I can remember the first pair of speakers I ever bought for my computer back in 1988. They sucked. Every pair of speakers I ever bought sucked until I finally broke down and purchased the Klipsch 4.1 set. Finally I had a set of speakers that could shake my walls and give my dvds some justice. I should have known that I wasn’t going to be satisified for too long. Quickly I began to see 5.1 speakers sets, then 6.1 sets, and now 7.1 sets. This 7.1 set by Creative will more than likely be my next set. Hard to go wrong with 700 watts of power.
