So, this is unrelated to the home.autechnet server, in fact it has nothing to do with. This has to do with my workstation that’s situated right next to my server.
Over the weekend my speakers decided to hang up the reigns and instead fuzz whenever they were switched on. I tried all the obvious solutions moving the input signals away from any power cords though the fuzz still prevailed.
I tossed and turned and researched a few of the various speakers around including; 5.1 channel systems and 2.1.
There were two main 5.1 channel system that’s jumped out at me; Logitech Z506 5.1 Channel PC Speakers and the Soniq CSA51 5.1 Multimedia Speaker System. I read a few reviews on these systems, they didn’t seem all that bad, but I was a bit hesitant because of their wattage.
I did a quick equation to work out approximately how many watt each speaker would be:
Total system wattage approx 70 watts divide by 5 speakers and one sub (6).
So your looking at 11.6 watt per a speaker or if you consider the sub as having more power the equation may look more like:
70watt – 15 watt sub = 55 watt.
So your speakers would probably be around 6 watts each.
After considering those numbers I thought I would give the cheap 5.1 systems a miss. I opted for the Logitech Z623 2.1 channel system that housed a total of 200watts! The two speakers are both 30 watt while the sub is a massive 135 watt.
When I purchased the speakers from JB Hi-Fi I knew right away I had made the right decision the weight of the box was the dead giveway. They weighed more than my previous Creative 5.1 channel surround system. The sub was substantially larger than my last, so much so it now sits under my desk and not on my desk.
All in all I’m very pleased with the sound quality and power of the system; well done to Logitech and the team for producing a quality product.
