Nice!

The audioengine HD3 looks pretty good. 2.0 with Bluetooth.

Always liked JimsReviewRoom videos:

Any recommendation for replacing Creative Gigaworks T20?
Would prefer a 2.0 speakers.

My current T20 is the very old first gen speakers, while still working now, it is giving out crackling sound when turning the volume knob.
The sound will suddenly cut off when playing music above certain the volume, and only works when switching it off and on again.

It's AMP might have died, usually this sort of speaker means
change the right speaker.
I also have a T20 II but for bass heavy users like myself I rather
get 2.1 speaker instead.

Budget and any space constraints?

thank you kind sir. you just saved me the trouble of having to bring the whole sub to a shop for repairs.

now..just pray I don't destroy it with my non-trained hands.

edit: any place I can get them? didn't really find much results from searching google.

budget below $200, space ideally similar to T20, slightly bigger is ok.
Thanks!

Hi guys, glad to have found this thread as I am looking for a 2.0/2.1 speaker right now. Budget wise I give myself around $100 to 120.

Been eyeing on the creative T40 @$129. Is there any speaker that is good and cheaper than that? My purpose of PC speaker is just for light gaming and videos. As I already have a hyperX cloud 2, I dont really wanna spend so much on a speaker. But of course, I also dont wanna buy a cheap one which provides mediocre sound quality.

At the same time, I am also wondering if i am getting the T40, might as well get a razer leviathan from carosell @~$200(dunno why some seller can mark their price so cheap when the original leviathan cost around $329 from the official razer store.)

Thanks for your input in advanced guys!
