TBH Dave it's kind of hard to compare headphones to speakers. My personal preference is speakers over headphones, many people are biased towards headphones. I just don't like having anything bother my head while I'm playing. I like cranking up the speakers and immersing myself that way.

I think it's all personal preference tbh.Quote

What can I say Frag??? <- - if this smily had a wheelchair, I'd be a dribbling spaz..... no offense to spaz's, but jesus wept on the cross for christiandom, this setup is 1337 as f00k!!

Excellent review Frag, appreciate the time you've put into this mate, wicked pictures and simply nicely done and layed out... That is one HUGE setup!!

Everything looks in place and very shiny, and no distortion at levels your ears can bear is immense, I know you have a setup of Technics mate, and if your anything like me, you've beaten the out of your eardrums over the years, so I expect you can listen louder than your average virginal eared person...

Love the remote.... I know what speakers I'm getting next for my 5.1 for PC, I have the Creative 5100 series currently attached to my xbox, so these are next on the list

Perhaps this is some comeback on your underclocking Opty??

If I could rep you I would big time , ps - Logitech :0wned: everything else on the market!!!Quote

Damn those speakers look nice!

I prefer headphones just because I don't want my parents to be yelling at me for having loud shooting and swearing blaring by the kitchen. Also makes good for playing at bout 3 AM without them knowing .Quote
