The Bottom Line This five-piece home-theater speaker package offers shockingly good sound for a mere $199. The Energy Take Classic 5.1 is the best budget speaker system we've reviewed, earning our Editors' Choice Award with its outstanding sound quality and exquisite looks. You can't beat Fluance's rock-bottom pricing, solid construction, and sound quality, which rivals that of more expensive speakers. The Monoprice 8247 does the impossible by offering a competent 5.1 speaker system for less than $100, setting a new standard for ultrabudget speakers.
