    Im filling out my home office. Got my cinema display (on an arm), another external display (on an arm), my laptop stand (coming in the mail), and my wireless keyboard and mouse.

    What's a good (reasonably priced) external speaker for my MBP?

    Can't wait until these come out. A little pricy but probably some of the best.

    I use a pair of AudioEngine A5's which IMO are FANTASTIC for the money (about $300 new)...I use a Velodyne Micro-Vee 1000 watt sub but you won't like the price...LOL
    The A5's sound spectacular even without a sub but they pair nicely with most small subs in the $150-$300 range...The system was pretty much built for use with the Airport Express...
    I've had people say my desktop audio system sounds better than most home systems they've heard...:D
    You can read a review of the AudioEngine system HERE

    thanx for the replies.

    I was thinking in the $200 range but its not a hard figure. I was also thinking about keeping it lean; are there any 'all-in-one' solutions? One external device to plug into the computer?

    I'm enjoying Bowers & Wilkins MM1. Small with a great definition, especially across the vocal range.
