Unless you're talking specialty speakers the only PC speakers I have heard better are Klipsch ProMedia speakers. They have less distortion and powerful treble. Best in the biz. Before buying my set I was actually thinking of buying Klipsch until Futureshop had a boxing day sale for my Z-560 for $99!!! Insane price because it sold nearly $300 at the time. Hey DJ-Chris if you're thinking about buying the Z-5500 buy them here:

At $359.99 CAD its an insane price or try Klipsch. Those speakers are unbelievable.
I am just buying some new yorkville ysm1p's (studio monitors) that will cost me 700$ CDN with taxes for a pair

No money, expisally since I need a new sound card too

Going to get a stero card (m-audio audiophile 2496) for it

May run yamaha yst-m10's as rear's as well

Those are sweet. Guessing my the DJ in your name you need more specialized equipment. Paradigms are sweet too but I think I had this discussion with you in another thread.

I have been eying these speakers for a while, I might not be far behind you on buying these. My biggest dilemma is deciding on going surround or stereo.

Question: How long are the wires on the speakers? For fronts/center/rears? I am guessing they have extensions available to purchase?

Question: I am pretty sure I read that the stands can also be used for wall mounting. Have you done this? I am wondering how well that works, as I would like to eventually have them all wall mounted.

Newegg.com has them for $269.00 plus S&H of like $15.00. The box is huge and weights over 60LBS. SO the $15.00 is well worth it.

Yes you can wall mount them, but the center channel you can't mount. Which doesn't matter to me. I haven't wall mounted the Fronts and rears yet, but, i'm planning on it this weekend when i have more time.
I'm going to really crank this sucker up this weekend cause i'm havin' a few people over for a drunkin' feista... I'm sure the neighbors will complain... But, Freak'em... My brothers a cop in my town and he'll be there too... WOOOHOOO!!!!

Oh, by the way: IMO the Klipsch ProMedia speakers aren't better then the Logitech Z-5500's. A friend of mine has the $350.00 system and i've crank those up and they aren't as good as these. Even he said so. Then again the acoustic of my room and his room are very different. He's is in a small bedroom with tons of furniture and mine is in a larger room, hardwood floors, hardly any furniture, a plasma TV on the wall and 1 Sweet Recliner.... My room has more of a "Hall" echo to it. Which I really like. I should convince him to bring his stuff over and we can test them both out. I doubt he will though because it would too much of a pain in the butt to take it all apart...

You guys talk about watts like it's a measure of loudness.

Is it possible to ceiling mount the logitech's without sevre modifacation?


Unless I have a computer in a perfect square room in the middle, ceiling mount is a must

BTW all, Dell Small Business has the set for $239.99 and free shipping. I checked and it would be $257 out the door for me in California. That is the best price by far I have seen. This has gotten me excided. I might get those *****s!
