Creative speakers have never impressed me at all. Even their SoundWorks and Cambridge lines have always been undersized and tinny.

To be honest for £30 my P5800s were hardly poor.


But nothing on my new set....

Bought Logitec Z-530 5.1 a while back, nothing but good to say about them. In a small room (12X10) they completely satisfy and turned up can be heard about the house.

Using a tube amp (Little Dot II +) with mullard tubes as a headphone amp for my Sennheiser HD595s. Whenever I want quality music at decent volume, there's no substitute for that combo. Of course, having an EMU0404 helps as well.

Anyhoo, these speakers go TOO loud! I have the dial 1/4 of the way round and my whole room is physically shaking.
