Incredible Power For Unsurpassed Gaming In 7.1 Surround

More powerful center satellite - to match the cinematic audio requirements of the latest games and movies

Powerful wooden subwoofer - with a huge 6.5 long-throw driver and a flared port, for louder, deeper and cleaner bass

Auxiliary input - for listening to MP3 and music players while gaming

The Inspire P7800 has a staggering 90 watts of power, for unsurpassed gaming in 7.1 surround, and was designed with a more powerful center satellite to match the cinematic audio requirements of the latest games and movies.

It also has a wired remote that can be conveniently placed anywhere on the desktop, unlike other systems that cut costs by integrating the controls into one of the speakers. It includes a bass level control for personalized adjustment (far more user-friendly than making you crawl on the floor reaching for a knob on the back of the subwoofer to turn up the bass!) and a headphone jack for private listening.

The Inspire P7800 also comes with a convenient auxiliary input for listening to an MP3 or music player while gaming. And with CMSS™ upmix, you can get 7.1 audio from 5.1 or 6.1 sound cards.

3-0 out of 5 stars Appearance doesn't mean Performance, Quantity doesn't mean..
*Pros:

1. Excellent High Frequencies in the front speakers with tweeters.

2. Balanced, accurate and deep Bass reproduction.

3. CMSS up-mix feature for 5.1 & 6.1 sound card.

4. The best performance of this system is in GAMING.

*Cons:

1. Weak mid-range at high volume, especially in Voices.

2. The strength of side and rear speakers is not the same of three front speakers.

3. To achieve the best performance of this system, at least 5.1 sound card is required.

4. Its Quality doesn't match its price

4-0 out of 5 stars The best 7.1 system under $100
This is probably the best 7.1 system for less than $100.That being said, it's not everyone's perfect match.

If music is your main application, you might be happier with two top-notch speakers than seven decent ones.Your music only comes in two channels, demoting those five extra speakers to mere clones of the first two.

For music aficianados, I recommend Logitech's excellent Z-2300 THX certified 2.1 system (B0002SQ2P2).For about the same $$, you get much better mid-range reproduction, and surrender five unnecessary channels.

If your application is gaming, look no further.In this price range, this is the system for you.Turn down the lights, turn up the speakers, and you are _immersed_.The steady drip-drip-drip of cave water in Neverwinter Nights is far more convincing when it seems to emerge from all around me.

If your application is watching DVDs, you could honestly go either way.Ask yourself which is more important: faithful sound reproduction or immersive experience?For sound quality, take the Logitechs (B0002SQ2P2).For surround sound, take the Creatives.Either way, you'll be happy.


Creative Inspire T7800 7.1 speakers:

Pros:

Lightweight satellites.
5.1 --> 7.1 upmix (for compatability with 5.1 sound cards).
Handy remote control with power, volume, bass adjust, headphone connector, and alternate input.
Slots for hanging the satellites on the walls.


Cons:

Mid-range sound reproduction is watery (though still better than average for a system of this price).
The power switch/volume knob on the remote feels cheap.
Only the 3 front satellites contain both mid-range drivers and high-range tweeters (the side and rear satellites contain only mid-range drivers).
The cable ends are not terminated (bare wires).
The cables are too short to trace around the floorboards to the opposite corner of even a small room.

Despite all of the cons, overall I am very pleased with the Creatives, and I would purchase them again.

5-0 out of 5 stars t7700 vs. p7800
Creative Labs has 2 excellent models. I like this one better(the T7700) because of the attached stands. But the P7800 has a better center channel (20 watts vs. 18watts). So pick your poison... ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

This Creative Labs eight-piece PC speaker system delivers 7.1-channel audio to a computer system with a sound card or surround sound support, continuing the evolution of PCs into full-featured home entertainment centers. The T7700 enhances everything from 3D games to DVD movies to music from the comfort of a computer desktop. The system's 125 watts of total system power and superior positional audio from the seven acoustically tuned satellite speakers offer the listener an excellent acoustic performance.

