I'm looking to buy a nice stereo system for my desk here. Most of the music would come from my Ipod. I'm wondering which would give me better sound:


1. A "mini" bookshelf system like the bottom one on this page: http://www.jvc.com/product.jsp?produ...0000&pathId=13

Do they sound as good as they look?


2. An Ipod dock system such as the Klipsch Ifi.

Can speakers that small really deliver great sound?


3. A pair of $500 bookshelf speakers from a company like Axiom or Onix, a $300 two-channel amp, and a $200 preamp.

This is the most expensive option, but would it be worth the price?

Headphones?

Lol I already have those (Koss PRO4AAT).


Maybe you've seen me at Head-Fi?



Well, I agree that headphones give you the best sound for your money, but there are some things that just require speakers.

Before I spent money on that JVC system, I'd think I'd rather have something like this.
