My wife has allowed me to purchase a G5 and 23" monitor.

I'm looking for a 2.1 speaker system that goes well with the G5 but is less than $200.

Currently I own the Logitech Z560 4.1 Speakers (http://www.avault.com/hardware/getreview.asp?review=logiz560). However, these have wayyyy too much bass for what i need.

Apple sells the new Altec Lansing FX6021 2.1 set (http://store.apple.com/1-800-MY-APPLE/WebObjects/AppleStore.woa/71206/wo/4BiFGY0KOajz2Q36BEB1UWswXAh/2.3.0.6.10) at a whopping $299. :eek:
However, they match the brushed metal look of the g5 and sound decent.

What would you get for a 2.1 set for less than $200? Or are teh FX6021's worth the cash? :confused:

All 3 look good, but the Sicuro seem to be the best, they use a 360 degree speaker design (down firing onto a cone) and a front fire sub. Should sound good for 99% of applications...
