The subwoofer on my Klipsch iFi's I was using as speakers with my Mac Pro died so I have been searching for replacement speakers for a while. I researched quite a few bookshelf and monitors and among others, the Sky Blue Exo 2.1 system kept getting good reviews and comments from various places. I work near a Guitar Center and they had them listed for $349 on their web site. I stopped by after work to check them out and they were discontinuing carrying this particular model. They had a clearance price of $199 for a new system. I jumped on it (I was considering it at full price) and brought it home and set them up. For the price I got them for they are a steal - these things rock! The satellites are just the right size for a desk and the volume and subwoofer output controller fits perfectly under my monitor. It also has a headphone input and iPod input on it. The speakers are very detailed and put out pretty decent volume. If you are in the market for speakers I highly recommend these!
