ok well i just bought a Logitech Z506 5.1 from the Walmart online,...my fear is that it won't last as long as the old ones but it will be set up in surround sound configuration so we'll see...

Seem to be a lot of options but I wish I could find a replacement for my Klipsh 5.1 setup.  I think I will just pick up a powered sub and connect the speakers to my old 7.1 surround sound amp  that  lost the capability to be remotely controlled.

Logitech is one of the main brands I hear about for PC speakers, so I guess you are good. Kind of makes me want to setup my old Logitech 5.1 speakers, but i'll need to reinstall my Sound Blaster Z, hehe. Been using a Razer Headset for a year now, so. Anyhow good luck with your new toy and let us know how it sounds.

yes and yes, seems like getting the sound right is very subjective ...individual preferences matter and money,...i looked hard at the clear klipish setup and the bose companion, but the dollars,...trust though, if these don't sound right they will be going to the wifes office !

Honey these dont sound right to me. You need new speakers so I can get something that sounds right to me!  Sadly I have used that tactic before. 

 

SO how do they sound?

Something you might think about is a set of quality headphones like the Klipsch Reference.

That is, if you do not mind wearing headphones. Plus keeps the games noise from

other family members. Cost is $200.

if your computer has bluetooth get these, make sure it comes with the remote if you buy a used one

it also has a subwoofer output so you can find a cheap polk subwoofer this black friday if you want to get even more advanced

and since it is bluetooth, you can play music directly from your phone or PS VITA, etc. as well.
