I'm looking for a quality pair of speakers or 2.1 speakers. I use headphones most of the time, but when people are in the office I would like to have quality sound coming out instead of the built in speakers.

I really haven't set a budget, but probably under $1000.00. I would think there's something out there for this amount or less that would have quality sound.

Jim,

My studio monitors are powered Event Opals for $3K a pair. That's quality sound.

I also use this bose system with my laptop and have been very happy. http://tinyurl.com/yl6phej

Sound field is nicely diffuse and "surroundy" with the right sources. It's a USB connection to the computer or the mini 1/8" TRS jack if you're not using USB.

Regards,

Ty Ford

I almost bought that very Bose setup yesterday. I have a Bose sound docking station as well as their headphones. I have no complaints on either. I really like the control feature and head phone plug in for the Bose that you mentioned.

Small speakers, powered, decent, cheap: M Audio StudioPro

Small speakers, powered, really great, with sub, more expensive: Blue Sky Media Desk 2.1

I have experience with both and the Blue Skys sound amazing, the M-Audios are decent. Quite a bang for the buck either way.

Monitors are like politics -everyone has an opinion.

My opinion is the best value is the KRK line. Even the budget series sound accurate, and the VXT are really sweet (for the money). I've got a pair right beside my Genelec 8050s and they hold up well.

Thanks Craig,

There are others, of course, but I'm sure Chuck Surack @ Sweetwater appreciates the mention.

Ty
