    Hello-

    I'm looking to get a new set of speakers...
    I've been looking at the Bose Companion II & III series, as well as the Harmon Kardon Soundsticks II they have at the Apple Store.
    I'm looking for highish end speakers (reputable brand that is) for $250 or below.
    I'm open to buying used ones from amazon or another site if I can get them for under $250

    Also, I use a 2.1 rebranded set that I got with a windows computer I bought in 2002. (Considered a major upgrade at the time, although i don't know the original brand) They are quite old, and the cord is falling apart. Honestly, will I see an improvement in sound quality, or should I just splice and replace the power cord and continue using my current ones?


    Thanks!

    +1 on these. Although I may be a bit biased, because with my employee discount I got them for $70 instead of the +$150 MSRP. These are really nice speakers in a relatively sleek and manageable form factor, producing very crisp and loud sound.
