Not very saavy with audio, just looking for simple 2 speaker + bass setup/. If someone could help my understand and point me in the right direction, it would be dutifully appreciated
I've had the Klipsch 2.1 setup (I forget the exact name) for several years now and have really enjoyed it. Nice, clean sound and great bass for what it is. I own a SubMersive HP, so you'd think I'd be underwhelmed, but its pretty funny what that little thing can do. Last I checked I believe it was very reasonably priced, but you should double check on Best Buy or Amazon. Good luck.
PS I have not heard much else so I really don't have much to compare it to PC-wise.
I've got a Klipsch 2.1 system and am quite happy even though it wasn't cheap at 200-250. Name is Promedia 2.1. But I haven't compared it to anything. Just saying I find it good. 'Subwoofer' is better w/ good placement.
