Default speakers!

What are the best speakers out there? More specifically, I am looking for a
2.1 system in the $40-$90 range. Is altec lansing a good brand? If heard suff about them.
I dont have enough room on my desk for anymore than 2 speakers, its so messy

All of these are pretty good speakers. Unless you have something more specific, like prefered brand etc.

two words.....THX Certified
I have the Logitech Z-2300 2.1 system, and while thats a little over your budget, I would still recommend them

The Z-3e's? Eh, they're not bad.

And I already posted the Creative i-Trigue L3500's. They're nice.

And the Z-5500's are overkill. Completely unnecessary for normal uses.

Yeah, I expect the Logitech Z-3's to be the same as the z5500e 5.1 speakers but 2.1... So they should be great.

As for the Creative ones, I've gone off Creative a bit since I learnt about the power specs and outtages they have on them, even though they are great for soundcards, I think i'm going to get the Logitech set next.

Actually, I've heard that Creative's GigaWorks is hands down awesome for gaming. Just awesome for gaming.

But they suck for movies and music.
