"I am looking to get a set of inexpensive really good sounding bookshelf speakers
for my living room (only going to be using for 2 channel music. I would like to spend a max of $110
You've already entered the oxymoron...This hobby has VERY VERY little that you could describe that way especially at $110.00.
First places to check are your local pawn shop and then www.audiogon.com
. If you find what you're seeking new; we're probably ALL interested in that, so could you please quickly forward me the make and model. I'm sorry, I am NOT trying to sound or be condescending, but I just don't know if such a thing is possible or exists when one takes into account purchase of materials, driver manufacture, assembly, shipping, etc etc. no matter how cheap the labor in China/Vietnam/Malaysia/Thailand or wherever. Best for less: the new PSBs at $249.99 pr. Sound great, less filling! I know that you can in fact get speakers for that kind of money it's just the "really good sounding" part that I'm referring to. Good luck.
