"It's time to focus on basic PC audio with a two-channel speaker roundup. We look at the Altec Lansing Expressionist Bass FX3022, Bowers & Wilkins MM-1, Creative Gigaworks T40 Series II, and M-Audio Studiophile AV 40 to see what these systems can offer. Human beings come factory-equipped with five senses. Taste and smell are effectively ignored when it comes to PC technology (Ed.: unless you really screwed up an overclock, in which case your sense of smell might be assailed), and touch typically plays a limited role in interfacing with peripherals like keyboards and mice."
Jason recently linked to a comprehensive speaker review by Tom's Hardware for 2.1 speakers, and mentioned that he doesn't have subwoofers in his setup. Tom's Hardsware have now release another speaker review, but this time for those who don't need or want a subwoofer and just require good quality sound from the speakers on the desk. While I currently do have 2.1 speakers and a subwoofer on the floor, I am looking to replace this with ones without one as I look to relocate the PC and desk to a different area in the house, so this article has arrived at exactly the right time for me.
