New place, new desk, everything is a bit smaller. I have been using the AUX IN on an Aiwa shelf system for the last 10 years. Very pleased with sound quality but it's taking up too much room.

I'm not an audiophile. Would like to keep it under $75, maybe $100, but all suggestions appreciated.

Klipsch 2.1 promedia are about the best i have seen in there price range. $150 at Bestbuy.

The problem is, anything with a 2" speaker is always going to sound tinny and miss mid-range. The sub tries to make up for it, but can only do so much.

They do have $500+ desktop speakers that have 4"+ with or without a sub woofers that will sound tons better. A day and night difference.

Thanks for the recommendations! Those Z523s look pretty good, or maybe the 30 watt HPs. I got a bunch of other bills right now but maybe I can sell some crap first.

These are on backorder but they're worth getting if you can hold out for them to get in stock.

Alright, I got a set of Altec Lansing 221s off Craigslist for $15. They sound good, great for the money. I think I might check out the Swans when I get mo money but I'm really happy with these so far, and you can't ask for a better price, and they absolutely meet my space requirements.

Dude, the regular 30 dollar Altec Lansings are great, plus you can plug in an AUX/MIC in the right speaker.
