If you are into quality speakers without looking deep into your pockets, look no further. Altec Lansing has just released the latest MX5021-THX 2.1 Speaker System. If you don't know what the fuss is about THX, it's a sound qualifying standard developed by well known Star Wars director, George Lucas. He's a fuzzy guy to sound, so if something is THX certified, it means its pretty good! The MX5021 speaker system gives out 90 Watts RMS of sound power, with the sub-woofer rated at 50Watts and the satellite speakers 20Watts each. The satellites are magnetically shielded, however the subwoofer is not. It's highly unlikely that you would put a subwoofer close to a CRT monitor anyways. So, this is definately a good buy.
