Swan M200 Mark II or original version. Can be found at: www.theaudioinsider.com. Best computer speakers on the planet. This is a High end product and dont be fooled. It also can be used for any audio source with RCAs out as set top cable tv box, cd player, dvd player or a TV. I have a pair hooked up to my small bedroom system. Sounds fantastic, clean with power. Has the amp, preamp and speaker into one. This is all you need and hook it up right to TV without having a lot of audio boxes laying around. Another option is go with a soundbar.
For the money A-5's are a great value. A (significant) step up would be the Quad 12L's actives. However, these are two to three times the price (used). With the Quads you also have to spend on long RCA cables, since you need to provide each speaker with its own line level signal. In all fairness, the Quads are on a different league, both in sound and appearance. Just my $.02 since I have a pair of both.
