The Boss, in her highest wisdom, as instructed me to replace my beloved headphones with speakers as she can not listen to her stolen mp3's and clean house.

Please recomend a low-cost, 6 channels speaker system.

Thanks!

Do you really want to go low cost? Music or good game/movie audio is worth a little green IMHO.

I don't know what your willing to spend but I love my Klipsch.

This is what I have. I love em and at $320 + change about 35 less than I gave a few months back.

Low-cost 6.1's usually have the "Creative" name in front of them and their purchase is usually closely followed by the purchase of something with "Logitech" or "Klipsch" in front of it.

They should fit the bill though.

Klipsch 2.1 Speakers. THX certified. Great sounding ...200watts. And for the price... about $200 or less depending on your area stores.

for a C-NOTE you can get altec lansing 5.1 sourround system, and i think my squadie DIABLO has a set as well. for the price im very happy.

5 satellites
1 subwoof

front right speaker has volume, surround, center volume knobs, with a mini jac for the headphones.

leangth on the cables for size of "surround" area is quite lengthy.

whatever your purchase is...may THE BOSS be pleased http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif (your main concern)

GAU-8 Altec are all right... but the Klipsch 2.1 will out do the sound on most of the 4.1 or 6.1 set ups... plus the 3D is mint for 3 speakers.
Also you don't need a lot of Space for 3 Speakers.

I dont think I could play without the thunder of a surround system. I too have the Klipsch 4.1 with the sub right under my desk faceing my legs. Boy it channels that low end right at me,,I love it.

Logitech z-640's are good value for gaming and movies. I've had mine for ~6 months and am happy with them- but I'm not an audiophile who can nitpick about them.
They were definitely a big step up from the 2 speakers I had before.

I checked out alot of systems bofore going
with the KLIPSCH. The highs sizzled, the mids
were nice-n-punchy and the low end never once
clipped.

Well, I ended up with the logitechs for $79.

The right-rear channel doesn't work, so I have to take them back and get another set.

Gosh the sound in FB sucks. I mean really.. whats with the seperation? I'm fine with positional effects, but having the focus point so narrow that most speakers aren't used unless the camera looks thier direction is just ******ed.

Luckily, there is a headphone jack on those speakers, so she can listen to her stolen mp3s on the speakers and I can continue to use my digital headphones (which I love so much).

I coulda bought more switches. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif
