I finally upgrade to a 5.1 Logitech z-5500 system because of the sound quality and effect. The bass is awesome and the sound is crystal clear. I can hear the thundering, rumbling bass and yet clear raining, rain drop sound at the same time. With a widescreen monitor, it is just the same as watching a movie in the cinema because of the amazing sound quality. It is easy to set up and could function as a home theatre system. One thing I do not like is the cables that are short and run arounds the room which is kinda messy and cluttered. I would have preferred it to have wireless connectivity like the z-5450 system. The subwoofer should be shielded from any neighboring computer or monitors since it has a strong magnet. Excellent speaker system for movies, gaming, music and tv shows.
