View Full Version : Speakers for my HDTV for <$200?

Feb 14, 2011, 04:18 PM
Now that I'm clear on which HDTV I'm going to get for use with my Apple TV, I need some help picking speakers. I'm on a tight budget, so fancy home audio systems are out. I'm thinking that I could get some speakers to plug in to the audio-out port of my HDTV. Would that be a good option? Anything of decent quality available for <$200?

I have some JBL Duets I use with my laptop. They're not so hot, but I suspect they're better than the built-in output of my HDTV. They connect to my computer via the headphones port, so I'm not sure how (or if) that would work with my HDTV or the Apple TV.

I love my Klipsch Pro-media 2.1, it's an amazing set. Still amazes me everyday...

Me too... I use the Klipsch Pro Media 2.1 with a Samsung LED HDTV. Great 2.1 sound - but I cannot use any remote to adjust volume. I have to get up - old school - and walk to the speakers to adjust volume. Exercise is good!!!

I got a $400 Sony 5.1 system from the Sonystyle refurbished site for $189 + shipping when they were running a sale. The system sounds very good to my ears, I'm not an audiophile by any means, but I still appreciate a good set of speakers and this system sounds great.
