I still have these logitech what started out as a 5.1 surround sound set now its just the two speakers and the sub.. but i bought these probably in 99 or 2000.. im wondering if a newer set of speakers will sound better? Im so used to these speakers ive had them for about 4 computer builds now i dont know if im actually missing out on sound quality!

Thoughts?

Not often, and I don't like spending much.

Set 1. Labtec Spin 50 2.0, 2003 - 2011, one of them stopped working completely (or I wouldn't have replaced them).

Set 2. Logitech LS11 2.0, 2011 - 2013, weren't very good, buzzy when over half volume. Got sick of them.

Set 3. Wharfedale S20030 2.0, 2013 - ?, extremely cheap, but quite good. Hope they last for many years.

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.

Not very often but I have a pretty decent set-up that doesn't warrant upgrading.

I use monitors for my home studio, so I don't really have "speakers" per say. I am looking to upgrade to these from my crappy Behringers at some point though:

At $400-$1500 a pair for decent monitors I try to hang out to them as long as possible.

Those look really nice. I would like some speakers like that that look nice like that but cheaper. Any recommendations?

I upgraded last year.
Before that, the last time I upgraded was 1998.

So you can say I upgraded twice in about twenty years.
