Well I dont have any of these computer speakers but I have connected comp to my 7000 watts Panasonic system. The output is enough to shake my cupboards and window panes.

Harmon Kardon Soundsticks II
Quite possibly the best 2.1 computer speakers in the market

My home desktop has a 2.1 setup (forgot the brand)

using sony xd-200 currently with my compaq R4000

may get a pair of high-end sennheisers/grado/bose triport/akg

firt choice certainly would be the senns. hd212 are pure techno manna.

Iv got a pair of JBL platinum pro speakers for one comp. and a creative 5.1 for the other. And I prefer the JBL over the creative ones anyday!
Not a crackle from them after even years and years of heavy usage!

Godspeed.

Alok.

im using the creative inspire 5200 5.1 spkr system...
6 watts RMS per channel and 20 watts RMS to the sub..

hooked it up to my laptop through a Creative SoundBlaster Audigy2 NX (USB).. its a 24bit soundcard with analog, digital, S/P DIF & Optical outputs along with an Optical input... Supports a 7.1 spkr config...

my soundcard makes a huge difference... considering its got a 102db SNR ratio...
