If you want the best of the best audio then speakers isn't the way to go. Headphones can cram in much more power when it comes to audio. If you buy a headphone then I recommend audio technica.

I have a Cambridge Soundworks/THX set up. It's pretty badass, especially for the Money I paid for it!

I think best is hard to define here, it's more question how much you are willing to spend to speakers. And also the soundcard makes huge difference at least while using headsets, I'm not sure is it so notable with speakers.

I use Creative Sound Blaster Z soundcard with Razer Tiamat 2.2 headset and I can say they rock, in anime, music and gaming

Not much for a fancy setup here. Just a very reliable Logitech Z313 system (2.1 channel)
Provides a pretty good sound for a small footprint (as the main speakers aren't that big and conveniently hide behind the monitor)

I feel like any generic 2.1 L/R + Sub speaker set up that any store sells for $20~ is more than adequate for watching videos on your PC.

If you like your 10 year old speakers, you should just keep using them. Speakers aren't technologically blasting ahead of themselves every few years or anything. Manufacturers may want to convince you otherwise, but in essence they're pretty simple designed devices.

that's not true at all. some cheap 2.1's might be a step better than built in speakers on your monitor or laptop, but a good 2.1 setup will be even better. a cheap 2.1 system will only utilize 1 small driver to produce highs and mids where a better system will have a speaker/satellite with a driver for mids and a tweeter for the highs. this results in better clarity and sound quality. the tiny subwoofers can't even compare to a good sub like my Corsair's SP2500 or my previous Klipsch ProMedia 2.1's. i've had at least 15-20 different computer speaker setups throughout the years.

remember that better sound quality = better experience through better sound immersion.

i have the Audio Technica ATH-M50's and they're pretty good headphones. the downfall with using good headphones for your laptop/computer is that, usually, the general consumer doesn't have a good enough soundcard to properly power them. i have a $3200 Sager laptop and it's stock soundcard (with upgraded SFX software) can barely power my AT-M50's. i have to plug them into my A/V receiver or my Corsair SP2500's control module because the SP2500 is powered by like 6 digital amps. only then will they truly "unlock" the power of my AT-M50's.

if headphones/IEM's are your preferred choice then look into getting a cheap ($50~) DAC amp

Every company wants to make as much money as possible on each product... And this is why you build your own custom built PC to maximize sound quality.
