At the moment I am running some rather old 2.1 Creative Inspire speakers via a Creative Audigy 2 Platinum ZS. Bought that because it was a bargain £40 brand new..... Anyway, decided it is about time for an upgrade, speaker wise, especially seeing as people are asking me what I might like for Christmas! The little old Inspires do do a pretty good job. I don't game, I simply want a decent set of 2.1s to listen to music from. For software I use Foobar. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I might take a look/listen at? System at the moment is pretty old, too, but about to be upgraded. Athlon XP 2500+ Barton (to be replaced by the 4000+) ASRock board (undecided about replacement yet!) I don't think you really need any more system info! Anyway, any suggestions would be eagerly set upon! Thanks chaps!
