$50 to $150 speaker recommendation?

  1. I have an antiquated yet tenacious Dell Dimension 8300 w/ integrated sound. but I am soon to get a decent laptop. Where should I begin looking toward a versatile and reasonably priced sound system suiting either machine. It should preferably include tweeters, midranges, and a woofer considering many of my audio files are in FLAC ~1,400kbps.

    To elucidate my criterion, my budget is $50-150. After devoting a moderate amount of time in personal research, it seems such a budget will suffice for decent quality 2.1 sets. Here are some appealing models:

    -- Logitech Z-2300 200 watts RMS 2.1 Speaker System

    -- Creative Labs I-Trigue 3300 2.1

    -- Creative Labs I-Trigue 3000 2.1

    -- Creative Inspire T3130 2.1

    -- Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 THX Certified

    -- Sony 2.1 Personal Speakers

    stay away from creative (unless gigaworks). they are not worth in every sense.

    depending on what kind of speakers you favor (im towards low and mids), there are also several things like Altec MX6021, harman/kardon soundsticks, and others which is worth second thought.

    the sony personal speakers you mentioned (SRS DB500) is pretty good, heard it once.

    Might be worth considering a stereo reciever and then watching places (like Frys) for big sales on floorstanding speakers. Its going to cost more than a 2.1 system, but it is more "recycleable" in that you can use them for a larger home setup later.

    Just tossing out another thought.
