Are these any good? i'm looking for something above the Logitech's.
They have great reviews on Amazon, but so did Amy Schumers last stand-up special :p (YES I have trust issues)
TIA for any feedback
I refuse to argue with idiots, because people can't tell the DIFFERENCE!

    You could get the Polk TL3's. That's what I have for my pc, they sound great.

    Those are conventional speakers. The ones I'm referencing are powered speakers, that plug directly into the headphone jack on a PC. If PA made these style, I'd buy 'em :)
    I'm trying to avoid DAC/ external sound card, recvr, etc.
    I've already got that set up on main rig in living room, this is just a simple PC for learning MS office, etc.

    Klipsch makes a pair... And Polk slapped their name on many a powered pair for HP... Troll Craigslist or let-go for computer speakers, they're everywhere.

    I used to run the Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 system...dumped it recently for a pair of RTiA3s, PSW108 with a NAD C326BEE controlling it, Sadly the powered speaker market leaves a bit to be desired as far as I'm concerned and yeah the A3/NAD combo sounds better than one would think.

    I have these edifiers in my living room

    Girlfriend has her TT hooked up to it, we have the speakers on 24 inch speaker stands. I’m actually really shocked how good these sound. The bass is impressive, and they fill our living room with sound no problem.

    Remote works great, Bluetooth hooks up without a hitch. And I think they have a 3 year warranty? For the money they are awesome, on a desktop I think they would do really well. They have tone controls which is nice, because they are a tad bass heavy.
