    Computer / Office 2.1 Speakers

    Need some advice if there are any audiophiles on here.

    I am moving soon and will be after a half-decent sound setup for my computer in a small'ish room.

    Currently on my computer I have a Cambridge Audio 340A amplifier and some Mordaunt Short speakers which I love, these will be moving downstairs for use in the living room for the TV / entertainment.

    I am currently on the hunt to replace the above for my computer.

    I have around a £150 budget and have mainly been looking at 2.1 setups.
    I did think about buying a cheap 2nd hand amp and some cheap Gale speakers but think it would probably be best to stick to a 2.1.

    I guess the main two things I am after are clarity and lower bass frequency - not fussed about volume as the room my computer will be in is only small.

    I have looked at ebay - there seem to be a lot of speakers by "Edifier" - are these any good?

    Only these Klipsch speakers have caught my eye so far, which are over my budget (may possibly be able to stretch if anyone can recommend them):
    Play.com - Buy online at Play.com and read reviews. Free delivery to UK and Europe!

    Can anyone recommend anything?

    I have Bose companion 3 on my pc, in a room 30' x 14', and it fills the room very easily.

    Heh... I just decided to move away from a 2.1 setup as I wanted more clarity/transparency and less doof-doof... that's what the setup in the living room is for

    I ended up walking down to Richer Sounds and asking if they would do Cambridge Audio TOPAZ AM5 Black | Stereo Amplifier | Richer Sounds and Wharfedale DIAMOND 9.0 Black | Speakers Per Pair | Richer Sounds for £150. Speakers are still breaking in, so hopefully bottom end will fill out a bit with use, but its a nice clean sound for a computer setup.

    Thanks for the advice, the Bose Companion 3 look good - slightly out of my price range though.

    Not a bad route fishyfish! I can vouch for the Cambridge Audio gear, the TOPAZ is the lower end of the range but still performs well, I have a TOPAZ CD player and cant argue for the price I paid!

    I ended up purchasing a Corsair SP2500 2.1 speaker set. Wouldn't usually buy a brand that specialists in other areas, in this case Computer RAM.etc but going by reviews people seem to be pretty pleased with them.
    Managed to get them for just over £120 from the supplier I use for work. Im slightly worried about how good the clarity will be - Ill let you know when they arrive!
