Suggest a good 5.1 or 6.1 speaker system for less than 5k!!!


Yup I finally need to retire my ageing Sony MHC GX 2000 and need to get myself a all rounder 5.1 or better speaker system for my PC. I need the speakers for games, movies and music. I'am currently using the SupremeFX (ADI 1988b) soundcard on my system which came with my motherboard, which supports 7.1 channel speakers. My budget is at the max 5k..but that can be stretched a little bit for a superior product..

Got lost here: Creative Speaker Systems - GigaWorks 2.0, Inspire & iPod docking speakers

I really shy away from Creative when it comes to speakers.

If the X530 is ~4.5k, then its worth it. Else, get the 251i.

Also, what Soundcard are you using? If its onboard, then save cash and just get the 251i.

Re: Suggest a good 5.1 or 6.1 speaker system for less than 5k!!!

@Ad1tya: I'am using the following for my soundcard:


SupremeFX (ADI 1988b)
The SupremeFX audio card is designed to provide you the best game sound experience. With 24bit/192kHz full sampling in all surround channels, no matter if you're hearing your game through headphones or 7.1 surround speakers, we'll deliver the effects loud and clear!

DTS Connect™
This feature is consists of two elements: DTS interactive and DTS NEO : PC. DTS interactive re-encodes your stereo or multi -channel sound into a DTS audio signal and send it out from your PC to any DTS enabled system. While DTS NEO : PC turns your stereo audio such as MP3, WMA, CD, and other sound format into a convincing multi - channel audio experience.

Re: Suggest a good 5.1 or 6.1 speaker system for less than 5k!!!

Forget the 251i. The original 251 series (The one I have) were good, but I heard the latest 251i selling in the market have slightly inferior specs and not up the original series in terms of audio quality. The 251 has been actually been phased out in the rest of the world, but it seems they are selling these cheaper, lower quality versions in countries like ours.
