I know that monoprice is a highly reccomended for their cheap headphones, but I was wondering about their bookshelve speakers. I listen to all kinds of music, so I'd want them to be fairly well rounded.
 
Heres the link:

How would these compare to these:

http://www.amazon.com/Dayton-B652-2-Inch-Bookshelf-Speaker/dp/B002RMPHMU/ref=pd_sim_sbs_pc_1
http://www.amazon.com/Sony-SS-B1000-4-Inch-Bookshelf-Speakers/dp/B000OG88KY/ref=pd_sim_sbs_pc_11
 
I know almost nothing about speakers so please answer clearly!
 
These will be used at a desk with a macbook pro and an iPod Touch 5G.
 
Also, I don't want to spend much on amps, but is there a specific one that you think would go well with these?
 
Thank You for any response you can provide!

I haven't heard them, but the Dayton's are the ones that get recommended, along with the Lepai (check Amazon for that, too): http://news.cnet.com/8301-13645_3-57439115-47/build-your-own-desktop-stereo-for-under-$70/

That combination will be better than any $100 computer desktop speakers. I have tried the Lepai with a few different speakers, and it works amazingly well for around $20. Best bet from there if you want better amplification is to look for a used receiver on Craigslist.

If you like bass heavy music, a nice addition to that is one of the Dayton subs (through Parts Express).
