, Z2500 for half the price.
