    Right now I'm looking at the Logitech G51. Is there anything better than that around its price range?

    Thanks!

    Picked up the G51 last December for 99 Euros in a local store and so far no problems. Just had to turn down the bass, otherwise i would be in daily trouble with my neighbours. ;)

    Only downside i've noticed so far is that the speaker cables (RCA/cinch) are very short. So you might need to pick up some additional extention cables, depending on the individual setup/distance to the subwoofwer.

    Since in some stores the G51 here is sold for 130 Euros+ another alternative, and a way better one would be the Teufel Concept E Magnum Power Edition 5.1. It goes for around 150 Euros+.

    Ya G51 are pretty nice speakers. They are extremely similar to my Logitech 5300's which are THX certified. The G51's aren't THX certified, not a huge issue.

    Is THX certification a big deal?
