Thanks for responding.
It's going on my desk, so yes, it will be VERY close & I'm not a gammer, so I don't see that being a problem, but I do like clean resolution.
So the TV is out then <sigh>.
I returned the speakers already back in Dec., & since I didn't buy them online, I don't remember the model number, but I think these are it... http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Speaker-System-Z323-Subwoofer/dp/B002FU5QM0/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1461764946&sr=8-10&keywords=logitech+speakers
The issue is that all of the apartments here are made with stone. That's the walls, floors, ceiling, etc. There's no insulation either.
While I have a desk & chair & some plastic containers in my office (the 2nd bedroom), that didn't help with the sound bouncing off the walls. I even bought a tiny shaggy rug & that didn't help (some people told me to.)
The sound was tinny even when I lowered the sub woofer, so that doesn't solve the problem.
So now I don't know what to do, b/c I need to be able to hear
She said that I should buy speakers that are cheap & have no sub woofer.
I won't be using them for watching TV (I do that on my other computer & have had to put up with using a headset where everything sounds great), but it would be nice to solve this bloody problem once & for all so maybe I can buy speakers to watch TV WITHOUT having to use a headset.
