Dan's Data checks out Altec Lansing's XA3021 speaker system for you.
Altec Lansing's XA3021 speaker system is, beyond doubt, the silliest looking sound reproduction product I have ever reviewed. The satellite speakers look like microphones from 1957, and the subwoofer looks like a cartoon atom bomb.
Fortunately, the XA3021 kit is quite cheap, and it works perfectly well.

Beautiful crisp music whether classical or death metal, immersive gaming, good looks and POWER!! These were all characteristics of computing that I was missing until I was introduced to these compact, yet amazing sounding speakers. Upon the opening of the box, you will be introduced to a stylish set of speakers just like any other brand. But that is where the similarity ends.More information at Tweaknews.net
MonkeyReview have posted a review on the Muse LT sound card from Hercules.
Okay, this card has some seriously good qualities. Other than a few flaky episodes, it performed nicely under all tests. Installation was a breeze with all Windows based systems (9x/ME/2000/XP), and the test results were uniform across all the systems. All in all, this card is a great little addition to your system. It will certainly top that on-board sound chip, not only in music, but performance too.More information at MonkeyReview
