    5.0/5,
    "Klipsch ProMedia 5.1 Computer Sound System"
    Pros - Best sounding PC speaker system ever
    Cons - No longer in production
    I've had this Klipsch setup for almost 10 years (2002) and they still rock. When they were introduced in 2001 and they set the standard of Hi-Fi PC speakers. I did have the amp serviced (not uncommon, after it 7 years of good use) by Klipsch a couple of years back for around $100 and they sound better than ever. The original suggested list price was $349.99 for these amazing speakers. They are hooked up to an Auzentech Meridian 7.1 sound card with a LM4562NA OpAmp mod. With this PC setup, I can listen to my music and video in 5.1 and get a lively soundstage in HD high fidelity. Otherwise, I connect my Audio-Technica ATH-A700 headphones to the phones port on the control tower and it sounds really good, too. Below are some original marketing and product specifications:
