I picked up a pair of the blue KEF Egg for my bench at work, and got them for the $249.99 from Accessories4Less.com deal.
Very impressive, ideal near-field performance from the little Uni-Q driver in the sealed enclosure and does NOT dominate the desktop (workbench top in my case.) I picked up an old Totem Dreamcatcher 7.5" "woofer" for $131 off eBay, and though I need to service the amp to get rid of a little buzz, it definitely fills in all the lows I need for music.
In my home office I have a pair of KEF LS50's paired with a KEF Kube 10b sub, so I do know what a really good desktop system can do. This sub $400 investment gets really
close to that performance for a fraction of the cost and 1/4 the size.
