I bought my Logitech Z-2300 used, locally, for $80. One of the speakers had a little bit of minor cosmetic damage on one corner of the base but it's barely noticeable, and completely functional.

Definitely a great system!

I love mine. I got them when they were on clearance at Best Buy (The one time I'd buy something from them). They are pretty good entry-level studio monitors.

I have the Creative Labs GigaWorks T20 Series II 2.0 speakers. Recommended by someone on head-fi. Needed something small as I don't have much desk space and studio monitors were a bit big. Great sound out of these things thumb.gif

Altec Lansing MX5021 (should be a bit above 150)

Klipsch Pro Media (not sure of the current price)

Both are a bit costly but these are top of line.

Else you could go for Altec Lansing VS2621 In india this system costs around 3000 K INR around 60-70$ .
