Suggestions for room audio

by butterfingarz / December 24, 2008 8:27 AM PST

I am looking to purchase some sort of stereo or speakers for my room. Right now I an old aiwa that that supplies 40w rms to two speakers plus two satellites that I just rest on top of the speakers. The only downside to this stereo is that it is large and makes my room feel cluttered.

I am looking for a stereo with around the same sound performance in a smaller package. I have been looking at 2.1, 5.1, and iHome type stereos but can not decide. I not need a radio or alarm since I use my iPhone for that and I do not necessarily need to connect it because I use my computer for that and my phone as a remote. I like the size of some of the iHome products but would like a little better sound quality and power. But that then requires a sub which takes up alot of space. I do not use my stereo now very much so I cant see spending close to 300 for a 5.1 system and is kinda overkill for a room. So what would anyone suggest for me??? Thanks for any help you may have.
