  1. First of all my piority is Gaming -> Music -> Movie.
    After i've read a tons of reviews i've decided to get an Auzen X-Fi Prelude and now its only left the speakers.. i've read a lot of the reviews/comments as well but none of them had really mentioned about the difference of 5.1 of Z5500 with the 7.1of S750.
    What i know is that 7.1 and 5.1 it is only 2 additional speakers but will it make any difference with/without 2 additional speakers?
    What i already know is that some users said the s750 had an issue with the "long life", it's easy to die...so does it means z5500 will last longer?
    Please tell me some more of the good and bads between them and if possible to comment about the Prelude card (i was thinking to buy the Razer Barracuda/X-Fi XtremeGamer Fatality Pro/Prelude and after ton of reviews i've decided to get the Prelude(7.1 card) because i've never seen a comment saying that prelude is not able to beat those 2 previous cards).
    Any comments/feedback will be a help for me (don't comment about prices!) thanks in advance guys
    Who own them please tell me ur feelings regarding them as well ^.^

    aside from having 2 additional speakers,its another channel that will only
    fire up a sound when its needed for additional surround effect.

    you mean the whole speaker system?or the built-in amplifier or speakers only.

    for the construction design of Logitech Z5500,i find it a bit sturdy
    in terms of speakers life.for one is the subwoofer or any type of DRIVER
    (another term for speakers),bigger SUB's enclosure for the 10 inch driver
    macthed up with a 4 inch flared port which is very very essential when we
    talk about the air compression and sound quality.

    likewise,i like the Z5500's larger heatsink at the back,which indicates that
    system amplifier is passively cooled through in extended use.just imagine
    how hot this heatsink gets.it really needs it.and an addtional safety net for
    the amplifier's life is the replaceable 4 A slow blow fuse.

    what impresses me with Gigaworks S750 is that,its Down-Firing
    enclosure design which gives an impressive hard hitting bass sounding.
    and the 7.1 format capability of course.

    Not much of a difference in both models in terms of sound features/effects.

    i'd go for the Z5500.

    You're welcome :)

    and oh..don't put the Sub near anything that isn't bolted down when you crank it...trust me
    keep it at least 20 inch away from any electronic devices..
