[access-uk] Re: Logitech speakers

Hi Carol.

The Logitech did not work with my Soundblaster, that is why I had to go back into PC World on Thursday. Don't know yet, the model of these ones, but they are Creative. There is a large centre speaker about the size of a shoe box - boot box and four small speakers about the size of a jar of jam. The speakers were about £40 and the soundblaster was about the same. The only problem is that my study has a wooden floor which is varnished and I have no curtain, so the sound is a bit off. I'm sure they will sound even better if I put a piece of carpet down.

Best wishes.
Andy

Don't know

I already have speakers and sub-woofer for my computer so have to think about how to provide sound in the best way for a second sound card.

How big are these Logitec speakers and sub-woofer and are they mains and battery, or just mains operated?

Hi Carol.

Yes, you should really consider asking for one from Santa. What a difference it has made to the sound quality, and all for under £100. The best thing is that it's external so I can take it with me to my new computer.

Best wishes.
Andy

Great, Andy, for getting it to work. I don't know if I'd have succeeded but I've watched your messages back and forth with Audrey and, who knows, one day I might even have a second sound card installed myself. That would be something really good!

HI there Andy,

I am so glad it all worked out for you. You will find it very useful to have the jaws on separate speakers, I am so glad I managed to change mine over quite a while ago.

I was glad to be able to help.

Hi Audrey.

I went into PC World in Glasgow yesterday and replaced my Logitech speakers for Creative 5.1 speakers. The sub had three minijacks that fitted into the back of the Soundblaster and all is working well. Not a bad sound considering the speakers cost £45 and the External SoundBlaster cost £49. It's like a wee hi-fi in my study. Nice also to be able to access all of my music, which is on my computer, without having to bother with CD cases and trying to identify a particular album.. My next task, and I'll leave this for a few days, is accessing the Optical line-in/out facility. If I can get this to work, then I will be able to record audio described movies from my DVD Player/Recorder to my computer. God, a few years ago, we could not even play cd's on our computers, now we are able to do all this. Magic isn't it? Thanks very much for all of your help in setting up this system, and thank goodness for lists such as this, for I'd never have been able to do this on my own.

Thanks again .

Best wishes.
.

Andy

Hi Andy,

I think that if you get some creative speakers, you are likely to get a set with a subwoofer, oh smiles, light dawns! I now know that this is the way to go. CSub means centre subwoofer. So this is the socket I assume you will plug into. My speakers are very small with a switch on the one speaker that powers them. These speakers plug into the subwoofer that then plugs into the sound card, presumably in the CSub socket. This will mean that you have control over bass and trebble which is what I do.

I am sorry that you have had so much trouble with PC World. If you tell them when and where you purchased the speakers from, if they have the serial number, surely they can find out if you did purchase them?

Hope it all works out for you.

Audrey

Hi Audrey.

Did you see Tristram's message. Looks like I'll have to go back up to PC World and change the speakers. I managed eventually to get through to the Glasgow shop and they still could not assist me, other than advise that if I bring the speakers back, they will replace them, if I have a receipt. I never keep receipts! I know I should, especially when purchasing from such a rubbish shop. Now it's a whole day event travelling into Glasgow, and even if they exchange the speakers, I bed the correct ones will be double the price.

I'll really need to identify a better shop for all of this stuff in my area. PC World are terrible and they simply don't wish to know, once you have paid them.

You are right, the salesperson should not have recommended the Logitech speakers if she did not know if they were the correct ones.

Best wishes.

Andy

HI Andy,

It really does sound like they have sold you some speakers that will not work with this soundcard. I do believe I have some creative speakers with my card, but without sightede help I cannot prove this. Wouldn't you think that PC World would have known that these speakers would not work with that card? Just shows you how much these people that sell things to you really do know!

Hi all.

I have just purchased a set of Logitech speakers, which come with an additional central speaker. I have also purchased Creative Soundblaster 24 bit external soundcard.

Audrey from this list kindly assisted in setting up the soundcard in order that I could retain my existing speakers for jaws.

The sound card seems to be working for I can listen via headphones plugged into the front of it.

However, I think I was sold an incompatible system from PC World.

I've been on the phone to them for over an hour and all they can suggest is that I travel into Glasgow and take the speakers with me. It's over 2 hours for me to get in there on public transport.

I thin the system is incompatible because the plug from the speaker system that plugs into the sound card is a phono plug and not a minijack. Although the soundcard does have a phono socket called Spdif out and the phono plug fits into this, I get no sound at all coming through the speakers.



Can anyone shine some light on this problem please as I'd hate to go into Glasgow for nothing.



Best wishes.

Andy