The system comes with a separate audio control pad, which features a power button, volume and bass controls, a stereo line-in, a headphone jack, and a unique M-Port feature that lets users stream music directly into compatible MP3 players. In addition, the system is equipped with Creative Multi-Speaker System (CMSS) technology, which dramatically enhances the playback of stereo files and 5.1 and 6.1 audio soundtracks across the entire 7.1 speaker configuration.

The two front satellite speakers and single center speaker feature a tweeter and a midrange driver for consistent high-frequency response, while the two side and two rear satellite speakers feature a single midrange driver. A wooden subwoofer with a 6.5-inch long-throw driver complements the satellite speakers to deliver a rich, full bass. To aid in placement, the speakers store on convenient speaker stands, though the stands remove easily for mounting on a wall. The T7700 is protected by a one-year warranty on parts and labor.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent valued speakers ...
I just started using these and I will admit they aren't the higest power rated speakers but for a directional 7.1 gaming rig and personal surround system the price is impossible to beat...I bought this with an Audigy 2 Gamer and the best game out there (FarCry) and the price is excellent...The bundle of games with the Audigy 2 Gamer is also a great deal for those that don't have them(...)P>Use the gift certificate for Unreal 2004, Doom 3 or Half Life 2...

Keep in mind to get maximum value out of this you need to add a solid video card to your rig.Picked up a Geforce 6800GT OC and am sitting pretty...

Happy gaming...

4-0 out of 5 stars Midrange for games and treble + base for music
The subwoofer is virtually identical to the 6600 set(6.1) with 2 extra RMS for the 7th speaker layout.The midrange is much like the 6.1's but the front end has tweeters as well as center tweeter/mid for V/O talant in games(which is sadly drown out in most games by sound progammers fault, not the speakers).The games that really thrive are the FPS as everyone says, but some sims also take good advantage even IND War II spreads it out quite well and seems to be universally compatible with all systems-9.1 anyone? Most kinds of games(RPG, Adventure, tactical) do not get fully apprieciated becasue of the subtle sounds that do not get heard well unless you turn up the volumn.insects, birds, distant waterfalls, peasant chatter, and other ambience is better heard on the Gigaworks set or Logitech's 5.1. Which cost two arms and three legs to purchase.
On the music side, Classic Rock music(like Rush, Yes, Kansas, Head East, Heart, Spooky Toothe ect.) sound excellent because you don't want too much bass in that stuff. Most other music(classical and easy) nead more midrange and less hissy treble to truely appreciate.If you listen to Beat music or other bass required tunes you need a better set than this.Creative's acompanying sound card does quite well at dividing instruments descretely in all 7 channels however on this set.
If you don't have the money for the fancy set, go for it, but if you play games and want to appreciate the sound quality save up for the big one. Otherwise you are probably better off with a 2.1 with tweeters, midrange and a thumpy bass.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for the price
There isn't a better system for PC gaming (for the price) than these Inspire T7700's. To begin with, 7.1 DOES make a difference with games - the transitions are much smoother. The two-way satellites add to the high end, and the sub puts out a lot of bass. The wired controller lets you adjust everything, and even has a line in (for plugging in my MP3 jukebox). I also like the way they look with the grill off :)

4-0 out of 5 stars good for the price
I recently upgraded from FPS1800, expecting a lot from two way speakers and 7 point. Those speakers do produce high frequency sound, but the mid range somehow got weaker, so it lacks in warmth which FPS1800 had. The bass is pretty good, though it's not as puchy as home audio sytem. Overall, the sound is very powerful (who needs more than 100watts for computer speakers?), and 7 point sourcing in gmaes works very good especially considering its price. For movie, I don't see any difference even when I turn on 7 speakers setting for powerdvd.
Little tweak: if you want to get a good music experience, change the front two speakers to bookshelf speakers. ... Read more
