whatever you decide to get spend time tweaking it and working them in with all kinds of styles of music and sounds. im big believer in breaking in speakers, but some people think its a myth. my 251's which are my first 5.1 set, cost $100 about 2 years ago. i was dissappointed at first, but after playing with them for several weeks i got them sounding great. as for which to get, the klipsch overall sound better, but id take the logitechs cause of the more powerful bass and then tweak the satellites til they sound good to your ears.
