    I personally don't think you're going to find anything really good at that price point. If that's all you can spend then I guess those are probably as good as anything else you'd get for 50 bucks.

    There really is no such thing as a good Japanese speaker "these days" compared to US and Canaidian makers for the price. Better engineering and far better drivers.

    I think Home Theater Direct may have some sub $50 speakers in their Level 1 section. I can't comment on their sound though.

    Edit: Although more than you may want to spend, I just went to their site and noticed they have some level 3 b-stock for $129 (but at that price the door opens a bit more).

    I'd save your money for a nicer set of entry level bookshelf speakers from a good company like B&W or Paradigm.

    the best is a LONG LONG way from the sonys... even mediocre IMO is a far cry from those sonys...

    i dont think B&W will be in the price range. the cheapest i know of are like $200/pr on sale.

    maybe stick with stereo if its just for a room? people underestimate how good stereo can sound for movies, if its a good set of speakers.
