  1. Hey
    I'm looking to buy some new speakers, looking for a 5.1 setup, with s/pdif(the digital optical thing).

    any suggestions, price range is kinda fixed, about $100 is about all i can afford, can go up to $125, but would rather not.

    Look at the other treads, I asked a simmilar question. I would choose the z-504's from Logitech. But for $125, you probably aren't going to find a 5.1 thats worth anything. Just my thought.
