Get the Klipsch speakers. They kick major ass. They are more than capable of putting out great sound quality and shaking your entire house. They are fantastic. You don't want any other weakling brand of speakers, you want Klipsch.

The Altec Lansing PowerCube 48 is very nice too. I love 'em!

It sounds like you would like a setup with 4 speakers and if that is the case then I would also suggest the Klipsch. If 2 is good enough, I have the Boston Acoustics BA-635. 1 subwoofer and 2 satelites-very awesome!! Shakes the house with Quake 3!

but what do u guys think about all the new 5.1 solutions? with the digital processing and stuff?
thats waht the midilan s4-8200 is....

for the best sound, just buy a y cable and hook your stereo up to your comp...if u have a good dydtem then it real easily beat any comp speakers

a low end sony receiver and yamaha speakers

I'm going to have to go with the midiland ones. Those have been getting good reviews. Plus....with 200W o' power, you can't really go wrong. :)

Don't forget about the 30 dollar coupon you can put with that.

At a cost of $250, with 400W, you can't go wrong with the Klipsch's.
Newbiee: I had a set of some $300 Bose speakers (I know, Bose is terrible), and the Klipsch's beat my home system any day, except for the Dolby ProLogic. :)

If you're a serious gamer, I'd suggest the Monsoon MM-1000. They're pretty nice for one person. If you're out of their effective "sweet spot", they don't sound great, but when you're sitting in front of them, wow, they're great, really sweet. Plus, they look dope, and they're significatly cheaper than what you're looking at. Like I said, if you're planning to replace your home stereo (which, by your account, sux) then forget them. If you're talking about a gaming system that you mostly use while sitting in front of the computer, these are terrific choices.
Otherwise, I don't think you're going to get a whole lot more performance out of the midilans. I'd go with Klipsch's, which have an excellent reputation for build quality, etc.

thanks for the input guys, but waht do you think about the videologic series (DTS and sorroco crossfire?)

Nothing better in terms of bang for your bucks as the Cambridge Soundworks DTT2500, 5.1 speakers and includes and amplifier. Goes well with the SB Live 5.1. Costs around 179 at buy.com (retail is 299)

I'd have to suggest the Cambridge Soundworks DTT2500 speakers too, they kick ass.

What about the Cambridge DTT3500s? Are those any good?
