Summary: I've owned the Klipsch Promedia 2.1 THX speakers for about 5 years. They absolutely rocked everything, however recently, the power supply went bad because (i wont lie) i drive the crap out of these systems. High volumes are a MUST for me and the 2.1 system is an extremely good deal for any 2.1 system. I switched to a 5.1 system because i wanted the surround sound in movies, but i didn't want to lose quality when i listend to music. I got a hell of a deal.
Great bang for the buck! Not enough words to describe these

Summary: I just bought these and have them hooked up to my Sound Blaster Audigy Sound card. I set it up to go to 5.1 channel, Digital Output only. Audio played from the speakers, but when I ran the Test, the one that goes "Front Left"... "Center"... "Front Right" ... "Rear Left" ... "Rear Right" ... I only heard it say "Front Left" and "Front Right", meaning that it didn't output correctly. I thought maybe the speakers were defective or my sound card wasn't setup right.
Summary: These speakers sound absolutely fantastic! The highs are crisp, and the bass is solid. I use these for my Xbox, and they greatly enhance the gaming experience. These double for home theater speakers when I play DVDs through the Xbox. You can also use these on a PC. These aren't for everyone. They seem to be designed mainly for video game consoles, and hence don't have analog 5.1 inputs.
Summary: Hey All, These speakers are truley amazing, I've never heard imaging this precise even on my 5,000 home theater system. Many people are saying that this system can only connect to a soundcard in a 2.1 configuration. I have found that not to be the case. You can select 5 channel mode, Dolby PLII Music and PLII movie modes for games and this system plays out of all 5 speakers. I dare anyone to find a system that looks and sounds this good for gaming, movies and music.
