I'm wanting to replace my very nice but very large Edifier 5.1 system with a more compact 2.0 system. It's mostly the sub that's the problem, it's too large for my office when I get a full sized desk in there. The Edifier system's for sale btw, it sounds awesome but it's too large for my office.

It's driven by my PC, and it's for my office. I watch a bit of TV in there when i'm working, I listen to music occasionally, and I show customers slide shows of their photos with a bit of music - i'm a photographer. For music I can use headphones, I have some really nice ones.

I want a 2.0 system where the speakers can be wall mounted, that will give me at least semi decent sound. They have to look reasonably professional, not like cheap computer speakers. I don't need great bass, I just want something better than the TV speakers. I have brackets on the wall that speakers slip onto, it's basically a screw the speakers slot into/over, with a keyhole type shape on the speaker, so the speakers can't be toooo heavy. Budget say $200.

The ones i've found are:
 - Solo 3C (or the smaller 2C). They look almost perfect, but i'm not sure if they can be wall mounted easily. I might have to build a shelf to get them up there.
 - Genius SP-HF1800A. They look decent but i'd prefer to have the controls off the speakers - it's not a deal breaker though.

Any thoughts?

I ended up ordering the Microlab Solo 6C. I'll report back with my impressions if anyone's interested.
