What do you use these for? By "remote" you mean the speakers need to be wireless? How large is the area to be covered by the sound?

$200 is a very low budget for this.

These guys will do what you want EXCEPT for the remote, and they respect your budget.

That's the problem, the "remote" requirement, if he means wireless it adds almost $100 of cost (Airport express or Apple TV) So that leaves only $100 for a pair of speakers and an amp. I think $350 would be a minimum realistic budget for the whole system.

I interpreted what he asked for as a remote control.

If you want a remote just to control the volume, get this for $19, and spend the rest on decent speakers.
