Which PC speakers?

Hey guys been playing a few years and spend a great deal of time each day listening to music from my pc.

Currently i have a cheap 2.1 system i have had for years which isnt very good at high volumes. I am looking to buy a line 6 pod and a faster pc and start doing some basic home recording and editing etc.

I am looking to spend up to 100 (yes i know it is'nt much). I am debating weather i go for 2.1 or 2.0. Also what sort of things im looking for and things i want to avoid.

I want something that is going to produce high quality clear sound for me to play along to and to do some basic recording too.

Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer!!!

Re: Which PC speakers?

Find some decent studio monitors, and stay away from PC speakers.
PC speakers are fine for listening to movies, music and games--but just don't cut it for guitar playing.

You might be able to find some used KRK monitors in your budget. Great speakers for the price!

I have a pair of M-Audio BX5s that have been my main monitors for the last seven years. You could probably pick up a second hand pair for under a hundred notes.

Look at the specs and see if they will do what you want.
Frequency range should be considered. If they are similar, but one has a broader range--get that pair.
