Music. I wouldn't mind if it only worked for one room.
Budget?

Budget?

Honestly I'd like to spend less than $200 but I'm open to suggestions.

The Audioengine A2 for $199 is a fantastic pair of speakers. Google around, you'll see the serious respect that these guys get from the audiophile community. They have silk tweeters, custom Kevlar woofers, gold connections, and a wooden cabinet, things which are normally found on much higher priced speakers. They are also very small, and are fully self-powered so no need for an amp or receiver. I have their big brother, the Audioengine A5+ and I couldn't be happier with them.

Other options include, the $139 M-Audio AV-40 , the $169 Harman Kardon Soundsticks, or the $95 Edifier Exclaim.
I think that the Audioengine A2 are the best value out all of these.

What would you recommend for a portable system? Music and microphone announcements to groups 100-200 people

I don't know much about PA systems. Sorry.

For home music, I know of a few options:

1) An all in one system like these:
Bose bluetooth Speakers

2) Powered speakers with a separate device for input. For example:
Bose Companion II speakers (which I used to have and are awesome) + a bluetooth receiver like this one from Belkin
or
A small Lepai amplifier (which I still have in is amazing) + any set of bookshelf speakers + a bluetooth receiver like the belkin one above
or
A home theatre in a box set (also amazing, and these sets float around on craigslist for pretty cheap used all the time) +bluetooth receiver like the belkin one mentioned above.

Hope that helps, and let me know if you have any other questions.

Nothing like reviving a thread with inches of dust.

I got this speaker and want to know which amplifier/cables I need to use it with a Korg keyboard. Any help is appreciated!
