    Best 2.1/2.0 speaker

    Hi all... I'm looking for a 2.1 or 2.0(Book shelf) speaker below 4k in India that will come around $60- $70 .... I'm a music composer and I need a speaker which outputs the sounds perfectly like a studio monitor....I'm living in a rented apartment with not so big rooms, so too much power like the Altec lansing mx6021 will be a waste of money I guess.... I just want a clear sound that's it... shall I go with the Altec VS4121? Any reviews about it?

    i was just gonna tell you to look at altec lansing speakers but it seems you're already on to them. i dont know what the current models are because my pair of 2.1 altec speakers have lasted me 8 years! there's also the creative gigaworks T20 / T40 ones, but you should check reviews.

    perhaps some audio magazines / websites could give you some info? normal speakers tend to add bass whereas proper audio monitors give you a clearer reproduction

    I will check if they are available in local stores... But they seems to be expensive than the ALtec speakers... The Edifier M1300 a 6+2x2 W where as altec Vs4221 is 19+6x2 W... both are having almost the same price...

    Yes I have those and they are great for the price.

    I would say they are one step below HiFi quality, which is very good for computer speakers. Go for it

    And the sub-woofer is great.

    I daresay in this class the BA635 will oust all other systems when it comes to accurate reproduction and clarity.

    Bad news is you can only get them used, since they've been discontinued.
    Eternally confused.

    Just a note, sarin... yes, you should get a good pair of speakers to check what things would sound like over a car stereo or a portable stereo (boom box) but for absolute clarity in monitoring the mix and soundstage you should invest in a decent pair of headphones, ones that are NOT overly bass heavy. If you play a synthesizer from bottom to top and certain notes stick out, move on to another set of speakers or headphones.

    +1

    $50 headphones can have as good quality as $500 speakers.
