    2.1 Speakers

    Hi,

    Looking for some smaller speakers, 2.1 ideally for my bedroom. Just be music and video through my PC.

    Upto £100 say?

    I've had some Aego M, Logitech Z2300 or Creative T20s reccomended to me, any good?

    It's 4.98*

    Re: 2.1 Speakers

    I posted a similar thread recently (albeit at a lower budget) and didnt get much of a response; had a look around and came across these - lots of people seem to rave about them. I know they're 2.0 but it seems as though you wouldn't need a sub. I'm changing my original budget to get these.

    And sorry, I know it's slightly above budget. Check out the next version down too - the AV30s.

    Aego M's are the best out of those, but you will need a good sound card to hear it.

    Personally I'm happy with my Creative T3100's, pretty cheap with enough bass to do my music and movies justice.

    Will only be using onboard sound at best, so I'm not looking for anything amazing. Just something that does the job and sounds good?

    Re: 2.1 Speakers

    t40s are supposed to be good.

    I have these Audioengine a2 speakers http://www.amazon.co.uk/Audioengine-.../dp/B000VKEFN2

    , though you can shop around. You won't find a better pair of speakers for the price/size combination and absolutely no need for a sub .

    I think the t40s would probably be the best bet, I nearly got the av40 but looked a bit big for my desk, so coughed up the extra and got the audioengines for more compactness.
