The trouble is, where the hell do you go to try out PC speakers?
It's not like 'propper' HT systems where you can go to a hifi store and have a listen. And £300 is a lot to spend if you don't know what you buying.
I was actually building a high end rig for a friend a few years back, and we decided on these speakers, so he took the gamble on them. Once I heard them I decided it was time I got my own.
I know what you mean though, you are basically looking blindly for them. IMO even in a store most speaker setups don't really do any justice for them cause they usually have bad music playing through them. Also at our best buy they are hooked up, but all lined up in a row against the wall and routed through one of those little switchers so you can compare the speakers, but who knows how well they are even hooked up cause whatever person working in that department would have set it up.
