Anyone know any cheap speakers that don't need to be powered? Have a user that claims she has missed two appointments since getting a new computer as it doesn't have sound.

The can be a cheap as you like, I don't want to arrange for additional power to be installed to allow them to work!

Yes thats the real reason!

You can get Creative speakers for well under £20 at places like Staples and even cheaper, but not quite as good ones, from various outlets such as those made in China and similar countries.

I found that a pair of JVC speakers, the kind you connect to a Walkman worked Ok for basic sound and monitoring - I found that they worked without any batteries or needing to be plugged in. Not very loud of course but fine for general use and monitoring.

I've used a really cheap set of walkman speakers in the past, only cost a couple of quid, not pretty and the sound quality was awful but it worked as long as the sound card was up to it.
