What computer speakers should I buy?

Episode 1495 (1:02:58)

Shell from Menifee, CA
Audio Engine A2 speakers

Shell's son makes music with his computer and he wants to get him some good speakers. Should he go wireless? Leo recommends wired to avoid signal interference, and Audio Engine makes some great speakers. Plus, since he makes music, bass is important and getting a sub woofer is vital. A pair of Audio Engine A2 speakers plus their S8 subwoofer would be great. So for around $500, he'll have a great sound system for his son's PC. Should he get surround sound for gaming? He could, but he'd need to have a sound card that supports it. It's not really necessary. Standard stereo will be fine for gaming at this point.
