I'm looking for a good deal on z-5500s. Do you think I should wait for some good deals from dell or should I just buy them from newegg? What i'm really looking for is z-5500s under $270 w/ decent shipping included.(none of those UPS ground dealies)

well 46 dollars for standard ground shipping. This ends up costing the same price as the newegg one. Rebates are a pain in the ass.

AV123: Rocket ELT PBS tower bookshelfs $299 + S/H (a pair)

- Each have their own powered 8" woofer w/150watt amp built-into the stand
- They resemble floorstanders but they are actually hybrid bookshelfs of some sort
- Available in 4 colors

http://www.av123.com/products_product.php?section=speakers&product=56.1

I believe these are discontinued so if you had your heart set on them...get em now ;)

What they are is a speaker stand with a subwoofer built in. Basically, you set your bookshelf on the stand, connect them to the level inputs, and then to the receiver. Voila, you've basically have floorstanding bookshelfs with extra bass.

Not a bad deal, really...

Well, when you think about it, they allow you to turn your bookshelf's into much more expensive speakers, so it's still a sweet deal.

HD201's atm probably, people compare them favorably to the HD497's, and many seem to like them better than the HD202's. I can't say for sure since i've never owned the 201's but it seems to have a growing number of fans.

If you are willing to spend $50 though there are better headphones, just not sure what to recommend (?)
