Post the make, model etc.. of your speakers and what you think of them. Ideally attach a photo or a stock image of them so we know what they look like as well.

Heres mine

JBL 2.1
Never failed on me, very reliable - used all the time

Mine retail here for around 65-80 but i got them off ebay for like 40. BRAND NEW. So I was pleased with that.

Mine also have touch vol - and +, which is quite cool.

I have a set of M-Audio Studiopro 3. I got tired of the horrible audio production of other computer speakers including my old Klipsch set. After a lot of research, I learned that there isn't a sub/satellite speaker system out there that can produce really good sound. These speakers I have now produce the best sound I've ever heard out of my computer. They're basically semi-professional audio monitors, so they have to produce accurate sound. They don't have booming bass, but I don't really listen to anything that has a lot of bass anyway.

They also come with a wedge base to angle to speakers to aim at your head while on your desk. They're not the prettiest thing sitting on my desk, but there is a line to form over function, and most computer speakers step way over that line.

work
cheapie 2.0 set that came with an old sony vaio i had.
they sound ok for work and i'm not worried about them getting destroyed by incompetent coworkers.

home - macbook
sometimes i use various headphones/earbuds.
most of the time i just use the internal speakers for normal use.
if i want/need speakers, i attach a nice one-piece unit: creative usb powered laptop/travel speakers.

home - stereo
due to space restrictions imposed by kids toys and my wife's sense of "clutter", my large fantastic yamaha floor speakers are closeted for now, and i'm relegated to a decent set of jbl shelf speakers.

For my TV/Gaming setup, I use Logitech X-530's. Not the best, but $60 for a nice-sounding surround sound, you can't really complain.



For my PowerBook, I use Logitech Z-3e's. These speakers are amazing!

I'm a Klipsch guy. I love the sound. I currently have a set of Promedia 2.1 THX hooked up to my iMac, but I'm looking for a way to hook up my second pair to return to a Promedia 4.2 THX configuration. Anyone has an idea how to do this in view that we only have one input jack on the iMac?

I had a nice set of speakers on my old system, but they're two input so I dug out some OLD altec's that have a sub are are single input. It'll do till I get around to getting better (and nicer looking at that) ones.

oh and eric, I know what you mean.. my good speakers are in a closet too
