Portable mini speakers?
Posted by: mspace

Hello helpful ones,

I tend to use my tibook (soon to be replaced, I hope) as a desktop at home. I decided that I really need some outside speakers for files that are just too low in volume to hear with the cover closed.

I have extremely little space to put anything, so I have been looking at the smallest mini speakers. While I do care about audio fidelity, I know I'm not going to get amazing at this size or budget (low).

I'm seeing models with iPod docks, which is also unneeded. I just need speakers.

Does anyone have any recommendationds of product and/or companies?

What about these?

I also got a great deal on the JBL OnTour speakers, and they're much nicer than I thought. The volume is good, and the sound is quite acceptable.

But for a "desktop" situation, I'd get something with separate speakers, to improve imaging, particularly at distances greater than arms' length.

For $50-$75 you can find the HK Creatures. Sound is very good, room-filling, and the foot print is very small.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'm willling to hear more.

Based on the Logitech V20 idea, I found the Altech Lansing XT1. It actually has better reviews than the newer XT2.

Anyone have opinions on the Altec?
