Hey guys, I'm thinking of upgrading my 2.1 speakers. I've been using Creative T3s and I really like them but for some reason for the past year, the music would randomly get loud then soft especially if whatever is playing, video or audio is bass heavy.
Not sure what's the cause, probably some hardware issue (there was a point where I drove the sub really hard and left the volumes really high but these are powerful speakers i've no idea why they would spoil). If anyone can shed light on this would be great!
But anyway so I'm looking to upgrade from these T3 speakers. I play some games like Battlefield 3, Shogun 2 quite the variety, and listen to music which includes rock, more rock, and some techno/electronic music.
I like my bass but neighbours are always a porblem ): Hence I switched to headphones.
I like my headphones for the ability to turn up the volume real loud, but this THX surround Pro from my Creative X-fi Surround HD USB is really not working out for me and sound seems better through 2.1 speakers without this BS turned on, than on my headphones (which sound so weird with THX off probably because the sound is too close to the ear?
I'm getting DT770s tomorrow and am gonna try them out, the HD558s did not work for me...so hopefully they may work out...
But for now I'm looking for great 2.1 speakers under £200. Will probably get them from amazon.co.uk
Thanks and greatly appreciate all suggestions and the time you give to help me. Cheers!
P.S. Any comments on Harman Kardon Soundsticks III? I'm newbie at this so please be kind! :P
