Speakers for my new PC

  Fatbelly 22:08 12 Jun 2005

I have just taken delivery of my new pride and joy.
I need a pair of speakers can anyone recommend a good set.

They will be used for playback of music CD's and listening to on line radio. So I want a reasonable pair. I want to pay up to £40.

Several major hi-fi speaker manufacturers also produce multimedia equivalents at prices that often surprise in view of their source; among them are Altec Lansing and Harmon Kardon, although the Bose models are somewhat more expensive (not a surprise!)

One source is click here whose TodayOnly page includes even keener prices on some products and often includes speakers.

There are also excellent examples from Creative, Logitech, Denon etc on the market.

If you have a Staples near you it may well have a comparator section allowing you to compare different sets of speakers, although the choice is somewhat lmited.

I have been using the Labtec 1060's for some time, I am very impressed with them for the money, & am quite happy listening to Cd's/Mp3's for long periods. Beware of large inexpesive speakers which often rattle & have sloppy bass.

Novatech do some reasonable ones click here the Creative ones are good have a look here for reviews click here .
Personally I have these click here good for the money and good sound as far as I'm concerned but then I'm not really fussy about music and I must admit the style you either love or hate.

Forget PC speakers, buy a mini hi-fi with an Aux connection, it should cost about the same. The sound will be incredible and you can plug a headset into the hi-fi for private listening without having to delve behind the PC.

I use a Rotell tuner/amp and 12" hi-fi speakers that cost me the pricly sum of £14 from a car boot. I can share my impressive opera download collection with the entire neighbourhood on a sunny Sunday morning.

But it won't be hi-fi - not by any stretch of the imagination...:-)

Hi-fi represents high fidelity.....

Just replaced the Rotell with a Technics, cost me £2.50. The sound is the same but the new unit looks a lot more modern.

these are excellent.

Use the collect at store option to get them at the web price, not the in-store price, and pick them up from your local store.

Ok, now we have established that i am an idiot. Not only did i post the wrong link, i then managed to do it again!!

To circumvent my foolish typing

go to pcworld.co.uk, use search box to find logitech z-3 speakers. £49.99 if you use collect at store or order on line.

Excellent sounding speakers for the money.

Sorry for the confusion.
