having got cheap 2.1 speaker sets twice now, and being disappointed both times (too much bass and distortion, poor build quality in more recent set) i'd like to get some new speakers as the right satellite speaker has stopped because the connector snapped off and can't be replaced (this could be my feet's work but either way I need new speakers).
So I've set the budget to about £100 this time and am wondering what to do. Do I forgo the cheap subwoofer all together and just go for a good 2.0 set like the creative t40 series II? Or are the Acoustic Energy Aego Ms a good set for around that price bracket? One thing I do not want is too much bass, I already have the bass dial pretty low at the moment and I can't be doing with thumping when I don't want it (in films for instance).
The other thing is that I might need to be moving these speakers to and from uni by train or aeroplane, should I go for the 2.0 set and, judging by my thoughts on bass, be satisfied with the T40s level?
Any thoughts welcome
