  • What's a good stereo 2.1 speaker set for my PC?

    Last one dropped off the table & broke. I was happy with 2 speakers but would like a 2.1 set, or just 2.0 again.

    I hate when that happens (and it has to me, too)!

    I don't have the audiophile ear of some of our peers here, but I've been very satisfied with a 2.0 set of Logitech speakers I bought at Amazon, the X-140 2.0 Speakers. These I got specifically for my home desk to plug into either of my laptops for those times I wanted to watch a DVD (anime, naturally) or play a game or mystery theater podcast and didn't need to be quiet for others via headphones. As this desk of mine is open on three sides, I did not want to have to deal with a subwoofer to get in the way (plus that much extra bass would probably net me complaints such that I would have to go back to headphones), so I specifically sought out a 2.0 set. These have dials to set tone and volume (and on/off), but remember to coordinate the volume setting of the adjustment knob to your computer's output volume setting. These two speakers feel sturdy, look good, are a good size for my environment, and produce good sound for me, plus are a very reasonable price.

        What's your budget? I'm generally a fan of studio monitors for this application.

          I really love my Altec Lansing 2.1 Speaker System. I think you can find them still in Walmart stores for $25.

            I have a pair of KRK Rokit 5 studio monitors that are really nice. I don't know what kind of budget we're on, but they're not expensive in my opinion.
