What are the best satellite speakers I can get for $300 a pair ?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I need two small speakers. Like the size of say Monitor Audio R90's. Looking for the best possible sound quality for $150 each. I know that's not a lot of money, but I have to save for the sub to go with them, so I can't go crazy. What satellites should I consider ?

along with the MA R90's look at the:

I've heard the Martin Logan MLT-2 are rebadged Cinema 90 speakers. Newegg quite often puts the 5.1 package on sale for $299. Sign up for the emails to be notified of a sale. Might be all you need since it includes a subwoofer.

If you can find any of these locally you should try to audtion yourself. You can listen to the Def Tech and CB-5 at Best Buy Magnolia stores. The others may be harder to find.
