Need Better Speakers For iBook...

Looking for a nice set of SMALL speakers to attach to my iBook. Would prefer non battery operated. Would more prefer USB speakers if such a thing exists. Want to keep it @ 60 - 70 bucks or less if possible. Any ideas?

Thanks...Chuck...Day 5 of owning my 1st mac....

I was in the same boat as you. I highly recommend the Altec Lansing AVS 300 speakers. For $30 you get two satellites and a subwoofer and they produce very good sound, especially considering the cost. I'm a music major and I'm very pleased with these speakers, so either my ear sucks or these speakers are good.

If you want to put in a bit of extra money, you can spring for the AVS500, which sports four satellites and a sub. I don't see how it matters though--you don't get REAL surround sound out of them.

If a subwoofer doesn't appeal to you (although I SEROUSLY recommend a sub) get the AVS200. Same as the 300s only without a subwoofer, and a little bit larger.

they have great sound and they are affordable for the quality.

I would suggest you get accesories you like so they last for a long time and perhaps exceed your budget by just a little if you can afford it.

bah, no sub

I want a nice set of small speakers too, but I really don't want a sub. A while ago, BOSE had some nice 2 piece speakers (although I hate bose). I want something with very minimal wire clutter. Any suggestions?
