Hello, Hunter.

Yes, they are the Swan M10's. I like them a lot, but have actually been thinking about getting rid of them for a regular 2.0 system, rather than having the woofer (or whatever you call it).

Certain tones from music tend to hurt my ears and it seems as though whatever sounds the woofer puts out is what does it.

Other than my personal issues with them, they are good speakers. I had some Bose Companion 3 Series II speakers previous to using these and those were way better, but they were also about $200 more.

Hey guys I'm re-posting my setup because I do not know how to quote the thumbnail on the previous posting. But I am looking for a speaker recommendation. I currently have a logitech 2.0 system and I just know how I can set it up without my desk being cluttered. Possibly a single speaker on the right side of the desk? Any suggestions from you experts would be great, thanks

I don't think that adding two speakers to your desk will make it the least bit cluttered.

I like to put my speakers at opposite ends of the desk, angled toward the spot where I generally sit. I have no idea if that's optimal positioning, but it tends to sound better to me.

W yeah I have some Audioengine AP4Ns in bamboo that I used to have on my old desk but with my new apartment I moved them out with the record player so looking for something for the times I am at my desk. I just ordered a set and going to demo them out. My dad has a set of the Bowers and Wilkins MM-1 speakers but doubt he will give those up...

You ordered a set of the Swans? I thought they are pretty hard to find new, without having to wait months.

I really like the look of the B&W MM-1's, but $500 is a lot more than I'd want to spend on computer speakers. If they were around $300, I'd probably buy a pair.

Found a pair online that were still in box, they should be here soon.

And yeah I saw a pair on Amazon refurbed for $300 a few weeks ago but they got snapped up within a day or two I think haha.

On B&W site you can get the mm-1's for 399 recertified with a 2 year warranty. I got mine at the apple store but the prices for refurbs aren't bad given the full warranty.

There appears to be quite a few sellers on Amazon with stock, including a few reputable ones (beach audio, computerbrain), under $100. http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B00CPEKLHG

Obviously, ignore the picture on the main listing--something is wrong there.

I'm horrible at taking photos, but you get the idea! My beloved 2010 17" MBP finally died the other week and it was more expensive to repair than it was worth.. but it all worked out, and at least I can still use the 27" ACD!

So… I sold the retina Macbook Pro & Thunderbolt Display combo and bought a 27" iMac with a 3TB Fusion drive, 32GB of RAM and 2GB graphic card. It's a freaking beast!

Ahh, I haven't looked for them in quite a while, because I purchased them probably about a year ago. It figures that once I get them, they are easier to find, though, haha

$100 off isn't too bad, but still not enough to sway me

I feel like $300 would be pushing it, but i'd cave. Are they really worth it though?
