The way I might have said it might have seemed like i really hate bose, but i dont. bose speakers sound good, but they do not sound as good as their price. thats all I'm saying. when i heard their speakers in their show room, it seemed like it was lacking something I just did not know what it was.

and ofcourse my $100 speakers are not going to sound as good as bose's $4000 dollar speakers. all im saying is the guy is could get a better sounding system for $100.

Ok yes thats better i can agree with you for that. Its for style consious people who want good sound. People who want real sound will be gettin Acoustic Energy, Polk Audio, Boston acoustics or something on a similar level.

For strictly computer usage, just stick with Logitech. z2300 if you want a deal, z5500 if you want big sound.

I agree. I've got Sennheiser PC150 headphones, and they have excellent sound quality. they're great at all frequencies (well, that people can actually hear...), including bass. Coupled with my X-Fi, I get really good surround sound too.

one of my friends got some Altec Lansing 121i speakers for AU$45
they've got really good quality sound, and good bass. I would recommend these as excellent value.
