Windows 7: Desktop pc Speaker Suggestions ?

Desktop pc Speaker Suggestions ?


Want to purchase a pair of "small" desktop speakers for my desktop pc.
One to go on each side of monitor.

Don't want a woofer.

But, am hard of hearing, so would need something with a decent amount of volume. This is an important requirement. Not sure if this eliminates all of the USB powered ones, or not ?

Would like to keep the cost at $ 35 or so, max.

Looked at all the reviews in Amazon, and you can really go crazy.
Sure are a lot of offerings in this price range, and below.
Seems like all of the reviews always have about 15 % or so that don't like what they bought.

Have always gotten very good advice here.

So, may I please ask:

What do you like, and what would be your suggestion as to what to purchase ?

Happy Holidays, and thanks,

I doubt anyone can suggest a speaker system for you. It may fall in the 15% for you too.
It's $30 or $40 and with Amazon most can be returned with an RA from sender and paid shipping.
I never had a prob with Amazon dealers if not satisfied or didn't work or such. The ones I'm looking
at, and there are a ton of them, all have at least 4 star ratings. Just get the wattage you think you need
and go for it. Heck, drop a hundred bucks and get Bose Companion 2 Series III Multimedia Speakers I have these and they're great. (Or go to ebay and take a chance on used but cheap ones.)
You can't go wrong with that. (15% will say nay - too expensive - power ratings not shown -
you pay for the name and advertisements - yada yada yada)

Good luck.

Speaker suggestions
ASUS mobo - onboard sound - NO sound card - would like a pair of speakers and a subwoofer. Would prefer wireless is possible. Don't need the best, and don't want the worst. No heavy audio tasks. Mostly listen to music from the 50s which sounds great on almost anything.:cool: TIA
