Maybe they are only warm because they're pretty crap speakers for £160.

Can you suggest a good alternative then?

Personally I would get a separate amp and bookshelf speakers from somewhere like Richer Sounds. There is a Cambridge Audio amp for about £80, leaving £80 for speakers (or £100 if you push the boat out). If you want real value for money, then second hand is the best way to go. This will be vastly superior to any 2.1 system for music.

Of course my suggestion isn't as convenient as an off-the-shelf 2.1 system, but it should sound much, much better and offers more flexibility.

If you really want a 2.1 system then avoid Bose as their prices are about double what they should be and they spend far more time, money and effort on marketing than they do on actual speaker design. They also set displays up in shops to make their stuff sound better than it actually is.

Logitech will do a decent system for less money (e.g. the Z-2300), especially if you find a deal/code. The Acoustic Energy AEGO M (£120) is meant to be good too. Klipsch are another decent brand.

One final alternative is active monitors. These combine the amp inside the speakers and so are neater than a separate amp/speakers. The Audioengine A2s (or A5s if you can afford them, but they are about £250 due to the rip-off Britain effect) are meant to be good.

But personally separate amp/speakers wins for me. It will last ages too. I have had my first system for over 10 years.

You mean something that is 10x the size and will look crap on the desk? There is also the design element to Bose products you know. Things that look nice generally cost more in all areas of consumerism.
