I recently was looking to purchase speakers for my Powermac DP G4 1.25. I have my setup in a normal size room which is a bedroom/office. I did not want 4.1 or 5.1, just a nice 2.1 speaker setup with good sound. I was considering buying a pair of refurbished soundsticks ($95 @ smalldog.com), but had $170 of gift cards @ bestbuy. So I was going to get a pair of jbl creature. The creatures were out of stock at bestbuy, so I started looking at other options. They had some speaker systems set up and I immediately fell for the Altec Lansing - Speaker System (3-Piece) VS4121. They sounded better than most of the 4.1 setups in the store. The sound is crisp, clear, and loud (if you want it to be). Perfect for what I was looking for. I'm glad that I didn't get any of the harman speakers. I've only had my new speakers for less than a week, but so far, so good! Hope this helps for those looking for new speakers!
