    I used to get my kit made by them from PCnextday... Seems they don't stock it anymore, though :@

    Only stuff I can find by them now is miles outta your price range. Sorry mate :/

    I don't see where you said that

    I wanted the Klipsch all along but £100 is pushing it right now, 2 months ago it would have been fine

    I had a listen to one of those sets at a friend's room and they were ok, but i wasn't too impressed. The tiny sats and small sub didn't go very far. I thought they'd be a lot bigger

    That was another thread. There are so many of these speaker threads. Anyway, I doubt that you'll be satisfied with anything less. Maybe you should get some Sennheisers instead...

    I'm not trying to be too picky or anything

    Its just such an obvious flaw to me, i just need a cheap (sub-£50) set with competent mid range drivers

    Ok, I now have about £65 for speakers. Got refunded for the X-230 and i've sold my other set.

    The Z-2300 should be cheaper i reckon, considering they are only £10 off the Megaworks

    These seem promising:

    Or the Z3 logitech, but i'm still not convinced of their 1 tweeter design.

    EDIT: Actually, i reckon these would do it:

    £55 so its right in the budget, seems competent

    Yeh, both of those should be alright.

    I would go for the Creatives out of those two.

    Cheap and tacky, yes I agree, but they produce better sound.

    Believe, between those two, the creatives have a better sound.

    Right, i have the Logitech Z2200 which are basically the same as the Z2300 in a different shell and minor differences to the actual drivers (Same size though)

    They are very good for pc speakers if you position them correctly (small sweetspot!). The bass is very strong but when eq is level, bass knob turned to min and bass turned down a little in the creative panel (I'm using X-Fi Extreme music). Other people say they stuff a sock in the port.

    The drivers in the sats are 3" with a polished cone in the middle and a small port above them, if you want a pic just PM me and i'll sort it out. Sub is a ported 8" and very good as pc speakers go.

    So i spent £85 on my Z2200 about a year back (went for them over Z2300 due to looks as SQ was apparently near identical) and dont regret it.

    So if you want some 2.1 speakers at that sort of price that will sound good in most types of music (Very good in acoustic etc but a bite messy in busy music such as rock) then i can recommend them

    Hope that helps
    Ben
