I found this at Musician's Friend [musiciansfriend.com] and is definitely at a great price!

Remember there are also cashback for Musician's friend or Guitar Center, which ever you choose! Just Google it!

I checked on Amazon and they are selling for $171.64 + shipping and eBay found it for $79 + shipping. I read a lot of reviews about this item and they are a pretty good piece to own for a small studio. Thumbs up if you like it!

Free Shipping on Orders Over $25!

Update: Changed to Musician's Friend instead of Guitar Center. Less hassle since their free shipping policy is orders over $25. Thanks Fiire and Shnitz for your comments!

So you're saying that if prices were the same, these Alesis would be a better value than the T40? I really liked the T20 I snagged on clearance for $30 years back, except they had too much bass for the rooms near mine. I was really surprised by the volume the T20 put out without noticeable distortion. (clarification: I gave the T20 to family)
better in terms of clarity, the creative speakers has good mid range, but its quite color to make things sounds good.

Is this an upgrade to computer speakers or not? I mainly watch movies on Netflix.
Yes, it is an upgrade... albeit not a huge one. Of course it depends on the quality if the computer speakers you are using now... If they were $20 to $30 then these are a good upgrade.

However, these are not really very good for monitors (music production) since they are low end relative to those... but that does not matter for you since that is not your intended use.

Speakers are tricky and everyone has their preferences... so you really would need to hear them for yourself to be sure they are better than what you have.

For my tastes I would buy a set of Dell 5650 Computer Speakers on Ebay for about the same cost (or less). They are great for watching movies, etc.

Just my opinion but I think the whole "break-in" thing is BS for modern speakers. There's no evidence that soundchanges after a certain period of use. I don't know why otherwise rational-minded people insist on a "break-in" period when we have devices that actually measure frequency response and don't show any difference.
haha break in drivers ..totally amazing what they think .. you cant teach stupid .. hope they dont vote.

these are actually pretty good i own a pair.

Speakers (and headphones) are diaphragms that need to loosen up to sound their best. No real mystery here...

Would be all over these if I didn't have 5 extra sets of Klipsch Promedia 2.1s just sitting in the garage (bought 'em cheap - $20/set from some Russian dude - and fixed the amps).

That author draws sweeping conclusions based on measurements of only two bare drivers that exhibited relatively little change in their mechanical compliance. And most of his assumptions are based on enclosure simulations derived from those small changes in compliance, not actual measurements of in-cabinet responses. Here's a different set of actual before/after bare driver measurements that exhibited greater compliance changes, and thus would have produced more substantial changes in enclosure simulations: http://www.vikash.info/audio/audax/. (That author didn't do enclosure sims or actual in-cabinet measurements.)

But why doesn't anybody do the obvious test of basic frequency response measurements of completed speakers (drivers in cabinets) before/after break-in?

Do I need to hook these up to a receiver? Or I can I just hook them up to the audio out from my TV?

They take rca in, so if you have a pair of rca cables and rca out from your tv, you're set.

Just got a set from MF. Intended to buy from Guitar Center cause the local store had in stock but as of this morning they went back up to $99. Site still shows $49 but at checkout the price goes up. I called and they said its a website error and the $99 is the correct price now. Went to MF right after and was able to get for the $49 though.
