Default Logitech X-540 5.1 Surround Sound System

Hello everyone, I've been on the lookout for a good in-expensive 5.1 system for my new rig and I was wondering what you guys think of Logitech's X-540 5.1 system? I can get them for around 90 bucks.

Keep an eye out, both Best Buy and NCIX have had them for $69 recently. I don't think you can get a better kit for the same price.

I see you live in Ajax. If you really want to go inexpensive and aren't afraid of refurbished, get these X540's. I bought a set about a mont ago. They are in perfect working condition. One speaker had a 1 mm scratch on the side of it.

I scooped an X530 5.1 setup at a garage sale last summer for $25 and I love it! Go for it.

I purchased those last september for 49.99 new at Futureshop. pretty good but recently I've been dealing with a lot of static. it's their when ever I turn the volume nob unless I turn it precisely to a level to avoid it. Luckily I bought the two warranty a long with it just in case, too lazy to pack it all up and return it though :/

Volume knobs can sometimes do this. Try blowing with compressed air. It's worked for me a few times.

I bought an X530 4 years ago and they are still going strong with no problems what so ever. Great speakers, and really benefit from a decently tuned sound card, they pump out alot of bass for the low RMS. From what ive seen the x540s are just a rebuilt x530s so id expect them to easily impress at that low price.
