    Recommend some 2.0 speakers?

    I have a old, huge, boxy 5.1 speaker system connected to my PC. I don't really have room for it and I want to get rid of it and replace it with smaller set of speakers.

    I'm looking for a small set of 2.0 speakers that sound good and are not too pricey. Can anyone recommend me a set (preferably a set that can be purchased from eBuyer as I have a free next day delivery voucher! )

    I don't know if eBuyer does anything similar but these are my favourite speakers at the moment -

    Active Speakers : PC 2.0 Speakers : Maplin

    We use them with all our IWB's.

    We swear by the Creative Gigaworks T20 speakers, but it depends what you class as pricey. They do classroom duties in many areas of the school here, and are very impressive.

    Logitech x-140: Logitech X-140 Black 2.0 PC multimedia speakers - 5W RMS - Ebuyer

    surprisingly good quality for the price and wattage output.

    I got a pair of those, but they seem to distort unless all dials are set to what I perceive to be full!

    I too love those speakers, they sound really good for the money... but I bought three sets, one for me, one for my wife and one for her sister. After 3 years none of them worked
