    Speaker Suggestions ?


    Want to purchase a pair of "small" desktop speakers for my desktop pc.
    One to go on each side of monitor.

    Don't want a woofer.

    But, am hard of hearing, so would need something with a decent amount of volume.
    This is an important requirement.
    Not sure if this eliminates all of the USB powered ones, or not ?

    Would like to keep the cost at $ 40 or so, max.

    Looked at all the reviews in Amazon, and you can really go crazy.
    Sure are a lot of offerings in this price range, and below.

    Seems like all of the reviews, always, have about 20 % or so that don't like what they
    bought, irrespective apparently of brand and/or price.

    So, may I please ask:

    What do you like, and what would be your suggestion as to what to purchase ?

    Happy Holidays, and thanks,

    Maybe you should look into a headset since you are hard of hearing.

    You can get a Bluetooth version so there will not be any wire's to restrict you.

Speaker issues
This might not have anything to do with the Windows 10 installation, but i noticed that my speakers suddenly have been heating up really fast. In fact they heat up so much that ash smell comes from them. Anyone facing similar issues?

Speaker Fill Missing
Since Win 10, my "speaker fill" is missing. I use headphones, so it's essential. Also, Quadraphonic & 5.1 aren't working properly neither, and I have the latest Realtek updates.
