yea.. the reason im getting rid of my swanspeaker is because of that bulky square stuff (subwoofer)...and normally i turn bass to minimal also..thinking of getting something simple and less clutter

Youtube is your best friend.
yea. gonna read some review and decide =). creative pebble and edifier r190u seems recommended by pcworld...

woah. this speaker is cheap! how does it fare? not really audiophile person...but as long no interference and does it job and last lasting, then its good
For $20... it's ok. I guess not the clearest sound, but decent. Can get quite loud, enough to fill a whole room, without breaking up too much. If you don't plan to fill a whole room with it, it's fine.

As for the bass, can't fight with creative T20/T40 of course

Wow the creative stage sound bar looks pretty good actually. It's so new that I can't even find reviews on it. It seems like it is basically a huge portable speaker that can double as a desktop speaker if you leave it plugged in.
Will be keeping an eye out for it!

out of stock on lazada, shopee, qoo10

But they did jack up the price from 25 to 30/40 after i attempt to purchase it and then was told it was OOS. if it's OOS why did they jack up the price and still list it up as got stock? HMMMM
