Hi everyone, guess i'm finally becoming more of a talker around TR... so, straight to business.
Next week is my birthday (may 30) and i already decided what to buy as a gift for myself: speakers. since my laptop speakers are more than adequate when it comes to just occasional (music and games) listening, but are jut horrible when it comes to heavy listening, they leave a lot to be desired...
So i finally got around it and here's what i got:
The biggest trouble is, i live in Ecuador, so buying through the interwebz is impractical, nearing on the impossible, besides i got a few contacts that can get me nice prices right here, trouble is my options are so limited
and the reviews about the sets i have around are not very...encouraging, so this are the sets i can get and the prices:Logitech x 530 http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/speakers_audio/home_pc_speakers/devices/211&cl=ES,ES
70$ (i now its spanish but aparently these guys don't exist on the english webpage...)Logitech x 240 http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/speakers_audio/home_pc_speakers/devices/232&cl=us,en
60$ - 50$Logitech Z cinema http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/speakers_audio/home_pc_speakers/devices/3712&cl=us,en
132$ - 120$ (maybe a little less)
I really don't care about the 2.1 / 5.1 difference since they won't be used mainly for gaming but for music listening, so i really care about the sound quality.
Other details i do care about are the connectivity options (ie. how the speakers connect to my laptop and what limitations exist) for example the z cinema use usb and i recall reading somewhere that the usb couldn't feed it properly.
5.1 are a bit of a downside for me since i don't have enough space to place so many speakers, but i could live with it.
please comment, and any feedback is greatly appreciated, since i've been thinking about this for a couple weeks
The media control included in the z cinema is a nice perk but reviews about it are a bit unconsistent, some saying they're good and some saying they're horrible
