Behringer is one of those companies that produces some great bang for the buck products and some products that are cheap and sucky. I'm basing my recommendation of the 1030A based on owning their older brother 2030P speakers. $200 isn't a lot of money and to get better for that price you'd probably be looking at used speakers.

Just keep in mind that nothing is going to make low bit rate MP3s sound great. If you haven't done so already I'd try to start building a collection of lossless (WAV, FLAC, or ALAC) music.
