I have recently embraced a love of background music in my bedroom. I use it with a romantic playlist when I am enjoying time with my wife. However the only speakers I had that I could move into the bedroom were my Fostex PM0.4N monitors. They work and sound fantastic except for the fact that they take up my entire nightstand and look like something from a college dorm, which definitely detracts from the romantic atmosphere. They are also being deeply underused in the bedroom and I miss listening to them in my living room. I love my speakers to death and the sound signature is perfect for me, but I would really like to find something small, unobtrusive, and inexpensive to use in my bedroom instead. Ideally something that I can place on the dresser for better sound positioning and can fill a room with low volume background music.
The Audioengine A2's would probably be perfect except for they are out of my price range at the moment. I would like decent sound quality since I will notice it, but it doesn't need to be perfect since I will be doing any critical listening on the Fostex's or my headphones. The smaller and less obtrusive the better. They don't need to get loud, as it would be rather awkward to wake my daughter. I would like to see if there are any decent recommendations for something well under $100, as I am limited on funds.
I don't need pounding bass but I would like a bit of extension on bottom and decent clarity up top from any choices.
I plan on using these with an Ipod touch or a cellphone as the source so they need to be active speakers.
