Logitech Z-560 or Altec Lansing 641 PC Speakers?

I'm trying to decide which one to get, need opinions. I'm going to be using them with a soundblaster audigy card. Thanks!

With 2 quality systems it gets subjective at this point. Best thing to do is go to Best Buy or some other store and listen to both of them. Choose which ones you like best.

The Z-560s sound just as good as any other system and they are much cheaper. Both are THX certified, so sound quality should be very similar.

I just went and listened to these speakers at best buy and I must admit to being impressed with the Altec Lansing speakers. Now I guess i see the my future and it is 641

I was less than impressed with the z-560 speakers. The overall sound and range of the 641 seemed to far exceed the z-560's.

Of course best buy charges too much at $199 each

decided to buy the 641's thru amazon for $124.77 shipped. seemed like a good deal using the $10 off $75 coupon and the free shipping plus no sales tax

I have the altec lansings also, very nice sound and plays extremely loud without distorting. Bass is nice for a computer system, nothing special compared to even low grade HT stuff though. I can't complain, I just got a set of yamaha A200's too. Those plus my 15in audiosource sub really shake the house.

If you want really deep bass try this...

I am very pleased with mine.

Best deal I can find right now is through the gateway store for $153 w/ free shipping. The 641s don't qualify for free shipping at amazon anymore.

The thing is on the gateway store they say the wattage and subwoofer size isn't specified

Altec

so I'm assuming they are the same speakers.

Now my other question is. I currently have the ACS48s and is it worth the $150 to upgrade to these baby's??
