    Ok, So here's the deal I'm looking for speakers for my Mac and They can be 2.1 or 5.1 doesn't matter too much. But it has to be in the $0-200 range They don't have to be audiophile quality it just has to sound pretty good.

    The best set I've heard (and what I currently use now) for ~$150 is the Klipsch ProMedia 2.1

    Bose Companion 3 also sounds good also but it costs $250.

    For $240 you can get an Onkyo HTIB with digital optical input. Get a Toslink cable and you're talking some serious sound - Dolby Digital and DTS true 5.1 surround. Not to mention the half of your home theater/entertainment system that would rock the walls. This unit is the successor to the one I use in my sig.

    Swan M200's will blow any "computer" speakers out of the water. Great speakers.

    The Logitech's will blow away any pure computer speaker. Heavy Bass good for movies, hip-hop and games...but if that's not your interest monitors or some cheaper options would be smarter.


    I vote (once again) for the Altec Lansing FX6021

    If you want to go frugal, Logitech's R-10 speakers have great sound for small inexpensive speakers. They lack good bass, but overall they're great speakers. 1000x better when you're used to hearing your MacBook's teeny speakers!

    I just plug into my surround sound. :p

    But I need to get some studio speakers ASAP. Any affordable recommendations?

    Logitech Z-4i

    They come in White to suit the Mac, and with fantastic sound quality for a very good price.
