    I would prefer some speakers - my home office phone rings and I need to answer it - headphone on occasions OK - I will get some as well

    Take a look at the Audioengine A2+, very tasty and not too expensive. I agree with the guys who say steer clear of the 2.1 PC sets, not great for music, really only good if audio is an afterthought and just needed for gaming.

    Thanks for the tip Rafterman. The Audioengine A2+ seem to be very nice speakers and are compact, something very important for my case because the space is limited. The only problem is that they are a bit pricey...
    Still they deserve to be included on my small shortlist.

    Hi everyone.

    I know a lot of time has passed since my last post but i just want to tell you guys that i have finally decided to buy new speakers!... And the chosen ones are the Audio Engine a2+. They are going to cost me much more than i wanted 227€ but i prefer to spend more on a quality product than to buy some cheap crap. And they seem to be perfect for my particular case.

    So thanks everyone for their help and opinions and if you guys want i will tell how good these puppies are after i try them of course.

    Thanks again for all the help!!!

    I have the Klipsch ProMedia 5.1 set. The subwoofer is indeed beefy, however, after years of service the power amp chip died. :( The sats, however, were not the greatest, tho I did upgrade them with a set of Quintet II's, which is an amazing upgrade for that system,.

    After that, I said goodbye to multimedia systems, and just got myself a nice Yamaha AV receiver, and some Infinity Primus 150's and a 250 to make a 5.1 system, with my own DIY subwoofer.

    my Altec Lansing AC48 I think that what there model is, after 20+ of use the sub woofer if feeding static in to the speakers seeing subwoffer connection to speakers feeds the power to them too. I still think there amazing sounding, I just cant deal with the static feeding in to speakers. now that there gone I just use my headphones. one I get feed up with that im gona find me pair of Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 speakers unless I find 2.1 speakers that are better.

    I can do same with my av-unit and 5.1 speakers but I wont cause it just over kill seeing the Av-unit creates 4x more heat then my pc does and after 20minutes of it on I feel temperature diffrence

    I feel for you. Living in an apartment now, so no home theater. Just nabbed a G6 and using my Sony MDR-SA5000, it's a wonderful combo. Just set up Dolby Atmos for Headphones, and doing movie testing. The Atmos demo files played just fine.
