    I had to get some new speakers as my 10 yr old promedia 2.1s finally gave up the ghost . I got some edifer r1280Ts but just not the same . Seeing my sound card has a toslink conector I thought well maybe its time to make use of it . I saw these

    But I never used this type of setup so looking for feedback , thoughts .
    1) it is worth the extra price ?
    2) what if any difference in sound would I notice ?

    Or would you just go with the non digital version of these speakers ?

    I do a lot of games and music and really enjoy a good sound experience
    Thanks in advance:)

    I would suggest spending more money, and picking up the Edifier R2000DB pair instead. The sound quality is much better than what the R1280T offers. You can get them in cherry or black.

    thanks , but WAY too big , I already have the smaller version and I just do not like where the on off switch is . If I get any bigger I have to get another desk just to have a place to put them !:)
