I want to buy speakers for gaming, music and movies.

I'm thinking between Sound BlasterX Kratos S5 and Edifier R1280DB. I also considered the klipsch ProMedia 2.1.

All 3 are around same price point just need that nudge on which to get.

Thanks!

Hi v4npro,

Out of those 3, my first pick would be the Edifier R1280DB. Then the Klipsch ProMedia 2.1. Also check these out they sound good too. http://www.corsair.com/en-eu/gaming-...speaker-system

Thanks Sabbath for the reply. The corsair system is out of my price range. Was looking for something $100-160max.

I went ahead and got the Edifiers. 24 month warranty over 12 months.


Thanks again for the nudge.

I suggest then a pair of these https://www.amazon.com/dp/B016P9HJIA?psc=1
Glowing reviews on amazon . In fact I just ordered a set should be in today

I just got mine in not bad but IMO does not live up to the hype on amazon . Oh don't get me wrong , there not bad at all , but the promedia blew this things away !
