Logitech Z623 2.1 Speaker System
These are some of the most affordable, high-quality 2.1 computer speakers around. While they’re certainly not a "budget" model, you can find them for quite a bit less than some of other speakers out there. However, even at a lower price these are solid speakers which are quite powerful and offer tremendous sound. They might not look as nice as the Soundsticks from Harman Kardon, but they perform their job admirably due to 120 watts of peak power and a powerful subwoofer.
The control pod gives you easy controls for volume and bass, plus it includes a 3.5mm input jack. If you want to save a little money while still getting terrific sound and great controls, then give this one a good look. Logitech supports it with a one-year warranty and it is made from solid materials including cloth covering to protect your speakers.
