Can anyone recommend anything by Logictech etc that's reasonably priced, and gives a pure, unchanged sound?

They're going to be used by musicians (on a non-existent budget :p) so something approaching studio reference speakers would be good.

I'm not sure if logitech does anything that highend.

You'd probably be better off with a better, more high end brand

That's what you really want, I've used one they are awesome, and couple it with a 5m one of these (http://www.trademe.co.nz/Electronics-photography/iPod-MP3-accessories/Cables/auction-241180568.htm) and this (http://www.computerlounge.co.nz/components/componentview.asp?partid=9940) and these (http://www.trademe.co.nz/Electronics-photography/Home-audio/Amplifiers-tuners/auction-241214827.htm).

The best Logitech speaker system would probably be a Z-5500 but it's no good for doing studio type work.

It really depends on what their definition of reasonably priced is. You can go and spend 10k on a pair of reference quality speakers if you want, in comparison to that a bit over 1k is cheap. :p

A good sound card with a >100db s-n ratio is a must though. I wouldn't want to go any cheaper than the one above.
