Creative presents the Inspire S2 - Palm-Sized Satellite Speakers with kick ass subwoofer

Inspire S2

Before you diss the Inspire S2 off as yet another speaker system from Creative's ever growing Inspire family (these speakers are mating even as we speak), can I say that the size of each satellite speaker is just slightly larger than the size of a tennis ball? Although ultimately it still defeats the whole purpose of that by having such a huge subwoofer, I believe we can still live with that as long as its hidden somewhere beneath the table as a leg rest. Besides the small footprint of these speakers, I also like the Aux-In input on the satellite and the adjustable bass control. Speaking in Singapore's monetary terms, these speakers are a good $40 bucks more than the recently release Inspire T3130 (also a 2.1 configuration), which brings us to the question of whether the S2 is too expensive for a 2.1 system. Afterall I could add another $10 for a GigaWorks T20 or purchase the Inspire T6160 (5.1) at the same price.
