    Hi,

    I listen to a lot of music (MP3) whilst on my pc and was thinking of hooking a pair of Keff eggs to an old amp i have connected to my pc.
    Any thoughts,what do you have in the way of an audio set-up.

    (not looking for a 5.1,just a good looking audio set-up)

    Don't see any probs with this though you'd want the sub in there as well. The eggs are only the satellite part of a sub/sat system.

    I just have a cheap Creative sub/sat system hooked up at the mo.

    If you already own the Kefs then why not but if you're thinking of buying them just as decent stereo speakers for a PC, you could probably buy better audio specific, rather than home cinema, speakers for the same amount of money. You should get a better response asking this in the speaker forum.

    Don't worry about it, the kef eggs will look great next to your lcd, you don't need a sub because the kef eggs produce there own bass and there are excellent speakers for music as well as movies. I've had the mk1 versions for a few years (full sub/sat system) and use the fronts left and right when listening to music.

    No for music i've configured the cd setting on my amp to use just the 2 channel stereo, which doesn't use the sub.

    I agree with Dokken. They do produce some bass* (also not that low) and the overall sound quality smashes most pc speakers to pieces, so this would be fine. You may want to keep your eye out for a cheap second hand sub ... that really would improve things, if you felt this was necessary.

    I actually find they produce enough bass to watch most 'normal' programmes (eg such the news, kids tv/cartoons, etc) so I switch off the Kef subwoofer (in my 5.1 set-up). I only switch on the sub for films, drama (CSI, Dazeil & Pascoe), etc.
