I use real "boutique" speakers. They are superior for offering a flat response, excellent stereo positioning, and tight accurate bass. I've tried nearly every computer speaker out there on the market, and they all sound very thin and "reedy", and those that offer subwoofers, for the most part, lack mid-range punch. Of course, I also connect my guitar to my PC, and mid-range frequencies are EXACTLY where the guitar sits....so it's very easy to notice a lack of frequency response for me personally. I have four of these for main speakers(left/right front, left/right rear): http://www.athenaspeakers.com/products/as-b2-overview/ Plus one of these for a center channel: http://www.athenaspeakers.com/products/as-c1-overview/ Plus 2 of these subs: http://www.athenaspeakers.com/products/as-p4000-overview/ And two of these for side surround: http://www.athenaspeakers.com/products/ws-60-overview/ Plus this 7.2 channel amp: http://usa.yamaha.com/products/audi..._u/?mode=model#list=within&mode=paging&page=1 I think it's pretty obvious to see how my $5k home audio system for my PC is superior to any PC-centric set.
