New Speakers

Logitech® X-230 SpeakersI was lucky enough to receive a new set of speakers for my PC this Christmas which I have only just got around to connecting to my PC. The new speakers are Logitech® X-230 Speakers, which replace my ageing Altec Lansing ACS 33 Speakers.

The Logitech speakers are fantastic, they have a clarity that the old Altec Lansing speakers couldn't come close to. They are also a little more powerful which is useful. The signal to noise ratio of the new speakers are quoted at 96dB vs. the 65dB of the old ones and I believe that the SN ratio is accurate, the difference in sound quality is like chalk and cheese. The THD isn't quoted but I think that it is quite low, much lower than the ACS 33s.

I don't know why I didn't think of upgrading ages ago. I'm still finding it hard to believe that speakers of this quality are available for so little money. They sound almost as good as my much, much, much more expensive Sony seperates.

I've been listening to all sorts of music this morning and every single track sounds more detailed and crisp. The only downside is that the mp3s that I created in the early days at 128kbps when hard disk space was limited all sound hideous now. I'm going to have to rip them all again at 320kbps or I wont be able to listen to them.
