    I want to upgrade my cheesy speakers on my pc, I use it a lot for learning songs and general listening. I want it to sound good and important to hear all instruments, they would have to be powered and not expensive say 400 budget..desk top styles
    Thanks TB....

    Hello. You didn't say what size speakers you wanted. But you could try these and probably you would be pretty happy:

    I use Corsair SP2500 system. I don't believe they're still in production. Output is 250 watts RMS with the sub.

    Should I get monitors or stereo speakers?

    The stereo speakers. I've used these Bose speakers since 2012, at least. They sit on top of my M-Audio monitors. The Boses are plugged into the motherboard sound card (Realtek) and the monitors are plugged into my audio interface (Tascam).

    I have Windows default to the Bose (Realtek) audio.

    I'd recommend these (wired), plus they're only $100 vs $250.

    One weird thing about this photo (and all the others on the page linked to above)...

    Unless they've changed the wiring over the years, the speaker with the volume control is the LEFT speaker in the stereo pair.

  7. For small size and big sound , Bose all the way. They make several speakers that are both computer specific and a few that can be used with just about anything including your computer. Fortunately , I have a Bose outlet about 15 miles from the house. I picked up a small single speaker that plugs into my 'puter earphone outlet and also works with Seahags (my lovely wife) cell phone. Sounds great and I have no problem picking out bass lines on it. Think I paid around $80 for it. I can also plug it into my crap Wall-Mart radio that I take to work.

    IMHO you don't need to pay more than $100. Just find something with a subwoofer and that is all you really need.
