M-audio has some models around that price, maybe you can check them out.

But I believe good monitors are a bit more expensive.

I agree with Fran - both about M-Audio, and about that being entry level. Unless you get active monitors you will also need an amplifier to go with them as well - actives tend to be a little more expensive I believe.

I think the AV40s are closer to being studio monitors, the DX4s look a bit "gamier" - although its hard to tell from those links. They do appear to both be active.

These are definitely entry level but I would expct them to be better than the average computer speaker for sure.

Remember you will need appropriate cables to hook these up.

I went with the KRK RP5's They seem to have great revies and can connect via XLR or RCA or 1/4" TRS. I'll be connecting to my Toneport via the TRS.

I picked up a gently used set via the "Bay" for $165. With the exchange, that's prolly close to a 100 euros.

I have Altec Lansing and they are cheap and decent PC speakers. I suggest a 2.1 system.

I got myself a pair of Samson Resolv 40a Active monitors http://cgi.ebay.com/Samson-Resolv-40a-Acti...1QQcmdZViewItem
here are selling a used pair. But KRK RP5 should be a lot of better.
