    ur current choice is the best one u can get under 3K i.e. altec ATP3....the other contenders are creative inspire 2.1 or logitech x-230 but overall ATP3 is the winner...

    so without giving any second thoughts go for ATP3...

    ENjoy...

    Logitech X-230 is the best in class speakerand also the Creative SBS 370. Altec Lansing ATP3 is very weak in case of BASS reproduction.

    Well I have ATP3 and must say that u have to hear it to believe. Other suggestion would be Logitech X-230 or creative inspire 2500/3000 (if it comes witin ur budget).
    Don't go for SBS 370 (they are good but not in the same league as the other models suggested).

    I have heard both creative SBS370 and Altec lansing ATP3.....you can't compare them.

    ATP3 is a different league.....bass is really good.

    Creative one ...well what can i say....its bass sucks actually, seems to have a very small powered woofer.....if you increase the bass volume for more effect it distorts.....so one really has to listen at very low to mid volume level.

    YOU have to make the choice. Sound is very subjective. I would suggest the ATP-3 or the Logitech X-230. Not the creative SBS, inspire is OK, but not the SBS.

    Thanks a lot guys...

    Even i have heard creative inspire and ATP3... i know they are in different league. However, what about Logitech X230.

    Now my choice is between ATP3 and logitech X230 (I havn't heard logitech... so tell me if someone has tried it)
