I'm currently looking for a decent 5.1 system that I can use for gaming and especially listening to music on my PC. My budget is €500, but I'd like to get a decent-ish soundcard as well, so it will be around €450 in reality. That's a maximum, if I can get something decent for less, it's even better.
- Clear, crisp sound
- No/very little creaking
- Not too massive
- Heavy thumping bass (a bit of oomph is nice, but I don't need a system that can double as an earthquake generator).
- Extremely high volume
Oh, and if someone has tips on a budget sound card, please give them as well. I'm currently looking at lower end Asus ones like the Xonar DX, but all suggestions are welcome.
yeah, me too! i'm also looking for a good 5.1 system, I'm thinking of the Logitech X-530 at the moment, but it looks a little cheap-mid range. so i'm looking for something better.
Are Altec Lansings good too? I want to stay about the $200 AUD range.
