    Just looking for some small speakers for music-only in secondary rooms (not main home theater area). Checked out www.partsexpress.com and they have some Dayton satellites at about $30/pr. Think those would be sufficient for living/bed/dining rooms?

    Best Buy has Insignia $55 pair, no shipping charges. Getting good reviews.

    Got a link for those? I checked out the Insignia's, but was a bit leary of anything branded by Best Buy as being quality. Should also mention I'm looking for something wall-mountable and not too big; satellite's would be preferable.

    Thanks for the link! Good price. Might work well for upstairs dining/living room, but at 13lbs and 18"x12", they're a bit too big for wall-mounting (in my opinion).

    Take a look at the Infinity Primus thread. Might be the way to go.

    Best Buy also has some smaller Insignia speakers.

    Gave them a listen the other day at Best Buy. They didn't sound all that bad for as little and cheap as they are. They didn't compare to some of the more expensive satellites, but at $20/pr I can't really complain. Might pick up a few pairs and wire them up and see how I like them. Can always return them within 30 days if I'm not satisfied.
