- Receiver or home theater system with remote
- Soundbar with remote
- Powered (active) speaker system with remote
Update 1: Unfortunately, the Altec Lansing PT6021 does not live up to its specs and is therefore not recommended:
- AC hum is a problem, especially during soft passages, as acknowledged in the User's Guide: "Some low hum may be detected when your speaker system is powered on without an audio source playing, or when the volume is set at an extremely low level." (That's simply unacceptable.)
- Sound quality is mediocre, lacking in clarity.

Note: If you don't need remote volume control, try to find a good used Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 system -- it's head and shoulders above other affordable powered 2.1 speaker systems: dazzlingly clear sound, smooth response with strong bass, and ample volume.
