I just ordered a pair of the Yamaha YST-M10 speakers that Craig O'Donnell mentioned in TidBITS #216. The YST series is Yamaha's part number for its cables; the first two dealers I talked to were puzzled by that. When I mentioned that I'd read about it in a computer magazine, they guessed correctly that the YST-M10 is a special model for computers that comes with the right cable. Dealers without the latest catalogs from Yamaha might not know this.

More interestingly, I found the speakers advertised in CDW's catalog (part number CDW 33070) for $89, but they'd lowered the price to $69 plus shipping, which is $30 lower than the next-lowest advertised price that I found.

CDW -- 800/906-4CDW
