Hey guys, my Z-5500 kicked the bucket they lasted like 13 years so money well spent, anyone have any opinions or suggestions on a new speaker set, budget $400 or less, uses gaming/netflix "everything" I don't use headphones don't like em, thx!
no it doesn't need to be 5.1, just solid stereo, I didnt have my 5.1 setup properly either, just used a simple desktop setup all speakers infront of me, but ya I was debating on a 2.0/2.1 setup or even one of those sound bars? they any good?
With how you had your speakers I think your best bang for buck is currently these as a 2.1 setup (currently $280):
While I would go with the above, if you can live without the punch of a subwoofer, then these are a great price and would require quite a but more $ to find better (currently $150):
Looking for subwoofer supported bookshelf speakers? The R1850DB from Edifier does just that. Simply plug in your subwoofer and play. Connect to other sources for sound such as computers, laptops, TVs, and others. No amplifer or receiver needed.www.edifier.com
Check reviews and look at other options, but I don’t believe there is much else at those sale price points.
As mentioned above, there isn’t a 5.1 computer speaker option really available now. And I do not recommend going to a sound bar for a computer (they have their place, but this is not it).
For the sale price for the R1850DB it seems hard to beat imo.
