Bookshelf Speakers: Bose 21's maybe?
Hoping to keep the whole setup under $250.
anything but Bose. really.
No Bose? How come? What are some good bookshelf speakers?
Bose = overpriced yuppie design CRAP. I had one of their high-end speaker sets for a brief while, but even their sentimental value (they were my grandmother's) couldn't keep them in my apartment. Effing lifeless for anything beyond classical chamber music.
I'm sure motorbike guy has way more suggestions than me, but here's what I've heard and liked in the past, and assume/think you can get fairly cheap on craigslist or ebay. (Whooah, nice run-on sentence there Mart.)
Audioengine A2 (note: active speakers)
Monitor Audio (British, so might not be that ubiquitous in the US)
And a friend just bought these for his office and is very pleased so far:http://www.amazon.com/Pioneer-SP-BS41-L ... B0045US6DE
