Parties? Powerful sound that doesn't distort? You, my friend, would love the speakers I have. An Audioengine S8 woofer:
They go for $349 new, but I got mine much cheaper B-stock on e-bay for $250. Paired with a pair of Klipsch RB-61 speakers, which have since been replaced with the RB-61 II:
You can get them on e-bay open box with the full 5-year warranty for $400:
And I have a Sonic Impact Super-T amp which is no longer produced, but you can get them on Amazon used:
This will make for one BADASS 2.1 speaker system.
This will put the Logitech Z-5500 and Klipsch ProMedia Ultra 5.1 to SHAME. Note that the amp is insanely good, but doesn't put out a LOT of power, which is fine if you get sensitive speakers like the RB-61s. Trust me. The thing cranks.Edited by timAHH - 6/23/11 at 11:09pm
