Originally $179.99 these bookshelf speakers are 67% off and now $59.00

Here's the link [newegg.com]

Reviews are positive overall but some people suggest the addition of a subwoofer if you want deeper bass.

Enjoy Peace

@MiralM5973 - these are "passive" speakers. You cannot use them with out a separate amplifier. The logitech speakers you're considering have one built in. There are small, affordable desktop amps you could get to sit between your PC and these speakers but chances are pretty good you'll be just as happy with the simpler powered speakers from Logitech.
These would be a very good choice! Pair them with a small amp like this one.

Lepai also makes good mini amps. You will end up with a system that will beat just about anything billed specifically as "computer speakers" and at half the price of so called high end computer speakers. You could also get a pair of powered or "active" speakers, but in my opinion this would be a far superior option. The set up I suggest will handily beat the Logitrchs.

Would these be a good set of speakers for a computer? I have a small bedroom that these would go in. I was also thinking to get the Logitech z623. How do these compare?

I used to work for an electronics store, and I wasn't a salesman, but testing out the speakers side by side with various brands, I preferred the CB10 over the rest for music. They had good bass and clarity without a subwoofer. So for the price, I'd say these are going to be very good if you're wanting to listen to music on them. They're a Klipsch company.

I have these as rear surround speakers with Energy RC-10 and RC mini middle up front for an office 5.1 setup. For non Audiofiles add a Dayton or Monoprice sub and you will have a respectable stereo music set up for under $200 (Receiver required as well)

Unfortunately they WERE a Klipsch company (owned by Audiovox) They killed off Energy and Mirage speaker lines years ago. I guess they retain the name rights and technically could bring them back. I suspect these CB-5's were manufactured 5 or more years ago.

A receiver would bump that overall price up to at least $400 if you're lucky.

I did say Receiver required as well, so yes, there is no work around. Yet some may already have one and want to upgrade from some crappy little satellite speakers.

I think it's easier to just get a set of powered speakers. I recently grabbed the Vanatoo Transparent 0s and they are doing a great job - a big upgrade over the Klipsch Promedia 2.1 set I used for a decade.

I have had the Logitech z623 set up for at least 5 years. It is a fantastic set up and I would highly recommend them.

Why in earth would anyone connect a reciever to a computer? What they needs is a small amplifier.

Because I have the desk space and I've picked up nice Denon and onykos for $40 or less locally.
