yeah, If I was going to spend that much i would just go with a real home theater system. Anyway, my Klipsch promedia 2.1 speakers are AWESOME for $150.

Which makes them that different from speakers how? speakers are speakers, they can be crisp sounding or amazing quality but they STILL remain $600 speakers!

It makes them different from computer speakers as these require an amplifier while computer speakers do not.

I used to own Mirages previous generation of mini surround speakers, they were worth every bit of the $500 I paid for them at the time.
