hey guys, I'm in the market for some new speakers, what is the best set around for under $60 or near that?

Heres some links to speakers I'm currently looking at, not necessarily from computer city.

Hi Sam

If you want a good chuckle, and an explanation of the ludicrous PMPO ratings, have a look at this link.

hey sam, the Philips MMS130 is a good set of speakers, doesn't come with subwoofers or stuff like that, but comes with inbuilt options for movie, game or just normal sound settings. it's bundled with 3 speakers, almost surround sound, they cost like $64.

v.K--------- :D

those g10 are a little on the dear side. you can get the g16 for that price easy. i have the g106. price around $100. 2x sats +sub basic, sound ok but not great.

I have some TDK Tremors which will give you an Eargasm........ They are way above your stipulated budget - but I love them

I'm actually thinking about the milford 810's I'm not too fussy about sound I just need some that are Magnetically shielded so that they don't interfere with my monitor. And I think the steel grills will give it a good look, will have to go in and see what they sound like though.

Will also need to check their RMS rating hopefully it's around 10 watt RMS.

You mean 400 watts PMPO

Do you have a home stereo? Can you use that?

I run my sound card into a ETI kitset preamp, and then a inkel ma-410 power amp (2x200W) rms and then into a couple of old warfdale CRS2's which i took to with a skill saw after the woofers blew up, so there is a wire coming out of the remaining that goes to 15"JBL subs stacked in each corner of the office. It's ok, but one of the CRS2's is a tad rattly with midrange. It actually sounds OK though, and the soundcard is definatly the weekest link in the audio chain. Still its amasing what can be done with bits laying around!

My back up speakers were $2/pair at a garage sale, and were the last remains of a cheap 3in1 type stereo system.

Sorry no home stereo that I would be able to use.
