@honda6 - Curious if you have heard, or plan to review the Sony SS-CS5 speakers? When on-sale at Amazon, they are $88 (currently $168). I purchased a pair when they went on sale around Christmas time. They are very good for the $88 sale price. Considering you've auditioned a lot of budget components, it would be great to get your opinion of them.
Curious, what did you pay for the Amazon Basic Speakers? I see they are currently $99, but I see references in the product reviews on Amazon mentioning a price of $33. Big difference between $33 and $99. Curious about the price/performance consideration for your review.
Thanks for what you do! Having some actual user reviews of budget components is very helpful to budget conscious buyers.
