Shopping for tech products has become incredibly hard. Good brands are bad, bad brands are good, and there are a million options for everything including low priced gems and high priced garbage!
I have a lovely new basement home-office and I'm ready to retire the 3 inch pair of 20 year old speakers for something new. I'm getting a relatively narrow desk at 47 inches and I expect my 2 side by side monitors will take up 50... that leaves no space for speakers on either side, so what about a sound bar?
A short pair of speakers would work too. The monitors will be mounted on arms that are height adjustable so 3-5 inches beneath them is reasonable.
I'm thinking the $80 - $150 range. I dont need any bells and whistles really, just good sounding 2.1 system.
