Swans M20W and other animals

I’m looking for a sub $100 desktop speaker setup for the summer when my headphones get sweaty and gross. I found the Swans M20W but I’m not sure if that’s really necessary at a desk. Believe it or not, I’ve never owned a real set of speakers.
I’d defintely prefer power speakers though.

I haven’t used the M20’s.
I used a set of M10’s for a while, the thing to be aware of is the Sub isn’t a Sub, it’s pushing low midrange and really does need to be positioned centrally for then to sound adequate.
That can be inconvenient depending on you desk layout.

It does claim to use a 6" subwoofer but then so does the M10. Have you heard the Edifier R1280T or the R1700BT? I think I’d prefer bookshelf speakers anyway.
