Help me get some powered, 2.1 speakers with an auxillary input for ~$200.
So about a year ago, I bought a pair of Logitech Z523
speakers, on sale. They replaced my old Harman-Kardons which were completely blown. Long story short, they're crap. The sound quality is fine, but there's a number of structural defects -- the biggest one being that the sub manages to shake its own connection out of flush and constantly cause a buzzing or clicking -- and I want new speakers.
One of my favorite features of the Z523s was that they had an auxillary line input. So they could be plugged into my PS3 and my PC (or an iPod during parties) simultaneously. I don't want to give up this feature. I'm not sure if this can be replicated with a splitter and a converter, so if it can, that's fine.
So what are some good options in the $200 range? I'd get a 5.1 system, but the setup of my living room would make wiring the side-speakers a huge hassle and I haven't seen anything wireless in my price range (if there is, I'd love to see it.) I also looked at soundbars, but I really don't know anything about them and they all seem very expensive. I'm no audiophile, and I use these to watch TV/movies via Netflix Instant and play PS3 games more than anything.
