Default Logitech Z-5300e vs Logitech Z-5500

ok so comparing the
Logitech Z-5300e THX Certified 5.1 Speaker System with the Logitech Z-5500 Digital THX Certified 5.1 Speaker System, does the Z-5500 have a whole lot more better sound? I mean like the Z-5300e is $160 and the 5500's are $330 do the Z-5500 sound $170 better if you know what I mean lol.

Yes there is a pretty big difference. HUge!! Power wise, the Z-5500 delivers a lot more of it. They're approximately twice as powerful as the 5300s. If budget isn't a problem, the Z-5500 is an excellent buy.

If you have a good sound card, the Z-5500 is a brilliant system.

I wouldn't even plug the Z-5500's into anything but a digital connection, seeing as my sound cards standard analogs out, don't sound half as good to my ears when using these speakers.

So how do the Z-5300e's sound? I don't plan on getting a sound card unless someone can recommend an innexpensive good card.

I don't personally know since I own the bigger brother, but except for a slightly smaller sub, and slightly less power ful sat's, nothing much probably, though that nothing much is quite a lot if your an audio enthusiast

I think if its a lot cheaper than the Z-5500's, you won't be dissapointed.

Don't listen to esa. The extra power of the Z-5500's are completely worth it. My house is on a piece of land that's about 1 acre. At full blast, you can easily clearly hear music at the edge of our property when the speakers are in the basement. I'm having a party this weekend, it's going to be awesome.

Basically, if you're into your music, get the Z-5500s, they're worth it. Especially if you like bass heavy music, the bass on these things is incredible, even too much at times.

i just got the Z-5300e they are pretty much awesome. but from what i hear the Z-5500s are awesome too. I was a little bit iffy on getting the lower ones, but it was clearly no mistake. i cant imagine much better than these. If money is no problem, then get the Z-5500s, but if you want to save get the Z-5300e's.
