    I'm on the search for some new speakers.
    Mine are fine right now (these ones.) but I would like to free up some desk space.

    I really like the set that ill0gical0ne has, and have seen many things similar to them.

    Any suggestions in the $100-250 price range? :)

    I don't really like the 'stick' speakers.

    More the box type.

    If you might be willing to put out a little more money... check out the Bose Companion 3. They sound great :)

    It depends how much the ones I have right now sell for.

    I don't know how much I want for them though. :eek:


    Those Bose's are ok, I don't need something that small, I just need to get rid of mine because the speakers have to run through CD/Cassette/Radio box, and it's quite big.

    I would have recommended the Companion 5 speakers, but might be more than you want to spend. They are fantastic in my opinion. I plan to buy them myself, at some point :D

    would the JBL creatures 2.1 not be good? I was thinking of buying these for a macbook.
    Retail at £50 ($100)

    They would be fine, except I would like something bigger.

    I've got about a 6 foot desk, with nothing on it but a 17" iMac and those Sony Speakers. :cool:

    I picked up a pair of Harman/Kardon SoundSticks on the cheap and I have to say they are the best speakers I've ever purchased, very happy with them.

    EDIT: Didn't see until after I posted that you don't like sticks, sorry.

    Yeah, the SoundSticks are nice, but I don't really need a whole lot more desk space.

    Thanks for the ideas, keep 'em coming! :)

    Anyway, I myself plan on getting AudioEngine's AP5. www.audioengine.com - every review I've read says they have astounding audio quality. They are marketed as iPod speakers, but they are far more. Check em out. $300-350 (depending on where you look)

    I'd consider these to be better than 'computer speakers'

    Also: Howis the Rokit? How's the sound and volume? I was looking at KRK's RP5, myself. Did they come with the necessary cables or did you have to buy them separately? edit: my bad, I didn't read your whole post
