Altec Lansing launches budget USB-powered desktop speakers

Altec Lansing BX1321 2.1 speaker system

If you're looking for an affordable way to improve the sound from your laptop or computer, then here are two suggestions from Altec Lansing.

The BXR1320 features a pair of compact speakers with 2in full-range drivers. Powered by USB, simply plug and play to hear them in action.

For a bit more bass for your buck, you can add a subwoofer. The BXR1321 is a 2.1 system thanks to the addition of a 4in downward firing bass driver.

The speakers will be out in mid-May from Amazon, Currys, PC World and others, with the BXR1320 at around £20 and the BXR1321 at £35.
