    Default Please recommend 2.1 speakers

    I'm thinking of getting a good pair of 2.1 speakers for my laptop.

    Main usage for music rather than for movies.

    Any recommendations? Altec Lansing....Logitech???

    No budget limit except that I would not spend $500 and above for a 2.1 design.

    Thanks for your advice.

    Cheers!

    thanks for recommending the Aego M.

    I just checked out the reviews on line and they look SOLID!

    Any idea where I can get these in Singapore?

    I got mine at Sim Lim, City Electronics. Worth every cent. Heard its cheaper now. Go and have a listen. Thankfully the guy who served me was not your typical Sim Lim character.

    How much do they cost roughly? Read through the reviews and it seems really good.

    $2xx? Has been going at this price for a pretty long time. Call 'em to double check.

    Anyway, BOSE Companion 5 is just not worth it.

    You are really poisonous!

    I've recently bought the Creative x-Fi USB 5.1 device for my laptop. This accepts the usual RCA jacks.

    The BOSE companion 5 is a USB device without the RCA cables, and would therefore bypass my creative device.

    This is the only reason why I would prefer the Aego-M over the Bose companion 5.

    Thanks anyway for your extra dose of POISON!

    Plus companion 5 is really expensive. But i would say its worth the money. However if you have a budget, the Aego-M seems a pretty decent speaker.

    For a 2.1 setup, Ageo M is worth every cent.
