For a Creative Zen MP3 player, I'm looking for some really good speakers..any ideas?

Thanks in advance. :)

Do you want portable?

If you want 'really good' you could look at some of those nice little Genelecs. They sound lush.

not specifically for mp3 players, but anyone heard anything about this (http://www.sfxtechnologies.com/index.html#)???


Our pioneering Gel Audio™ Technology turns virtually any solid surface into a seamless, high quality loudspeaker without the need for speaker cut-outs or grills – including glass, plastic, metal, wood and composites.

and so cheap?!?!

Very interesting. So many potential uses in the wider environment (like the bus shelter suggestion in that article).

i've seen clips of crappier looking devices using the same principle. the sound was what you'd expect to hear when using random materials that were never intended to be speakers, i.e. poo.

maybe the comsol jobby is better? it's an interesting concept...

Are they kind of like PZMs in reverse? Those can sound quite good so maybe...

I'll stick with my Genelecs for now though. ;)

first thing i try is un-amped speaker to headphone/speaker jack.

works with sony amp IC, intel HDA, and some mp3player

60/70s shortwave radios form germany and japan are nice. typically 3 to 12 watts of audio power with FM tuning thrown in to boot. you might have to build a custom DIN5 cable (cut a MIDI) but its certainly a better way to invest 60 or 70 bux than some lame HarmonKardon dock with 2" 'woofers'. i can drive podcasts to neighbor-bothering levels with one of these (ITT Schaub Lorenz 107) and a bookshelf speaker from a trash heap
