For a speaker that doesn't get much press, the PM0.4D is surprisingly good. I honestly don't think I've heard a better speaker for under $200. The tone is full, balanced, and musical, with lots of punch for a smaller speaker. The pedigree of these speakers is in the studio—they're officially powered monitors, not stereo speakers—but they sound so good that I highly recommend making these part of any desktop setup.
It should be noted that the PM0.4n is set up a bit differently than normal powered speakers: Each speaker is individually powered, so you'll have to find two outlets instead of the one you'd normally expect, and each speaker takes its own input, which means you'll need a split RCA cable if you're coming out of a single source like an iPod or computer. But I promise you that you'll be so blown away
