Windows 7: speaker shopping, need ones that can handle music

speaker shopping, need ones that can handle music

I have a cheap pair of Cyber Acoustics which work well for PC and Netflix/TV audio, but they're rather poor for music- either PC or MP3 player. I need something new. My 3 choices, as I'm really not getting $100 speakers, are these, and I want to know if anyone here has experience with any of them

$30 pair, appealing for the cheaper price Creative A250 2.1 Multimedia Speaker System: Computers & Accessories

Costlier, but the satellite unit has some useful features to it Cyber Acoustics 30 Watt Powered Speakers with Subwoofer for PC and Gaming Systems in Frustration Free Packaging, (CA-3602FFP): Computers & Accessories

Cheaper than the CA, but the satellite lacks an aux input and reviews suggest the volume knob doesn't affect headphone volume Logitech Z313 Speaker System: Electronics

I have the Logitech Z313's and they sound pretty good. I use my headphones attached right to the computer, so I don't know how the headphone controls on the pod work.

One thing I will say is to keep your subwoofer in the center of your stereo image, between the two satellite speakers. Otherwise you wind up with one sided audio. The subwoofer puts out more high frequencies than you would expect, and if you have it off to the side, like I originally did, the sound all seems to come from the side where the sub is.

Other than that, I'm really happy with them and I think they're a good choice. Especially for that price.

Right speaker thinks he's a left speaker
If the volume is low everything works fine, but once you turn it up using the volume button, the left speaker stops working. This only happens when I use the button, and not when I adjust the system sound. I tested it with the audio configuration, and I can hear what's supposed to be the left...
