I have an Extigy USB sound card paired up with the Logitech X-530 5.1 speakers. Lately I've noticed a bad fuzzy sound comming out of the speakers. Its most noticeable in songs and games, its also noticeable in loud scenes of movies. My question is, do you think its the sound card or speakers?

If you tell Logitech its the speakers they'll happily send you replacements free of charge advanced RMA, so you could try that. They have the best RMA service I've ever dealt with.

However, IMO, I think it's your USB sound card, there's a reason that good sound cards are on the PCI bus to avoid degredation of signal etc. I would personally get an X-Fi for ~$100 and you'll see a SIGNIFICANT improvement of sound and a loss of the fuzzy sound.

what's advanced RMA mean? they ship first? i'm just wondering because my logitech speakers have been acting up for months but too lazy to send them in.

Yep Advanced RMA means you leave a credit card number for security and they ship first.

I love cross-shipping and advanced RMAs. Kingston was the same way when I was havnig problems up the whazoo with my RAM last year.
