    Because it uses 2.5X as many satellites as a 2.1 system?

    There's a range, as in most things.

    Logitech Z506 Surround Sound Speakers: Amazon.co.uk: Computers Accessories

    The Logitech Z506 system is s relatively cheap 5.1 system. Much cheaper in the USA than in the UK, apparently ($59, shipped).

    I'm mystified as to why there are vendor at Amazon (UK or US) that list the same product at several times the price of the lowest entries. Does anyone ever buy from them?

    Bobkn, they think we are stupid! Well, socialists are! I'm not, maybe it might be cheaper for me to import USA? I checked your link, its $ for £ almost.

    Rip off, will need to check USA sites methinks.

    I'm not sure that socialists are stupid with their own money. (They have some, else they'd be communists.)

    I'm not optimistic about importing stuff. For example: I was recently wondering if I could import some Wharfedale DS-1 powered speakers into the US. (They don't distribute that model here.) I found a German outfit on eBay that would do it, but the total cost would have been prohibitive. A lot to pay for a gray market version (no warranty).

    It was a touch of sarcasm, anyway .......................... the thing with 'imported' stock is that it all usually comes from the same source anyway - China! But something seems to have gone pear shaped in China, economy is wobbly for one thing. I think some of these mega profit, poor quality company's will have to spend a lot of their profits on moving, again.
