How often do you upgrade your desktop speakers?

Just when they brake.

I had one of those cheapo Logitech sets with the subwoofer and 2 desktop speakers for years. The subwoofer finally broke about a year ago and when I got a new pc this year I added another set of cheapo $10 Logitech speakers. They fine for youtube and general computing use. When I game I mainly use a headset.

i bought my z680s in 2004 and they are still awesome

I could probably sell them for 90% of what I paid

When they stop working. I use headphones primarily.

And if you hear as the warm night falls. The silver sound from a time so strange. Sing to me, sing to me.

I've had these speakers for longer than I've had my own desktop.

I don't think I've ever upgraded, unless you count moving from my monitor's speakers to a 2.1 set after I decided what I wanted.

I went from Logitech 5.1 to KRK Rokit 8's with 10" Sub....the difference is unbelievable. Of course the KRK set up cost me $900 and the Logitech only set me back $125. The quality of the audio pumping out of the KRK's is just so damn clean. You hear new sounds from songs you've heard a million times, and it sounds so much better that you want to listen to your entire song library again. Playing a game like Battlefield is just dreamy.

If you upgrade now, I'd spend a little more, and make sure you got a decent sound card to go with it.


I'm not worthy.

The KRK's are beast. I have a pair of Rokit 5's myself.

I had a pair of logitech 2.1 speakers (decent ones) for about 8 years or so, I forgot the model. My brother ruined them a while back so I have gone speakerless until recently. I semi-recently got a pair of Emotiva speakers and I expect them to last 15 + years.

Uh...I bought this pair of Paradigm Titans back in 1994, and they still sound awesome. The receiver in my bedroom is a lot newer though, it's from 2007.

I've been rocking the original Klipsch 400's for over 14 years now.
