I know for begining i be ok to use the speaker system but for future i will be wana byt Monitor speakers
actualy i was have talk with 1 guy and he tell me there is no reason to buy monitor speakers becouse the quality of the sound from my guitar will be same on 5,1 system compare to Monitor speakers

it's true?????? i not belive that biggrin.gif for sure my self teling me there is 1 thing the Monitor speakers will be build in better quality so minimum i be can turn the volume up and don't be scare to damage the Monitors

but what's abouth the Quality of the sound

Just for playing guitar the 5.1 system should work fine, but when it comes to recording/mixing I would always prefer good monitor boxes

I agree with Skalde..
The sound from your guitar will probably be just as good on the 5,1 as on the monitors.
Personally i have no need for a 5.1 system. I find it so much easier to record and mix with 2 good monitors.

I'm sure guitar will sound great on the 5.1 system. Mine does on a 2.1 so it can only get better on 5.1

But if you wanted to mix monitors would be better, because they don't color the sound, each instrument sounds much more clear and natural on monitors, thus making recording & mixing sepparate tracks much easier. Plus you get a final mix that will sound good anyweher you play it, as opposed to a mix done using a subwoofer, that might sound awesome in your speakers but not so good in another guys equipment.

You can use your system for guitar playing and it will sound good. These monitors main purpose is to give you a flat response which is great for mixing and producing audio. The sound on them will be flat and precise, but not very "exciting". I believe that these monitors are way better than the Logitech system, so it is up to you in the end man. You can try using your system and if you are not satisfied just buy M-Audio ones.
