Cambridge Soundworks ( http://www.cambridgesoundworks.com/ ) is
reportedly among the best you can get for home audio systems in
terms of price/performance: excellent quality PC speaker packages
starting from $100 or so.
After looking around their web site and visiting a local store, I
decided to treat myself to their best "multimedia" system, the
"DeskTop Theater 5.1 DDT2500 Digital", for about $300.
PCs for Everyone ( http://www.pcsforeveryone.com/ ) has it for $279,
but I decided to buy directly from Cambridge Soundworks since PCs
for Everyone is closed tomorrow and I might get slightly better
support by buying it directly from the manufacturer.
But I just noticed hifi.com (affiliated with cambridge soundworks
somehow) sells it for $299, minus $25 for opening a new account
with them, AND they throw in a free DVD player (Samsung DVD-709,
selling for $220), and ship it all for free! What a great deal!
Here are a few more details on the speaker system:

Connect DTT2500 to a TV and DVD player in a den or bedroom,
and you have a great little home theater surround sound
system. Hook it up to a DVD-equipped PC and you have an
incredible "WOW!" multimedia sound system.
Cambridge SoundWorks DeskTop Theater DTT2500 is an all-in-one
Dolby Digital surround sound system. It has everything you
need to enjoy incredible, digital surround sound. Just plug
it into your PC or your TV/DVD* combination and let 'er rip.
The five satellite cube speakers are so compact, they'll fit
just about anywhere. They even come with a velcro kit that
lets you attach them to your walls or the side of the TV or
computer monitor. But don't let their small size fool you -
they sound terrific. They have smooth, accurate tonal balance
and will play loud enough to fill a small to medium-sized
room. The powered subwoofer is great! It produces bass notes
with impact and realism. The system does a very good job of
reproducing both music and movie soundtracks.
The control amplifier includes a Dolby Digital Processor,
Dolby Pro Logic surround sound, and Creative Multi-Speaker
Surround - which gives you convincing surround sound even
when you're using stereo or mono sound sources. DeskTop
Theater 2500 sounds great when you watch older movies or when
you listen to music CDs. The amplifier has a coax (SPDF)
connector for 5.1 digital sound input from a DVD player, plus
it has analog audio inputs for use with computer game sound
or with VCR stereo sound.
At Hifi.com, we're proud to offer the country this remarkably
affordable Dolby Digital surround sound package. For less
than the price of most Dolby Digital receivers alone, you can
now own a complete system that sounds really terrific.
