Sound quality, schmound quality. It is more important to have a unique-looking speaker that sounds horrible but looks good doing it. That is why I am ditching my 6.1 system that sounds like angels singing beautiful melodies for this USB vase speaker. Why? Look at it! It's a vase! And a speaker! ... Wait, what? It has LEDs that blink to the acoustics of my audio? Just when I thought it couldn't get any cooler. Wow! Sign me up.
To summarize: this 2-way speaker system will likely sound like crap, but at least it will look nice sitting on your desk. $55.
