Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

As it in the title says, i am currently searching for good speakers or a soundbar for 100-200 $. The brand is not relevant, i just want it to have good performance and not something "gaming looking stuff" .

Logitech makes decent sounding speakers for a good price. My fam also has a LG soundbar with subwoofer that sounds great. I think it was around $120 at Walmart. 


 If you wanna discuss the X58 platform and get tips and advice: General X58 Xeon/i7 discussion. If you want to discuss old Star Wars games like Battlefront II and KOTOR, check out my thread: Anyone still playing old Star Wars games? 

 

Long live his RGBness, @Damascus! And Fractal Design/SeaSonic dude, @Ordinarily_Greater is awesome as well! Also the man who introduced me to the glorious XCMR, @WhisperingKnickers.

I have a couple of options for you, depending on your preferred configuration.

 

If you'd prefer a 2.1 speaker configuration (L, R + Subwoofer), the Creative A250 set's AMAZING for the price you pay for, which is around $60 CAD. This is the set I use in my studio and I honestly can't say anything negative about them, other than the fact that there's no independent volume control for the subwoofer, which I prefer anyway.

 

If you would be interested in a surround sound configuration (5.1), I can vouch for the Logitech Z506. They're much pricier when comparing to the Creative A250 set, coming in at about $180 CAD, but they're definitely worth it. A buddy of mine has these set up in his home theatre and they sound great.

Prob the best or among the best in this budget, though the bass response is lacking. You can add a sub later on.
