Creative Insire T5400


My new build with Asus mo/bo came with eight channel onboard chip, but these speakers and added sound card stole the show. I was amazed at the difference good speakers and a added sound card would make.. Buy them!!!!!

Most bang for the buck for any 5.1 system in this price range. Match these bad boys up with a Creative Audigy sound card and you will smile all the time

None so far

Tried and proven to be:


I got this system to use with both a computer and HD LCD TV. This system will only power front speakers with the Aux. input, however the sound quility is very good along with great bass. The LCD TV without this add on is dead in the water. The 5400 is...

Excelent value and high quility

Lack of Digital input for aux

I'm not so sure anymore


I've done pro audio for local concerts for just about any type of music someone could like.AZ I work with expensive equipment, and I can say that these are very nice for the price. Again, I'm really bummed that I have to go through the whole RMA...

Very inexpensive for 5.1 ; Nice metal stands, gave them a higher-quality feel ; 2-way speaker design adds solid highs to the mix ; 16' of rear speaker cable covers you adequately

The sub is already dying on me. I'm really upset that I'll have to RMA these; I spent most of the day saturday mounting the satellites, heh. The sub fades in and out, and muddies up the mix. Theres a green LED in the wired remote, and it keeps dimming...

T5400,,Just Awsome.


I think the rear speakers are wired the way they are with accidents in mind, if the wires get pulled out somehow it will not destroy the whole speaker. Just re-strip the end of the wires and plug them back in! DVD Movie Audio: I use PowerDVD 4, at...

5.1 sound ; Music Fans: The front three main speakers got TWEETERS ; So you get all three, tweeters ; mid-range drivers, and one heck-of-ah sub-woofer for that deep ; bass that rattles the walls ; Gamers: 5.1 sound,this set was built for EAX games,just...

Cons? nothing serious. The rear speakers are wired ; up diffently than the front speakers, must plug the bare end of the wires into them, no big deal realy, not ; enuff to deduct one egg for it

Excellent Gaming Speakers


A definite must have for MP3 and FPS enthusiasts.

Adds a dimension to FPSs that allows you to track enemies by sound alone. They also sound incredible with SACD or other hi-fi sources. Cables are more than adequate in length, installation is a breeze

There are no cons. Want more bass, more wattage, 7.1 capability, or something that flies? Buy something with those features. This product does what it is supposed to do - with excellence

Amazing Speakers


I have these speakers paried with a Creative Labs Audigy 2 ZS, and it is amazing! Best sound system I have ever owned and won't need to update my system anytime soon. If you play BF2, this is an amazing setup, you can hear artillery comming!

These speakers are amazing, look no further when it comes to 5.1 sound! Had these for almost 5 months and the sound is incredible, my friend came over who plays BF2 with headphones and is now buying the same setup

its not 7.1

Great Surround Sound


Speakers are great!! Got the last night and plugged them into my Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeMusic sound card. Loaded up F.E.A.R. and turned on the surround and was amazed at how much better the gameplay was with surroud. I could hear everything, surround...

Some RCA connector pins for the center, left and right were bent to where I couldn't plug them in. But with some pliers it was no trouble to bend them back to a round shape. Was able to plug them in after that. Other than that no problems so far

Long Time Owner..:-)


The next step up would have to be the Creative Labs G500 Gigaworks speakers. Im sure they sound wonderful but trust me, give these a try first. You'll be glad you did!

I have owned these speakers for just over 3 years now. They have been pushed to the limits time and time again and they still sound great! New models have come out since with more power and 7.1 but if you have a small to medium computer area like me...

The only con would be the volume controler is limited to bass and volume only. But match it up with a Creative labs sound card and you'll get great software and great sound..:-)

Creative Engineering


Ordered these December 22, 2004. Sounded great for almost a year. Died November 20, 2005. Typical Creative engineering, I'm sure they intended for it to die on December 23rd but they made a small error in there somewhere. Warranty is 1 year, debating...

Good sound for the money

One year lifespan. Well, almost one year
