K, picked out my reciever, now I need 6.1 speaker setup....Any recommendations
    #3881602 - 03/07/05 07:04 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Sorry for another recommendation post but last time I got a computer, nobody decided to say anything till I already bought it--then I started to get flamed. For a reciever, Im either gonna get the Kenwood VR-7080
6.1 Channels, THX: Select, Stereo Power: 100 W, Surround Power: 100 W, MultiBrand Remote Control, Decoders: Dolby Digital?, DTS ES...
or
the Onkyo 6.1Channel THX/Dolby Digital EX/DTS-ES Receiver

Now I need some good speakers....I heard those logitech z680 speakers were nice but they dont come in a 6.1 setup. THe only specification is I want them to be THX certfified. Any suggestions?

You'll get better audio if you hook your computer up to a home component system than running computer speakers. This kinda depends on where your computer is located in your house of course..

ok....so which one!!! My computer is in the corner of my living room about a 20 by 25 foot space---my theatre system will be on the one side of the room. I can just get a basic 6.1 package but Im sure there will be people here who say---"those speakers suck you shouldve gotten these" as soon as I buy them.

hehe.. sorry i didn't give any recommendations. I haven't been in the market for new speakers for several years. I know that Infinity makes some quality stuff at reasonable prices. It really depends on how much you're willing to spend. If you tell us how much you're willing to spend I'm sure some people here could give you better recommendations.

The best advice I can give with my outdated knowledge is to go to a place like Sound Advice and listen to a bunch of different brands that are just above your price range. Pay close attention to the differences in high, low and mid frequencies. Try to single them out and see which sound you like best. Shitty speakers will sound muffled, have no highs, and distorted bass, etc..

Find what you like, then go home and look them up online or on ebay or something and you'll find the speakers 20-60% cheaper even including shipping.. unless you choose something obnoxiously huge and heavy.
