Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

I have tried a lot of speaker setups but nothing beats the immersion of a good set of headphones.

I only have headphones plugged into my rig, so that's what I went with. I used them the majority of the time when I had speakers hooked up too. Better immersion, like others said.

We need a side question to this one, Do you live alone, with friends/family, married? This is important information when considering the base question. I would bet MOST people the prefer speakers are not married  :rolleyes:

I used only headphones in my "early days" (ages 12-14) but they were always uncomfortable and hot, but since then I invested in some nice speakers and amp and glad I went to speakers.
