creative gigaworks g500 5.1 speaker? logitech z-5500 5.1 speaker? Myself i'm selling them. To be honest, i think the creative speakers are with better sound quality. Although the logitech has a 10" sub, but trust me, useless, the sound of speaker.... blak, subwoofer, hello u wake up?? lol. But on the other than, the logitech has all the build in decoder and the design is better than the logitech speaker.

About the price, i found the creative the cheapest at, around 149 pound? And the logitech speaker around 170 pound? not sure

i've got the creative g500 in stock with me new, brand new. Make me an offer but only cash on collection. Based in swansea.

I'm looking for some with a sub, at least 5.1 (maybe 7.1), pref silver, with some decent sound. Speaker stands wouls be beneficial, but not essential.

I would also need aprice inc delivery sorry Jacky !!

hi chris, i've check the price and found the the creative g500 5.1 speaker is 149 in and the logitech z-5500 5.1 speaker is 196 in They are the cheapest i found on the web. So what i could do for u is 139 for the G500 DELIVERYED and 185 for the z-5500 DELIVERED. PM me if you are interested. thx.

Are these surround sound systems mainly for PC's.... Sorry to hijack the thread Chris but I'm looking for a decent surround sound system for my:

Xbox 360, PS2 & SKY+ box. My HDTV unfortunatley does not have surround sound built in. Question is how do i achieve 5.1 surround sound for these - im clueless when it comes to audio (give me a pc anyday and ill answer that nps).


i'm not 100% sure about this, but if you are looking for a surround sound for your xbox, i think u will need the logitech z-5500 as it has a build in decorder which supports analogue inputs and also has an optical and a digital coaxial input. check it here at,…486

It shows that it supports the source input with Digital optical for DVD or CD players, PlayStation®2, Xbox®** {**Requires Xbox® Advanced AV Pack or Xbox® High Definition AV Pack, sold separately, or PC sound cards (requires optical cable, sold separately)}.

Hence i think there's a no problem for your XBOX and PS2. Sky box, should be working too as it has a digital inputs

iv got the z5500's coming tomorrow from ebuyer, heard there amazing from the 34 reviews on ebuyer, will let you all know!!
