I used to have a small 50 watt 2.1 system from years ago. Then I upgraded to the Logitech 2.1 Z623 loved em! shook my house great for movies, games, music was so so. Then I guess the amp burned out, causing the sub to fail, replacements would've taken 9 weeks. So I got a refund and purchases the Corsair SP-2500s which I am using now. I am hesitant of getting another set I've read numerous articles of the under powered amp burning out.
They are pretty good sound great but I have to crank the volume on them 95% power and it just seems like the 8" sub is working waaaaaaaaaay to hard during music. Now I've been told if I get and amplified sound card such as the Xonar DX or D1 that will greatly increase the quality of the SP-2500s output and won't have to have the volume cranked and help the sub performance. Can anyone here verify this? These were supposed to be superior to the Z623 in everyway...
I'd like to get a system with a 10" sub and looked at the Logitech Z906 now the old Logitech Z-5500 are back on their website? Which I've always read are superior to the Z906 in everyway. Or would I have better luck just assembling a system myself? with a receiver a powered sub and 2 speakers?
Really hope I can figure this out soon. I just want great 2.1 sound (room is to small for 5.1) I'd like separate inputs to the sub and the speakers so I can fiddle each of them. I'm guessing I'll need a new soundcard rather then just my 5.1 onboard. I don't wanna have to worry about my system burning itself out from working to hard.
