please don't break my heart and buy this ****....
i'll be honest and say i think that the folks lauding their pc-speakers just dont' know what the **** they're talking about when it comes to audio, maybe have never heard a good, real setup
hell, i have some polk r50's with my t-amp, they're very cheap, but they're real speakers; i'm sure you can do better with $200, i'm not particular into the polk's, but just to say: there are plenty of options for you with bookshelves, especially used (don't be scared
) without resorting to god-awful computer-speaker setups
some modern-ish favorites are axiom's, paradigm atom and titans, even athenas; you can probably do better if you know what you're looking for with older and vintage stuff, but you need to make sure that you get reasonably efficient speakers for the t-amp, 90db would be nice, but generally you don't want below 87db or so
you know, i don't know why i bother; i'm sure you'll be scared of the big-bad used market with scary people and go to newegg and buy something with 4-stars and come back and say "a great startup system" and i'll die a little bit inside
