    cheap micro speaker with USB audio anyone ?

    I'm thinking of adding a secondary audio out to my machine running squeezeslave.
    I can add a second USB card, but I though something like X-mini, but with both USB power and USB audio might do the trick ?
    Inexpensive is nice. I don't want bluetooth (no need and seems expensive.) The speaker just needs to be able to reproduce voice at reasonable volume. Musical quality is not really a question.

    Any ideas ?

    Don't know what your budget is and they're not really micro-sized but I have a set of these, which I've found surprisingly good in my limited listening:

    Thanks!
    (they look a bit "too nice" for what I had in mind…)
