    Genius, a leading manufacturer of computer peripherals, today announces their biggest and baddest GX Gaming Series 2.1 speaker system yet - the SW-G2.1 3000.

    Raising the GX Gaming Series to a new level, this 70 watt RMS speaker system includes the GX series loudest subwoofer at 6.5-inches providing 40 watts of heart-thumping bass, two 15 watt curvaceous satellite speakers, and a separate control box for easy adjustment of volume and bass. The subwoofer, speakers, and control box can be placed to maximize the acoustics and layout of any room while still having volume and bass control at your fingertips.

    Using 3-inch metal cones, the SW-G2.1 3000 satellite speakers play middle to high range audio vividly and vibrantly. The audio from the satellite speakers complement the deep, rich bass of the wooden cabinet subwoofer pounding out frequencies as low as 35 Hz. Able to achieve high volumes at low distortion, the Genius SW-G2.1 3000 speaker system can help keep the party going all night as well as provide the full spectrum of sound for games, movies and music.

    Not only does the control box make volume and bass adjustments simple and easy no matter where the speakers are located, but on the front it has a headphone and microphone jack for private listening and chatting while gaming. The rear of the control box includes more connections, increasing the flexibility of the SW-G2.1 3000. The 3.5 mm standard input allows for instant hookup to PCs and external audio devices such as MP3/CD players, and the two RCA jacks are designed for connections to game consoles, DVD players and TVs.

    Offering booming bass, crisp middle to high range sound, and the flexibility to connect to gaming, music, and other entertainment devices, the SW-G2.1 3000 speaker system epitomizes the high-quality that the GX Gaming Series represents in a louder more versatile design.

    PC speakers is one thing, but why make them look so cheap as well?

    Genius made some pretty good speakers for the SW series. But this is just ridiculous. Looks so cheap and ugly compared to wood imitation on the older models. Why not follow that?

    The market is flooded with 2.1 Speakers. What happened with 4.1, 5.1 or even 7.1 setups??

    the Onkyo HT-S3500 comes with a receiver. that entire package cost $20 more than the Logitech Z906.

    I am talking about simple 5.1 setups, without receivers. You don't need those, specially if you already have a decent sound card...

    why would you want to use a sound card if you don't have to?

    If by 'decent' you mean a Xonar DX/D2X or Creative Titanium Pro then those will never sound as good or come anywhere close to sounding as good as the ONKYO HT-S3500's. Those Onkyo's alone probably completely blow my Z5500's out of the water in terms of sound quality.

    all you need to do is use one of the HDMi ports from your graphics card and let the reciever do all the work

    Even with a good soundcard a receiver often ends up being the way to go. You get more connectivity options and you don't have to worry about powering your speakers.

    it's hard to beat the value.

    remote control, radio, headphone out, iPhone support, Burr-Brown DAC, Master DTS/TrueHD decoding, Amplifier, 4x HDMI 1.4a, legacy I/O, etc. it won't take up any space inside your computer and you can hook up a PS3, XBOX 360, PC, TV/Monitor.

    Agreed, I have an essence ST hooked up to an old Denon receiver (can't remember exact model) and then Bowers and Wilkins CM5's in 5.1 with some random sub (the sub is ancient, can't remember its name). And like bumblebee said, you can hook up other devices without having to swap cables around everywhere.

    On another note with powering speakers, i've seen speakers that require a power plug for EACH SPEAKER! (I think they were Definitive's).

    That's -10db i assume? 35Hz would be pretty decent then!

    RMS or Peak ratings?

    as for the z906 logitech, i'd rather had the z-5500 anyway... the sub is smaller in the newer model (though the same power rating) 8in vs 10in i think and the control deck looks cheaper on the newer model as well. edit: actually the sub is weaker too, 165w vs 188w

    Most likely PMPO. Not that Watts would matter anyways, as speakers can range from 80dB/W to over 90dB/W - a 10x difference in the output levels, so a 10W 90dB/W speaker can produce the same sound levels as a 100W 80dB/W one.
    The Logitech's are both o.k. units for the money, but i still prefer my Yamaha receiver (much more versatile) and some good DIY speakers to the Z5500 or Z906.
