Hi guys, I'm stressing out trying to get my son some 2.1 speakers for Christmas and seeing as everything has been a mad rush I've got until the end of the day to order online otherwise his main present won't turn up in time.

Really need some advice as i don't know too much when it comes to speakers. I've narrowed down the list by reading reviews and the top of my price range seems to be either;

"Klipsch Pro Media 2.1 THX Certified Speakers" or "Logitech 2.1 Speaker System Z623" I almost ordered the Klipsch last night for him but was a little put off by a few people posting that they've had trouble with the sub.. though many others were giving them the highest of praise.

 

Max budget is £140, he uses his speakers for music (all different kinds, from rock to hiphop and even some classical) / TV / gaming (PC & PS3) so need a good 'all-round' setup.

Could i get your advice asap please lads as like i said i need to order them tonight.

 

Thank you very much

- Christmas Dad!!

 

Klipsch - £139.99 / Logitech - £136.99 (best prices i could find)

 

 

TL;DR - Best 2.1 all-rounder music, gaming, movies etc. (budget: £140 max.)

Klipsch will be fine. Had them for years. No trouble. Decent sound.

 

A bit late now but a cheap amp and some passive speakers (2.0) can also be a good option for better SQ (music) although a sub is fun for gaming.

Okay thanks sparklyflea :) Bookshelf speakers would be a bit of a hassle, especially with lack of time, i was looking at the M-Audio A20's(?) too i think but i know he wants a sub with it and he doesn't have much space for them to be honest. Anyone else for the Klipsch? Is that basically the better of the two? Klipsch vs. Logitech's? Can't seem to find a better 2.1 other than those two, they seem to stand out... open to suggestions though, have a couple of hours left before cut-off time.

Thanks again :)

Just noticed the Minx M5 2.1 setup on the Winter Gift List, they're selling on Amazon for £99.99.. Klipsch beat these too?

Ah! I have 11hrs left before my order has to be in. Would the Klipsch also be able to be linked up with the PS3 along with PC at the same time? If so what's the best type of cable to get? Thanks.

Just a follow up, the Klipsch went down a treat, very loud at only half volume and great bass.

Thanks for the input. :)

They were out there for 99-119 for the last couple of days. Hope you got a good deal.
