Default Logitech z640 vs x540

Im thinking about upgrading my speaker system, i currently have a logitech z640, Ive been looking at the logetich x540 as a possible upgrade, as well as the logitech g51. the z5500 is just too ridiculous for me to invest in.

I heavily game, and my room is average size, combined with my xtremegamer sound card, i like to know, should i upgrade or just stick with my logitech z640?

I use the x-540 speakers. I purchased them refurbished here in the gta and am very pleased with them. I love the fact that the centre channel sits on top of my lcd. I also like the automatic speaker override that kicks in when you plug in headphones for late night gaming while gf is sleeping. I say great price for the sound they give. Sell your z-640's to offset your upgrade. You won't regret it.

My sound card does that headphone thing, ncix had it on sale for 5 minutes for 69bucks, but 5 minutes wasnt really enough time for me to figure out if the upgrade was worth it.

Im still not sure, i mean my z640s arent bad, im not even sure it will be wa worth while upgrade.

Like I said, I got mine refurbished at a great price with a warranty from factorydirect. I don't know if you have one close by or even if you live in the GTA. All depends on your situation I guess...They even came in original packaging.

I got mine for $49.99+tax. There was a little tiny scratch on one of the satellite casings. Other than that, flawless. I've been using mine for a few months now. I see they've gotten a new shipment. I got the last one at their downtown location. They're in stock in scarberia at the moment for the same price I paid.

They have the z5300 up for 99bucks, i wonder if that would be worth getting instead, they were last generations top of the line before the z5500 if im correct.

Whatever my budget allows dictates my purchases. The x-540's fit my criteria at the time. All I can say is go for the best you can afford. Keep us posted.

If your looking for 2.1 setup then go for these:
NCIX.com - Buy Edifier S330D 2.1 Speaker Set 72W RMS High Gloss Black Piano Finish Digital & Analog Input - S330D In Canada.

And if your looking for 5.1 well unfortunately the only "semi decent" thing out is the z5500s but I'm not a fan of them.
