Wow I guess now if you add the item to your cart it doesn't reserve it for you until you check out. I only wanted the black and by the time I checked out it was unavailable.

As of right now the Amazon app still shows the green Q701 available for $160.

Went for them, do I need these? Do I need any more gear? To paraphrase the great Tina Turner(which I have done a number of times,sorry),"What's need got to do with it?"

Thanks, phillyd.  I'll have a look now.  I did a ton of reading yesterday getting educated on these systems.  I'm fairly confident I want a 2.1 to provide a sub so my 15-yr old can get his fix of bass.  Somewhat narrowed down to either the Klipsch Promedia 2.1 or the Swan M50W (double the price but looks to be much better quality and way more flexibility to set it up differently...other inputs, etc...).  Dang this is tough...

 

This place is gonna leave me broke  :D

please, please, please do yourself a favor and get a real setup (i.e., not driven speakers). the sound is SO much better with separate amp+speakers, and you can always add a preamp/sub or upgrade the amp/speakers later on.

Ya guys are killin' me....LOL.  So this is a setup that's just for the iMac in my wife's computer room that happens to be just off the kitchen where I spend a fair amount of time.  Mostly, I'll jam with the cans on since she doesn't do well with the louder stuff and perhaps some of my music choices. 

 

I was thinking of perhaps getting the Audioengine D3 or the Dragonfly for the Mac or my Mac Air, but was thinking the the Swan M50W's would be Pee-lenty of sound for that small room (think small computer room that shares the pantry (dry food stuffs) and then continues on to our small laundry room w/ spare refrigerator.  Call it a room that's 8ft by 8ft or something like that.  It's not my primary audio system.

 

Am I missing something here?  I'm not hardcore like a lot of you guys I'm learning from.

There's nothing wrong with what you're buying/trying to accomplish. Some people are just under the opinion that having a fully modular set instead of a all-in-one type deal is the superior option. It all comes down to if you think you're going to be happy with what you get or you're going to want to go upgrade crazy.
