The Creative Labs SBS 245 are a pair of compact and space saving. 2.0 speakers designed to deliver outstanding stereo performance. Very similar to the VS1520 from Altec Lansing, the SBS 242 also offers a relatively weak set of satellite speakers. The SBS 245, however, offers an increased peak power output (8w versus 6w), an improved nominal power output (4w versus 3w), and a superior frequency (90Hz-20kHz versus 140Hz-15000Hz). The SBS 245 also includes an audio line-in jack that supports analog music from MP3 players, laptops, and desktop PCs. The Creative Labs SBS 245 is priced at $19.99, a $10 decrease from its slightly superior competitor, the Altec Lansing’s VS1520.
