    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.

    Hi Ben - welcome to the forum! I'd have to agree w/ Bob, i.e. we need more information: 1) Assume these are for your computer; 2) What are these to be used for, i.e. regular computer use, reproduction of hi-quality stereo music, use w/ music apps, such as GarageBand; 3) What size and number of speakers to you want, e.g. just 2, 2 + sub, or surround sound; and 4) What is your price range? For starters, look HERE and let us know the answers to the questions. Dave

    My son and I recently went through a search for the best speaker system for his Mac at the best price.

    A lot will depend on how much you are willing to spend. There are excellent speakers in every price range, but, of course, a speaker system in the $50 and under range aren't going to sound nearly as good as speakers in the $300 and under range.

    My son settled on these, and he is wildly happy with them:

    Harman Kardon SoundSticks
    $169
    https://www.amazon.com/Harman-Kardon...dp/B0042F3K9W/

    We listened to a ton of computer speakers and the Harman Kardon SoundSticks were easily a cut above any others. Even better than many speakers going for twice the price.

    If you want something really inexpensive, these are pretty amazing for such a low price;

    Logitech Z313 Speaker System
    $29
    https://www.amazon.com/Logitech-980-...dp/B002HWRZ2K/

    Logitech Z313 Speaker System

    One of the nice things, at least I appreciate it, is the connected volume remote control that it and some similar 2.1 speaker sets have.

    I have a similar Phillips set that cost under $40.00±.

    It may depend on your ear's hearing capabilities and/or the type of music you listen to, and how intently.

    Have to agree with Randy about the Harmon Kardon SoundSticks. Can't beat the price and sound. The US Navy Exchange here in Fort Worth carries them in their electronics section along with many more expensive setups including Bose.

    +1 for the HK Soundsticks.

    Had mine for years with no issues and with careful set-up of the sub they still sound fantastic.
