Just saw the price of the XMod. I'll just buy a new set of wireless speakers or buy a monitor with decent??? monitor speakers.

Get some logitech speakers for a good price. They are only like $50 along with your monitor. You cant seriously think that built-in speakers are anywhere near any decent speaker system.

I got rid of my speakers and splurged on a high quality set of cans and could not be happier, one of the best moves I have made.

A good set of cans with a good soundcard = Heaven.
