Best all around speakers
My vote is for a design incorporating Open Baffel and Waveguide (horn). Having +/- 400 hrs on a pair of Emerald Physics CS-2's, I can honestly say I have not heard a more accurate, revealing, live-sounding, and dynamic pair of speakers.The open ba... 
Help needed: speakers for desktop
I have used a small (the smallest,I don't remember the model name/number) pair of Opera speakers for just what you are talking about. They were wonderful in the mids & highs, but you will need a sub if you want to move the pencils around on yo... 
power conditioner with off switch

Emerald Physics CS-2, Opinions Please
Thanks for laughing, I was/am trying to use humor, probably to avoid conflict, maybe just because most of the discussions in this and other forums strike me as humorous. With all of the big brains out there you would think there would be one speak...
