I'm using SoundSticks II. They could use a little more bass, but in all sound pretty good. I've never heard of the particular model you are looking at, but Klipsch makes good stuff.

I'm using Logitech Z-3 speakers. They're excellent for the price, and the aluminum finish matches the mini pretty well. Bass is stong on the system. Almost too strong on my hardwood floor. The cables could stand to be a bit longer, though.

Im using Logitech z-340s.
They are of course hidden so it leaves the desktop uncluttered.

Logitech speakers are much improved ever since they bought Labtec a few years ago.

I bought some JBL Creature II's on eBay. The satellites sound a bit tinny and hollow but the subwoofer has some kick.

I'm using the creature speakers too. I love 'em. Though I wish someone would create a pair of mini speakers to match the mini as I bought the Mini to safe space and the creature takes up too much space.

I'm using the beautiful Epos M22 tri-wireable speaker with my mini. All Amplification is handled by Linn.

My speakers will be arriving today, 06/01/05 ... I'll post some thoughts once they are here. Wink

Update: They arrived before 12 o' clock. I'm no audiophile but the sound seems clear & crisp to these ears (highs and lows). Worth every penny I spent! Smile
Decided on these from the reviews I had read online (at The Apple Store).

You should never spend more on an audio cable for the computer than you do for the computer. There is just something wrong with that.

Well i beg to differ my friend! The sound is only as good as the weakest link! If the cable is naff then that will be the limiting factor on the sound.

Also my preamp has like 9 outs of which the computer is but one! So there are several sources connected to my hifi system!
