It seems we finally have a sub-$100 successor to the late, lamented Insignia NS-B2111. The Dayton Audio B652 bookshelf speakers sell for only $50 per pair on Amazon.com and they are getting lots of good reviews. I have not been able to test them yet but have been promised a loaner pair for review once they catch up to consumer demand. Given the $50 price and positive reviews I'd say they are a safe bet. See them at www.daytonaudio.com.
