Hi, I am looking for new set of speakers. I can't now decide for what should I go, if 2.1 or 5.1 or 7.1.
Until now (for many years) I have used only headphones so I really don't know much about speakers. Right now I am using Razer tiamat (http://www.razerzone...azer-tiamat-71) with its 7.1 audio. I want the speakers for the same things like my headphones and that is: gaming, movies and music (EDM).
From what I've read people say that 2.1 is for music better since most of music is made for 2.1, and for movies and some games is better 5.1. And 7.1 is just too much and not worth the money.
I don't know how it's with speakers, but my 7.1 headphones are better than many 2.1 that I have listened to. For gaming, movies and music as well.
After all the discusions I have read I would now probably go with 5.1 speakers. But now I don't know if I should buy some preset or 1 by 1 (Subwoofer from some label, center from another, ...) and if it should be home theatre or just pc speakers. And I also don't know for what too look exactly (what features). But even tho I am not any pro and I don't know well speakers I still am a bit audiophile.
BTW my budget is about 550$ and I can't build speakers by my self.
Thanks for all the comments. Every help is welcomed.
