Is there such a thing?

Basically I want to buy my wife a Linksys music bridge for her birthday. It basically allows you to stream music (wirelessly) to wherever you put it. It has RCA, line, and optical out for audio.

Would I be better off just buying some powered computer speakers? Or are there better sounding speakers that I could use? I don't want to buy a receiver to power the speakers, I just want to connect speakers. My budget for the speakers are ~$100, give or take a $20. Any suggestions is appreciated. Thanks!

What about these (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000BN7CRU/sr=1-57/qid=1142064140/ref=sr_1_57/002-3327034-0564827?%5Fencoding=UTF8&s=electronics)?

I like these because they are self powered, no subwoofer and they seem decent. My wife isn't going to nit pick over one speaker or the other, but I will occasionally use them as well.

Sorry, no advice on speakers available.

Yep, I looked at those. Most of them are too expensive and beyond my needs. I like the linksys because it is simple and cheap :)

OK :)

What I like about them is that the TV can stay off when listening to music. The M1000 isn't that expensive.
