I have the Klipsch ProMedia 2.1s and they're great (got em on sale for around $125). Sound quality and bass are way beyond anything I've seen at that price point. I don't think I'd consider them "Audiophile" speakers, nor any 2.1 Powered AUX speakers, but they're definitely very nice. Only real flaws are that they're not at all portable due to the giant sub, and that Klipsch does not have replacement parts in stock, so if something small breaks you either have to pay a lot to replace the whole thing or try your luck on ebay for parts (which worked out for me).

Well, 99% of "multimedia" (aka computer) speakers aren't "audiophile" quality, but the Klipsch are at least of good quality. Corsair builds great computer components, but I can't imagine them making good speakers, especially since they are marketed as "gaming speakers." Then again, you never know. Look at Asus; their Xonar products are certainly of audiophile quality.
I have an old pair of Altec Lansing MX5021's, which are great for "computer speakers," and I loved them when I got them before I started high school...but these days, they just don't cut it for me. The amp in them is also starting to die. Maybe I'll mod them for fun someday to see what I can get out of them (the electronics have a lot of room for improvement), so we'll see.
Above all, if there's going to be a drop on "desktop PC speakers" in an "audiophile" category, two things that generally don't go well together (not that there aren't exceptions of course), lets get as close to "audiophile" audio as we can. Besides, I personally would rather see a drop on a more expensive item as most computer speakers are pretty affordable for many people.

I took the Corsairs home for a week when they were first released and did not care for them at all. They are excellent for gaming but (IMO) terrible for music. I far prefer my Klipsch PM 2.1.
