Default Are these well priced high performance speakers.

I need to get some new speakers and was wondering if these ones are a good deal.

Holy crap! The Z5500's are selling for that? Wow. I should have bought them!
I got my Z5300e's for 100$. Heh.

i have the x-530 and its not awesome. its pretty good. the bass is a bit boomy at high volume. it depends what you're used to, if you're used to regular speakers, then you'll like em. but i would like more bass. oh and sometimes you can actually hear hte air that comes out of the hole.. kinda annoying, hehe. but still, for the price, theyr'e great.

as for the z5500, 188watt just for the sub, should be nice.

I suggest you get a Sennheiser HD595 or Audio Technica ATH-A900, along with a PA2V2 headphone amp.
