I dont know what the specs really mean or what these things are like when compared to a lot of the recommendations people make for new purchases.

I have no baseline as to what they are like so not sure if a $20 set would be better or if I need a $100 pair to get some upgraded quality.
They are hooked up to my PC via a small desktop amp. Used for PC gaming, music, video watching and such. They sit on a desk next to my montior. They are a huge step up from the generic plug in style PC speakers I was using before.
AR makes decent stuff. $100/pr
speakers won't be any big improvement, but a $200-300 pair would be. You'd probably be better off with small sub though. The $100-150 Dayton subs have speaker level inputs/outputs so they would be easily hooked up to your mini-amp.
~ Are you a "geek hobbyist" obsessed with squeezing out that last 5-10% improvement? The economy will thank you...especially the Chinese one. Or are you more of a get-set-and-forget "casual user" who simply wants to increase your enjoyment of movies, TV and gaming? Relax, HT isn't rocket science, nor does it have to cost an arm and a leg---especially if you ignore the aforementioned vocal minority. And remember to smile...it's just a silly hobby, after all. :)
