I am thinking about upgrading my POS 2$ speekers that came with my computer (E-machines 400i) For obveouse reasons.

I need some advise as which brand has the best "bang for the buck". 2.0 or 2.1

P.S. Wont spend more than 40-50 on puter speekers.

If I were you I'd steer clear of all the Creative/Cambridge speakers. I've had a chance to test 2 models of theirs (an old 4.1 set and a new 4.1 set) and they both had horrible hissing sounds when nothing is playing, and they both pop like mad when you turn the computer on or off.

I have a set of Altec Lansing speakers myself which are perfect. They were expensive back then but they should have some cheaper models out now.

Yamaha also have some nice 2.0 and 2.1 options. I'd be happy with either of these two brands if you were looking for something cheap but with good quality.
