    I got some of the old Edifier RT1600 speakers.
    Work perfectly for a small mancave-office, not felt the need to change, or upgrade.
    They were only about £60 when I bought them new.

    I've got a pair of Creative T20s. Great speakers but I don't use them any more as the computer is right next to the boy's bedroom, so I just use headphones now.

    Still run an old Cambridge Soundworks Desktop Theater 5.1 system. (Think the model is DTT3500 but not 100% sure). Im sure theres probably newer alternatives to this, but it really does boom when asked to. Got no need to swap it at all just yet.

    Still running my AE aego m's although starting to think about changing to just 2.0 to save some space.

    edit: damn.. just realised they've got to be getting on for 10 years old, if not a bit more...

    Logitech 506's, a few years old now and might upgrade to 906's when they go (and they are on sale)

    Re: QOTW: Which PC speakers are you using?

    Creative GigaWorks T20 Series II. I don't have the space for a multi speaker setup and I've been more than happy with these for the past 2-3 years. They're far better than any of the previous cheaper speakers I've had, including cheaper Creative ones. Just need to knock the bass dial down to about the 10 o'clock position to get them sounding at their best.

    Logitech X-140 2.0 speakers
    cost me £20 from Amazon 6 years ago, the sound is meh but good enough for any DVD/Bluerays/youtube I play when im not watching alone (i use my Asus ROG Delta Core headphones when I'm by myself)

    Re: QOTW: Which PC speakers are you using?

    They weren't designed for the job, but I have a pair of Gale Gold Monitors that I picked up cheap off ebay. Can't imagine any dedicated PC speaker coming close to these for thirty quid.

    Re: QOTW: Which PC speakers are you using?

    Nothing beats studio monitors in terms of accurate sound reproduction, so I use a pair of M-Audio AV 40 coupled with an Esi Prodigy X-Fi Nrg sound card and they sound really good at any volume level, which is ideal for a bedroom setup.

    Re: QOTW: Which PC speakers are you using?

    Creative X7 paired with E-MU XM7.

    Reason - I wanted a good DAC & powerful headphone amp to drive hard to drive Headphones. The X7 has a Mic input so TS can be achieved without other hardware & software.
    The speakers are bookshelf & pair really well with the X7 integrated amplifier. Sound really good at low volume.

    I've tried many PC speaker's, soundcards and been very disappointed.

    This set up has been the best for my needs, the only negative is the overall price to achieve.

    One of the cheapest ways to get a good sound is a normal integrated amp & bookshelf speakers run from your Mobo or soundcard.

    Active speakers can be good too but if you look on secondhand market you see loads of cheap amps & speakers for little money as loads of people are moving to smart speakers.

    I use a pair of Edifier studio monitors. They have served me well but are perhaps due for an upgrade soon finances permitting.
