For ages now I've wanted to get a set of speakers for my powerboo and iPod. I absolutely love the SoundSticks II, but can't really justify spending that kind of money. and while the Creatures are also pretty nice, i have my doubts about the sound quality and loudness. The JBL Encounters were yet another set i considered. But right now, I can't justify spending any money on speakers. Then last week i noticed my boss had left his PC speakers behind (he went to work elsewhere) - they're a little old but they're small and have a sub. So I took them home, hooked them up and was completely blown away by them. did some research and discovered that these Cambridge SoundWorks speakers were designed by Henry Kloss. So, I'm a very happy camper right now - i got a pair of decent sounding speakers and didn't have to pay for them. Anyway, just thought I'd share.
