the Logitech ZD5500s have a mic and headphone socket on the control pod. They also sound great and have surround sound plus a Dolby Digital/DTS decoder. £200 or so I believe

Logitech do a large range of deskto speakers ranging from about £30-200. Any of those sets would probably do for your needs. However be aware that the more expensive sets have loud, boomy subwoofers, which can frequently upset neighbours! The lower range speakers can sound surprisingly good for what you pay for them, look for a set of X-230's or similar if you're after a more wallet friendly set!

Then i say logitech's midrange 2.1 systems are probably what you're after. By no means audiophile equipment, but the best 'PC speakers' i know of. Could you specify a budget? These days, with the logitech z5500 at £200, 'midrange' speakers could range from anywhere between £20-100...Acoustic Energy make a very nice 2.1 speaker system which can be picked up for £90. If this is above your price range, the logitech x-230's or the newer model x-240 will suit your needs. Try ebay, you can find some good deals on new sets.

the X-240 Speakers are nice but need mic and headset socket on the front of the speakers. . currently have to reach round back of the machine to plug anything in.

I can highly recommend the Gigaworks T20. Got mine from PCworld ordered online with instore collection, was cheaper than any other online retailer.

yeah they look nice and they do have headset and mic port on front.

Yea ports at front and input on back too. Quite handy as i have my laptop in one port and xbox in another. Just noticed they are £46.99 at overclockers just now. £53 web exclusive at pc world with collect instore.

I am very impressed with them.
