    I've been debating a bit whether to get some good speakers or just continue using the internal ones in the iMac in my sig. I think the sound quality is pretty good right now, but I would like some more bass. The thing is that I really like the clean look of my desk right now.

    Anyone have any affordable recommendations? $200 is a big outlandish for 2.1 speakers.

    These aren't out yet, and are more then what you want to pay, but i think they are pretty damn cool. They are ZeroSticks from DVForge (also known as Mac Mice). They have some cool accesories for your iMac.

    The zero sticks look strange to me, and those are both expensive, lol! Ahhh...
    I wish I could get soundsticks, but aren't they $200?

    in 29 minutes i am off to the compusa on 57th and broadway to pick up the (white) JBL Creature 2 2.1 set. wanted something to match the Mac, about 100 bucks, and with decent reviews. well, check out the speakers on apple.com, and almost all the reviews are 5 stars. works for me.

    I'm currently listening to iTunes through a set of these – they're very nice speakers. A thumbs up from me!

    Can you just pick up a subwoofer and use the internals as your left and right? Put the sub on the floor to keep your desk clean.

    Creature 2s are definitely some nice speakers. I got them for my girlfriend for our anniversary (along side the typical sentimental stuff). Also, if you plan on buying any speakers, you should use www.froogle.com. I got the Creatures for only $70, through Amazon.

    thanks, but damn you...ruining either my instant satisfaction, or 4 or 5 beers worth of price difference. :)
