You sure get what you pay... in that price range, Altec Lansing makes some semi-decent speakers, too.

Ive heard good things about the logitech budget stuff. Not really something I know any specifics about.

I personaly prefer the powerfull and complete sound you get from a decent pair of floorstanding speakers, I find that even higher/mid quality sub&satalite setups fail to fill a decent sized room, and often lack in mids, still, you should get a year or two out of them...

With that budget I would definitely recommend the Altec Lansing 2.1 system VS2421 wich also has a compact subwoofer.

I like the Logitech aesthetics better, but the Altec Lansing ones look nice too - they just don't merge as well with the rest of my pc system. 'Might put them behind the monitor...

You know, I'm renovating my pc's entire peripherals system, buying a Samsung 226BW monitor, and a Logitech Wave Cordless keyboard+mouse set. I was also going to buy a webcam+microphone peripheral, but the microphone included in the Altec Lansing speakers will be enough(and I don't really need a webcam). Those speakers look like they're exactly what I was looking for.

Do you know if they also produce an higher quality system with an integrated microphone? Because I would not need to buy a separate web+mic and I could raise the budget for speakers to around 100€.

I dont think so. Also I am afraid I havent seen an Altec Lansing sound system with built in microphone feature. If you want a better system then prices won't fit your current budget. For a good system I recommend Altec Lansing MX5021 if you aren't a bass addict. These sell for $160 and include THX certification and a nice mini remote control.

My bad. These speakers are discontinued items, so check out FX5021 or if FX6021.

Err... The FX6021 would be too heavy on my funds, and I couldn't find the FX5021 at all. Maybe you mean the FX4021 system?

Anyway, the speakers with an integrated microphone are the ones you listed first, the VS2421. I think I'm getting those, now I just need to find them on some shop that ships to Europe...

Ahhh. Spend the extra money on...Klipsch THX computer speakers. By far the best speakers. They are well worth the money. You will be very, very happy.

Both of those are out of budget, sadly. Anyways, do any of you know where I can get the Altec Lansing speakers? I can't seem to find european retailers...

Just choose the country you live in and it will bring up the retailers.

Sorry for the LATE reply

Onkyo or Yamaha reciever with Optical in (because these 2 brands are cheap and sound good)
add on a set of Paradigm/Energy/Polk Audio speakers
add in a 12" sub

this will sound better than any computer speaker setup.

I don't know about Onkyo, but my friend has a low end Yamaha home theater receiver and it sounds like crap. A while ago, he asked me to come by because he though there was something weird with the sound, and there is: there is a big hole in the high mids. We checked it out, it's not the EQ, it's not the source, it's the amp itself, even when using analog or digital in. It may be different on more recent ones or higher end models.

I use altec lansing VS2321. Got it for 55 bucks here in NZ. I'd say for the price it is pretty good. Especially the bass. It is better that my creative's sub. though if u like more power get the Bigger altecs. The highs lacks sparkle at the top end though only when your listening to singers with really high voices

well that is just my opinion
