    Edit 10/1/2013 : I would just like to apologise for my arrogance in many of my posts dated 2009. I didn't really know what I was talking about but stated it as a fact like I did. I've since learnt that there's nothing wrong in being the person seeking to learn from this forum as opposed to trying act as though I'm the person dishing out the information.



    Theres threads for old hardware, cases, graphics cards, cooling, and modding but no sound systems that ic an find so here goes:D.

    Post pics of your set up it can be your surround sound your stereo or a combo of the two just show us what you use to listen to stuff of your pc:D
    Give a brief bit of info bout its specs too.

    Well here goes, heres mine
    Its pioner Seperates set up (for thoes who dont no before stereos were all prebuilt together like built in CD players, tape players radio etc they used to all be seperate and hooked through a amp, an these are very hard to come by now:D)
    Its a 65 watt, not big i no, with huge response that most modern stereos carnt reach, IE it can get bigger bass and higher treble an all the frequencies inbetween, i have a vynl player, tape deck and radio currently in use.

    the reasoning for this being in hardware is the fact sound systems is hardware and for a great gaming experience decent audio hardware is just as important as the rest of a computer

    Got a Creative Inspire 5300 5.1 surround sound setup for the pc. Bought it off my uncle for $20. I got an Audigy II ZS with the Daniel_k drivers for my pc audio. I have an Altek Lansing 2.1 speaker system which I have hooked up to my 19" HDTV instead of the generic laptop speakers that are built in to the tv... sounds worlds apart.

    I wouldn't say that's true. They still make all of those components seperately. Only junky units come together. I run a system that's all seperate components with an amp, equalizer, receiver, etc. However mines more modern and costs a few grand.

    I don't have a camera, but it looks like two regular speakers on a desk with a headset plugged it.

    Here's my setup at the moment. Dell A525 30 Watt 2.1 speakers with a Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Platinum sound card. Speakers are decent, but the X-Fi Crystalizer added a whole new life to them, much, much better bass from the sub.

    Might replace it with the Logitech Z-5500, I was going to get the Z-2300 as it has a big sub, but want surround sound so was going to get the G51 but the sub isn't as big, so the Z-5500 it is :D

    Oh man wish I could have a valve amp, so would my dad for that matter.

    I'm currently using an X-FI XtremeMusic sound card connected to a Cyrus One amp driving a pair of Mission M30i speakers.
    Sound is good, the amp is truely amazing, it's about 20years old as it was my dads (although technically haven't given any money for it yet lol ;p) for the size of the speakers they pack a punch, very bassy for their size.
    I daren't go past 3 on the volume knob as it is stupidly loud for a 20W amp (very big peak current output I believe).

    The Cyrus amp was originally driving a set of Mission 781's with lead filled cyrus stands. These are my dads and sound truely fantastic. Have recently brought them back into use at home as they sound far better than the compact bose acoustimas system. 781s and the bose are driven with a Cyrus 6vs2 amp fed by a marrantz cd player.

    My system at uni:
