Please help me find a speaker set

Who is willing to help me find a speaker set? I'm sporting an ancient Logitech X540 set (lol) that could do with replacing.

I'm using it to listen to music and play games on the PC. Needs to be 5.1 and wireless.

I've looked around a bit but I'm not knowledgeable enough, admittedly.

The few times I have messed around with wireless PC speakers, gaming was not great due to latency. They are convenient, but also seem very susceptible to interference. Things may have changed significantly as this was a year or two ago.

Hey lads! Thanks for your input and suggestions!

Correct, my current set isn't wireless (and that annoys me). Good point regarding potential latency; that's unwanted so wired again it is.

Klipsch looks amazing! Budget: not set amount but I have a 'moral budget', is that makes sense? The suggested Logitech Z906 looks pretty good to me actually.

The Z906 is an awesome 5.1 setup a mate of mine got one a few years ago. It's very very good. Meanwhile i'll stick with my Acoustic Solutions 5.1 set which I bought for £20 from "Crack" oops sorry Cash Converters
