    I recently purchased a set of BOSE brand computer speakers from Sam's Club. They were $59.99 and they sound great! I had always wondered why people spent big money on BOSE radios and now I know why. IMHO these are a great deal for the money.

    What's the model number? I may be in the market for a new set of PC speakers.

    Bah. Skip the BOSE and pick up some Klipsch. I got my speakers maybe 6 months ago and the sound quality is awesome. Nice clean bass with a sweet treble response.

    I got a set of 2.1 speakers for 135 at bestbuy. Surprisingly, Newegg has them listed for 150.

    Ok then. For anyone wanting great speakers at less than half the price of Klipsch, get BOSE! :cool:

    Trust me, this statement is absolutely correct.

    Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 THX desktop speakers... I picked them up through Dell for under $120 during a special sale, and there is NOTHING out there under $500 that will even come close. Match it up with a quality soundcard (in my case, external Creative Audigy2), and you're going to be blown away. These speakers are LOUD and very clear. The thump from the subwoofer is amazing.

    Caution: Klipsch will make realize that everything else is sub-par.

    Also want to add...

    Some people settle for regular $40 desktop speakers because they figure it's "good enough", but you will never regret the $130 or so you'll spend on the Klipsch. You're going to enjoy the music you play like never before.

    ^ good posting. There's no way I regret spending the money I did on my speakers. They made me realize how crappy my old Creative speakers were.

    Like Norman already stated, you'll listen to your music in a completely different way.

    i spent $35 for my new Logitech speakers w/sub and they rock. and they ARE "good enough" for me. i just want some decent speakers to listen to internet radio or monitor my mp3 player tunes when i'm on my computer.

    when i want "quality" audio i'll listen to my DVD-A and SACD multichannel discs on my home theater system.

    i don't need, want, or care about 5.1 or 7.1 setups for my computer nor do i care about spending a LOT of money for computer speakers.

    Granted... to many, it is unnecessary, and I can understand that. In my case, I do not have a home theater setup, or even a television. I watch my television through my LCD computer monitor, when I watch any. And so the money I save myself on a stand-alone dvd player, big TV, home stereo dedicated for the TV, etc is how I justify spending a little more on the "computer" speakers. DVD movies through the Klipsch speakers gives a sound experience better than any theater I've ever been to.

    I have the Klipsch Promedia 5.1 setup and they are great. I paid $399.99 from Best Buy. Logitech also makes pretty good speakers.
