Quintet ?


Recommended Posts

I own a Cambridge Soundworks Speaker System for my computer. It uses SPDIF from soundcard to the sub/amp and has speaker wire connects for the satellites. I am wanting a better quality satellite and so I'm looking at a pair of Quintets. The amp supplies 8 watts per channel (RMS). Do you guys think I could run a Quintet fairly well in 8 watts being as Klipsch is so efficient?

Thanks for your reply in advance.

Why not just use a line-out miniplug from the soundcard split into RCA plugs and go into a receiver. Then you can hook up any kind of speakers you want. I have my computer hooked up to my home system: A denon 5700, belle klipsch fronts, Heresy rears, with an LF-10 sub. It rocks, and I've converted almost all my cds into MP3s and now have a jukebox right at my fingertips. It makes gameplay more realistic, too.

I already have a digital SPDIF going to my Denon AVR-2800, but I'm going to have to be traveling to a different location every month on rotations and I'm not going to carry my Klipsch Synergy Towers with me everywhere I go and I don't really want to carry a $600 receiver everywhere either!
