Got this in the amazon lightning deals for £39 amazing sound for the price, Still good value at £49.

I've still got the Logitech zz5500 5.1 set I bought years ago. The sub is big enough to use as a dining table.The sound is quality still. The whole thing is still going strong. If this is anything like that, well worth the money. I just wish I could live somewhere remote and have no guilt about turning the volume up

You and me both, got a horrible neighbour that bangs on my wall at 4 in the afternoon on half volume!

Temping, but for a little more money a soundbar can be had. Did any of you try a soundbar for PC speakers? Any opinions? I'm not sure whether to buy this or a soundbar.

The thing I dislike with these sets is the wires. Jesus Christ, the wires. So with that in mind, I have thought about a soundbar before but always wondered about the quality of sound from those...

I know how you feel mate. Bought this when I was living in a student hall. Not sure if I had ever turned the volume up more than a few bars! Shame, really. X)

Note these are designed for a pc so require three 3.5mm jacks. Your standard tv or laptop will not have these and would only work in stereo, not surround.

If you just connect up the main stereo inputs then you get "virtual surround" from a TV. Have mine hooked up to a bedroom telly and it is more than decent. If you actually want plain stereo (plus sub) you can get a three-way 3.5mm splitter cable and feed the same source to the centre, front and rear inputs. Might male sense if you are mainly interested in music, but my telly has the headphone socket going to the main stereo input and I get decent virtual surround sound. Don't know how it works but it works well. These are very decent speakers - shame no optical input but still a bargain.

IMO only, a soundbar's not particularly well suited for a PC. they're mostly designed to project the sound around a listener a distance away from a TV, not sat 2-3ft away. They'll work, but not that well.
Either these will do, or I would recommend what I use, Logitech z5400 or whatever the latest version is - maybe's "Yazri's" xx5500. There's a set on ebay atm (r.ebay.com/velVzX if the link is allowed?) that would be interesting to see what they go for.

What do you mean by virtual surround? Does the Logitech makes the calculation itself for the virtual effect?

Maybe he just doesn't want to listen to your s**t in his own home!

I bought this a few years ago when I was on offer at Currys for £79 including a Logitech Bluetooth adapter.
Was a really good purchase. I use it to stream music wirelessly and it is hidden on a shelf behind my bed so I don't have to see it.
So many wires! But once it's set up and in place you can tidy then up or hide them or whatever.
It doesn't go quite as loud as I want sometimes but it's meant for PCs so I can't complain too much. Also, I might just be going deaf!

I know it won't happen but put it through Flubit to knock a bit off

Will this be any good connected to a tv?

If you want true 5.1 from your TV then you need an additional device like "eSynic® Digital Audio Decoder to Analog 5.1 Converter - Support Digital Optical Coaxial DTS AC3 Dolby Signal and Stereo(R/L) Audio Signal into 5.1 / 2"

No but I've had bad experiences with people of the same mindset as him in the past.
