    my speakers recently stopped working (I took them into to get fixed and the guy said that nothing is visibly wrong with them, but they won't work anyways and to get it fixed at a place that specializes in speakers would cost more than to just get a new set) so I'll be getting a new set soon I guess so anybody got any suggestions as to what to get?
    Any help would be welcome!

    Rob,

    Are you looking for 2, 4 or 5 speakers?? Also, budget is another item to consider.

    Depending on your budget and desk space, you also might consider a lower end receiver with a stereo speaker setup. I did and am happy that I made the switch, but it's not for everyone.

    Also, you might want to venture over to the Klipsch forum under the Pro Media topic and do some research over there. Those guys are always talking computer speakers and its not just focused on the Klipsch product. Lots of opinions there on the PC speaker aspect of audio.

    The highest that I'd go is $100.
    My last set was 2 speakers and a sub so I'll probably go the same route.
    Thanks for the link! [​IMG]

    Rob: Not a speaker expert, but I'd suggest going with either Logitech or Klipsch's newest 2.1 models. Not sure of the specific model #s on each of them, but a quick Google/Amazon/NewEgg search should find it for you. [​IMG]

    I was hoping your price range was a little higher... I was going to suggest the Z-680s (currently #2 on my wish list after an LCD monitor). [​IMG]

    I'm more concerned about buying more DVDs than getting computer speakers so I'm staying kind of cheap on these.

    These are what I ended up buying and I got them for less than half the price listed on the following page
