those are over $100 and i have heard the klipsch in a store and was not impressed at all i think they need an update, for when they were originally put out i am sure they were great but now look and sound dated and not half as clean and crisp as my edifier M3300sf 2.1 speakers and the swans i couldnt get ahold of to test or see anywhere here and never heard of the brand before but havent seen a bad review on them

If the Swam M10 is too much for you at $120 its going to be tough to find a decent 2.1 powered system unless you go used.

Swan M10.

You can also choose between black or white.

Received my Swan M10s (black) today and I am blown away by the musicality of them. Admittedly I am not an audiophile but they sure sound better than my Klipsch Promedia 2.1s!

$119 from Audioinsider.com.

Update: Sadly, the M10s developed a hum in the left channel and were returned for credit.
