Maybe b/c $200 is still $200.hikeskool said:I don't know why you wouldn't upgrade.

Now this is where things get realistic. Do you really think you need a 500watt system for playing the odd song, watching a DVD or playing Half Life 2? Well, I don't.... But do I care? HELL NO! Do I need a 400HP Pontiac Firebird to go get a burger? No, but it sure is fun isn't it.
Excess is good because the power is always there when you need it.
But excess can also get you into some rather weird and bad situations also. Take me for instance, I am happily testing the system volume levels out in the Tweaknews office by gaming and listening to a little Lil' Jon & the Eastside Boyz and I thought all was well..........until the next morning.
At 9:00am I was woken up with a rather loud knocking at my suite's front door. Opening the door revealed the building's property manager handing me a noise violation complaint that was filed and the manager's office by my next door neighbor. This would sound perfectly right seeing I was easily hitting 130+dB when testing the system at higher volume levels but there is one interesting thing I have to inform you about my neighbor...........
She is completely deaf........No joke, she can't hear a thing. Nadda...Zilch....
What I guess caused her to file the complaint is that I cleared 13 pictures off of the adjacent wall where our two suites attach. And yes, that wall was the same wall where the subwoofer was placed. From what I was told, I vibrated that wall so badly that almost all of her paintings, photos, trinkets or whatever vibrated and fell down.
So what's the moral of the story? This system is so loud it will piss even deaf people off.......

According to the reviews, these Logitechs are supposed to sound a little better than that Klipsch.Florida Doc said:Whoa! This is why I LOVE the [H]otDEALS forum!
I can't wait until these bad boys arrive! I'm guessing they won't sound that much better than my Kilpsch 5.1 Promedia setup, but they'll end up costing me next to nothing after I sell my current speakers and the printer!
lmao ... i had the same thought process the other night.zero002021 said:This is very tempting.
... Just wondering if you can buy ink for the printer in-store or if you have to buy direct from Dell?
Ehh, screw it, I'm buying!
I'm sure your neighbors can't wait to hear your new speakers either.Pringals said:lmao ... i had the same thought process the other night.
I currently have a set of the cheap Logitech 5.1s (dont' remember the name right now). They served me very well over the last few years, but I think it is time to step it up. I plan on hooking one of the other inputs on these to my new OTA HDTV tuner I am looking to get. I can't wait to see this in action.
...shoot good Buddy... these may be pretty nice "Computer Speakers" ... but they aren't even going to come close to what my Atlantic Technologies System 8200 THX Ultra 2 speakers in my basement theater do.beowulf7 said:I'm sure your neighbors can't wait to hear your new speakers either.
Wow, those are some sweet speakers! OK, so your neighbors are relatively far away. I live in an apt. complex and have neighbors below me and on either side. They'll be thumping to some hard-hitting trance music every night, sprinkled w/ a liberal dosage of gunfire from Doom 3.Pringals said:...shoot good Buddy... these may be pretty nice "Computer Speakers" ... but they aren't even going to come close to what my Atlantic Technologies System 8200 THX Ultra 2 speakers in my basement theater do.
(I don't own that exact set...I bought mine 6-7 years ago. The 8200's replaced my set model. They could pass as twins though.)
Besides... if my neighbors hear these... that will definatly say something! (nearest house is 80+/- feet away, across a street.)
How are you getting free shipping? These are the only options that show up for me:beowulf7 said:Even though the printer deal is dead, you can get these speakers and some other junk (that Dell 720 printer is junk, after all) for $214, which is only $6 more than the original deal.
Add the Z-5500 to your cart for $239-something. Then add this wrist rest for $9.87. Then apply the $35 off $300 coupon (code GV377LSW212XB4). So your total should then be:
($299 - auto 20% off) + $10 - ($35 off $300) = $214 w/ free shipping + tax
