> 2 guys talking with a calm music in the background, one of the guys had a strong russian accent

Reminds me of how the Logitech X-530 speakers would pick up Eastern-European radio frequencies on the jack or badly insulated wires or something like that when my PC was off. Freaked me out when I suddenly started hearing Russian people speaking in my room in the dead of night.

Actually my spekers are very old and only have Rca cables and the headphones conector:

the only way i make them work was to conect my speakers to a bluetooth little device i have and then conect them to the mac, that way works

Honestly, you can go as cheap as you’d like depending on bass needs.

I have my TD17 connected to an old Logitech x530 and it gets lourder than I need.

I’ve got this Logitech 5.1 set, I’ve had them probably over ten years (I don’t remember them being this expensive then either), and I think they sound great. The biggest problem is that they use 3.5mm connectors instead of digital, so it eats up all the audio connections in the back of my mobo. Also, it can be hard getting the rears mounted somewhere, because of wires.

3.3GHz six core AMD processor (fx-6100), 10GB of ram, and a Radeon 7450 GPU. The only thing I needed to add was a hard drive, but I had one sitting around from another dumpster dived computer that I gutted.

I also found this sound system next to it:

Dumpster diving has given me so much awesome stuff, as has thrifting.

Well, just from what I was reading it seems its always best to go with proven deivers and crossover design, especially for someone like me who has not made any enclosures. Due to that, I didn’t find any very small options that had significant plans. Other than that barrier, I have no issues with the mecahnics of hooking anything up.

Honestly most of the stuff I see online and youtube for a form factor I am looking for rarely has specs or parts listed.

I mean honestly right now I have a little D-class amp powering two of the speakers from an old set of computer speakers (https://www.amazon.com/Logitech-X-530-5-1-Speaker-System/dp/B0002WPSCG/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1467651033&sr=8-7&keywords=logitech+5.1+computer).

If it sounds better than that, I probably wouldn’t complain and just salvage the parts in the future for a more robust build as you suggest.

Source would be mostly streaming or mp3 as well. So my question is, if I get a driver like the HiVi B3N, will it be just as useful as a mid later one as the FE85s (assuming i eventually take it apart to do something else with)?

They’re logitechs. They’re basically the same version of these but from the early 90’s. I don’t have an external DAC and I have no idea what my laptop uses (It’s all stock toshiba parts).

I used these, a slightly cheaper different version of iPeeLavaLampGoo’s suggestion, but like you’ve already found out, unless you’re using the Optical audio output, which these don’t, then you’re going to need a receiver of some sort, or just put up with simulated 5.1. Tbh, I love these speakers and the simulated 5.1 is still pretty impressive and the subwoofer has a hell of a kick on it.

Hi I am looking for a small improvement to my current non-audiophile system.

Budget: 250USD or less because shipping fees to my country are crazy high.

Usage in Order of Priorities: 1. Gaming 2. Music. 3. Netflix Series.

Room size: 2m X 3m x 2.50m

Current Setup: Logitech 5.1 X-530, GA-Z97X-Gaming-7(don’t know if this MoBo is good enough or if I need some external DAC/AMP)

Extra Equipment: Fiio Q1, Scarlett 2i2, Sennheiser HD 598 cs, Hifiman HE-400i.

What I think I need is probably a pair of speakers and a sub? and maybe an amp for those? I don’t want to loose de 5.1 setup as I will still need it for gaming. Althought I could get a better 5.1 or 7.1 even to replace the current speakers.

In any case thanks for your inputs.

HDMI isn’t really what you need to be thinking about when it comes to sound fidelity if you have other options. Optical is superior to HDMI anyway. And most sound cards are not going to give you anything more than onboard audio will unless you don’t have all the jacks. HDMI is good if you are using a receiver in a home theater system, but since you are setting up in your office it doesn’t really matter. If your motherboard supported it, you could use the optical audio port to send it to your home theater if you were using one. No HDMI needed in that instance.

A good set of headphones are the only way you are going to really notice any nuanced sounds. Preferably one that is surround. I use a g930 wireless Logitech that uses simulated software surround. Obviously there are more higher end headphones with better sound but you don’t have to go too crazy.

If you are looking to fill a room with sound then you could get desktop speakers for that, also preferably surround but even I don’t have mine set up that way. I use a TV for a monitor and plug my speakers into my 5.1 onboard sound using an old Logitech x530 desktop speakers. Surely there are higher end than those, but the concept is the same.

Bottomline, if you really want to hear all of ED’s sound goodness, you will want to use a headset or headphones. You don’t need to get some high end soundcard if your motherboard already supports 5.1/7.1. A nice set of desktop speakers will do what you want. Stereo with a woofer would be fine.

Edit: I just looked up my speakers and the price is insane on Amazon. I bought these over 5 years ago at K-mart and they were 80 bucks. Do not buy from Amazon, but if you can find them cheaper, they aren’t a bad bet. http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-X-530-5-1-Speaker-System/dp/B0002WPSCG/ref=sr_1_1/188-4656819-8759715?ie=UTF8&qid=1442088736&sr=8-1&keywords=logitech+x530

Also, I went and checked that AMA comment about HDMI, and I believe he was recommending HDMI in place of s/pdif in a home theater setup. Using HDMI in general won’t be any better than just plugging speakers into your computer directly if you have that option.

These coupled with this, and I have been set since ’06. I want to have a decent turntable and better speakers eventually, but nothing any time soon.

I have these and i love them, the sound quality is brilliant, the surround sound is very immersive when watching movies and gaming, rich bass and they pack a massive punch. I’m not sure what your budget is but i love mine to death.
