    Hi folks,

    Does anyone have experience of using Wireless PC speakers, or know where to get them. Want to connect at least two to my laptop (which doesn't have bluetooth). Any advice welcome - but I really want hi-performance with nor wires (power or otherwise). :lease:

    Thx

    Thanks - they have a nice 5.1 system (Z-5500) but how would I connect to a laptop (IBM Thinkpad T42). The sound card is built in I guess, so I'm not sure where I'd connect ? Help appreciated

    Z-5500 is not wireless, but is a great sounding system, how old is your laptop, beacuse if you want the best sound from it then you best purchase one of these cards with it..

    Audigy 2 ZS notebook

    It will let you get thew full 5.1 sound from your notebook...so if oyu really want to get 5.1 speakers best getting a proper sound board to run it...

    Let me know how it sounds...one word of advice, the subwoofer is know to make an annoying humming noise when it is on standby, you can hear it if the room is really quiet, it's a common problem to due poor shielding...it's all over the logitechs foums, but it does not effect the performance, just annoyign when your trying to sleep, but yours may not have the problem, Logitech was kind enough to ship me a replacement spaker set, still wating for it, just hope it does nto have the same problem
