Monoprice is an Internet retailer that made a name for itself providing tech accessories at insanely low prices. Not content with accessories, Monoprice is now branching out into its own branded line of tech products. Even with Monoprice's reputation for bargains, we were shocked to see the Monoprice 8247: it's a 5.1 surround-sound speaker package you can buy for the seemingly impossible price of $84.10. We won't hype the Monoprice 8247 any more than that. This isn't an audiophile experience and you shouldn't expect one. Still, the Monoprice system sounds much better than it has any right to at this price and it's the perfect starter 5.1 speaker system or secondary system for a smaller room.
