Whether or not the Vers 2x will appeal to you depends largely on the relative values you place on design, environmentally-focused production, sound quality, and features. For a basic, desktop speaker system, the 2x is up there with the most attractive we've tested, is solidly (and sustainably) built, and sounds decent. However, at $180, you're paying for that design and, presumably, for Vers Audio's attention to the system's environmental impact (which I wholeheartedly commend). Similarly, the 2x's features and sound quality are limited compared to some of the better systems in this price range. Still, I was sad to see the review unit go--it looked so good on my desk.--Dan Frakes
