I paid $95.00 for this model at the last computer show here in Florida and was very satisfied with the the price. Now, I found out that the price has dropped to $65.00 that makes this model a super deal.
Update: February 25, 1999, pricing at the last two computer shows is between $39 to $50. An excellent bargin.
All I needed to do was play some QuakeII, Forsaken, and Unreal to make my decision. I was amazed at how well these speakers performed compared to anything I have heard at this price level.
Radio Shack offers the same speakers, both the satelites and subwoofer, at a much higher price. The last time I checked the satilites alone were selling for $79 (US).
While not able to produce the power levels of my homebrew sound system it's a close second.
