Ok not get video card, sound instead.
« on: February 13, 2004, 11:40:57 PM »
I have decided to hold off on video card since may 4600 still going great.  Instead have decided to get Audigy 2 and speakers.  Does anyones here have the these speakers.

Logitech Z-5300 5.1 THX Certified Speaker System -RETAIL
Specifications:
Configuration: 5.1
Power Output: 280 Watts RMS(2 x 35.25W front, 2 x 35.25W rear, 39W center, 100W Subwoofer)

Will cost me $234 in all but I am getting good refund back and have little extra cash.

I actually have those speakers. . . (you trying to stalk/copy me?) along with an Audigy 2 ZS.  Very nice sound.  My only beef is that the remote is corded with a very thick stiff cord.  In fact they were part of a review I posted here.

Two thumbs up on the speakers for sure.

You are my god.   ;D

Anyways does the 5300 have treble and bass control on it?  I am really leaning towards that one but my have to hold off untill after I get refund and put in the bank.

Should have added how long are the speaker wires for the rear ones?

The back speakers are fed with a 15' cable with an "RCA" end.  They do have bass control, fader, and volume. . . I'll have to check for sure.  I'm sitting at my wife's laptop right now.  I'll go check later and post my findings.
