    I'm not after the sort of thing you'd find in the window of Richer sounds. I'll say that first.

    My last set of speakers were Logitech Z10's which I was happy with but the screen used to get insanely hot and stopped responding to touch input and they ended up just wearing out and dying one day.


    I'm not in line to spend more than £100.

    Not enough room for a 5.1 system or a system with anything big and boxy like a sub.

    I indulge in the following activities:
    Gaming
    Listening to music
    Watching films/Tv
    Touch of video and audio editing


    Bit-tech's current lot on the reviews pages seem to be either "Yeah, these are crap" or "TOTALLY AWESOME....but they cost £450".


    I've had a peak at these - Thoughts?

    I've had the original t20s for a good few years now and noe complaints. Not sure how much better the newer ones and t40s are, but I imagine jjust a bit louder/better bass due to the port.

    I'm only just gettingsome logitech x-540s to replace them because I want 5.1, but I would definately go with the creative over 2.1s. plenty of bass for music unless you think louder bass means better.

    I have the T40's and for general 2.0 PC speakers in that price range they are pretty good and I'd recommend. What kind of audio editing? as you may be better off finding a pair of powered monitors for a flatter response (though probably not in your price range).

    Perhaps the M-Audio Studiophile AV40s would work? I can't say I've listened to them myself, but they should be better than most in this price range when it comes to audio editing. Tom's Hardware seem to think fairly highly of them at any rate, though if the last sentence is anything to go by, they can't have tested many speakers:

    JBL Creature 2's? I'm on my phone, so can't link, sorry. My mate has a pair of these. Seem like a good buy at the £69 he paid for them. Look pretty cool too (subjective).

    Got a pair of these myself. They are pretty good, if a bit lacking in mid ranges in my experience.
