Good desktop speakers?

#1TiamatKillerPosted 10/21/2013 7:01:31 PM
I was wondering what you guys use for desktop speakers. I don't have a dedicated sound card and probably won't get one, but I have a decent built in audio card on my motherboard.

The speakers would mostly be used for playing music and/or video so that others could hear it (monitor doesn't have built-in speakers). I'm not really looking for some amazing setup that costs $300, but I think a $100 ceiling would be okay.

Suggestions?

Yeah, Promedia 2.1 if you want 2.1 setup. If you want 2.0, you can get Bose Companion 2 which already gotten that cheap, or if you don't mind the size, Thonet & Vander Kurbis though I haven't seen it in any US store.

Any Logitech 5.1 speakers will do the job perfectly, around the 70-120 rms range would be perfect. And they should be under $80 too, so great value for money

I bought mine a few years ago and they are still banging today. Very reliable and immense sound for a bedroom
