Hmmm, gee, thanks mate, missed that one...
At least Towelie is going into the right direction...

I think the general opinion is the Z-5500's are the ones to go for. But I would say if you're getting a set for HT as well, and are prepared to spend more money, do so. This setup i've got now has amazing sound quality. I'm hearing things in films that i've just not heard before. Awesome bass from the sub too, really low and tight. OK, it was almost 500, but worth ever penny of it and then some.

When I was young I had a very nice HT set up, and bought each component at a time as the bundled ones were never as good.

It had been a long time since then, and I just bought a $200 sound card as the first component in the system. So really all I need is good speakers (5.1) with a subwoofer that has an internal or external amp.

I do love movies, and watch them regularly, but I am mostly into gaming and music now. So what I am looking for is something that does well at all the above.

I really don't need a system that will rattle windows, bass is nice, and necessary, but not the most important aspect to me I would rather have one where clarity and sound quality is paramount.

I finally decided to get the Z-5500's and I think I made the right choice. Anyhow they will be here next week and I will know for sure.

You are right about that. I can't believe the power this system has for the money. my last receiver cost more than what I paid for the xonar and the z-5550 combined.

I really am impressed and don't think there is anything even close to this system for $215 on the logitech, and $180 for the zonar. I am very happy indeed.

-Some basic sound adjustments (bass, treble)

If you have any others to suggest in a similar price range, please do.

TIA
I would go for the creative gigaworks G550W

The bass is really cool sound better then the logitech crap.
The treble and the med sounds very good and if ya got a creative sound card it will make the set even better.

I had logitech Z-5500 and i dint like it one bit i had problems with it like Plops when like a phone is around this problem is kinda know by logitech and it seems the dont rly care support of logitech is suckie

same goes for creative but the creative rly show what the THX for stands.
