Altec's system includes two 2-inch full-range speakers and a 4-inch side firing subwoofer (all are magnetically shielded), and includes both USB and 3.5mm connectivity. The BXR1321 has a recommended price tag of €34.99 (it's found on pre-order as low as €29) and is set for a May release.
On a related note, next month Altec Lansing will also release the BXR1320 2.0 system (same thing as the BXR1321 but lacking the subwoofer) priced at €20.
