    These are the best alternatives for 2.1

    I got my brother a set of Z-2300's for Christmas last year to hook up on his imac. :bigthumb:

    Seconded for the SoundStick II's.

    I have a set and they sound amazing. But only if you have the sub properly positioned. They are incredibly crisp and the base is deep.

    I bought mine used of Amazon about 3 years ago for $120.

    wow, everything posted thus far is crap.


    KRK Rockit 10 sub
    Yamaha HS50M studio monitors
    M-Audio FW-410

    awsome setup, and I know this, because I have it.

    The OP needs to say price-range.

    I run KRK Rockit 5 monitors, which own any of the above (except for P07r0457's)
