    Not really, CP. It's still about the same.

    Not worth it at all, actually. They are extremely overrated, and over priced. They jack the price up on them just because they are classified as a computer speaker. You can get much better sound for the price, as long as you are willing to deal with a little extra space taken up.

    Or if you already have a receiver available:

    I haven't heard the Onkyo's but I personally like the Z5500's. I'm not upgrading any time soon, it's just a thought I had in mind but thanks for the link. It'll get me pointed in the right direction when I do decide to start looking around.

    Well, lets be fair here, you probably like the 5500's because you haven't heard things that sound better is all.

    Regardless if there is better stuff out there or not, they ARE great speakers, at least to me. Overrated or not it doesn't mean they suck. Have I heard better stuff? Oh yeah, wayyyy better. Do I still like the Z5500's, damn right I do!

    Don't worry mate mine doesn't have the sticker on the cooler itself, it's actually on the backside of the PCB;)
