That is one setup. It won't be nearly as bass heavy, but will image better than the Promedia 2.1s while offering a fair amount of low end, but a much much clearer high end.
There is also the Swans M10, which are generally around $100 or so, and its a bit better than the Promedia 2.1. But they are hard to find. And the Micca/Lepai would be the better choice imo. You gain far better clarity over muddled bass.
If you are willing to go the Ebay route to get one of the items, you can upgrade the T-Amp from the Lepai to the Indeed TA2021, but you'd have to import it from China from the manufacturer, as buying it off Amazon would cost a bit too much.
Here is the link to it: Indeed TA2021 T-Amp
If you are interested in listening to how the Indeed sounds with the Micca Motion (will be affected by whatever speaker system you have setup right now, but should give you a clue to how they sound), then watch Zeos Pantera's video on it here:
Alternatively, the newest Dayton B652s are actually pretty damn good, and they fixed a fair bit of the issues that some of their earlier revisions had. And might be better than the Micca Motion MB42s.

The Corsair SP2500s are overpriced pieces of crap that emphasize bass over anything else, and completely screw you out of actually being able to listen to your music properly. They are awful.
