I'm sorry, I just don't understand what all the 2.0, 2.1, 5.1, etc, ad nauseam, actually means and frankly, I don't really care. I currently have these beige, ancient, crappy "Labtec" speakers that I've had for almost 10 years. Time to upgrade. I have an MDD here with a 3.5mm analog speaker output that I'd like to get some new speakers to use with. Since I have an ancient (but still nifty looking) 22" cinema display, I'd like something that "looks nice" with them. Which clearly these do not: What can I use? I don't want to spend a mint, I just want better speakers. Can I use the "2.1" with the subwoofer and 2 satellite?
