we found some on tuesday, although apparently there is a fault in them
somewhere. also, i have some old speakers from various stereos. the idea
of those "PC" or "multimedia" speakers is bizarre - they're just
speakers, like any other, the re-branding is pointless

you could re-purpose an old keyboard with those naff "multimedia"
buttons on it - take the keyboard apart, and use the big switches on the
front of the pokie machine to replace the switches on the kb.
if they don't quite work as you want, you can use gnome (presumably
kde, xfce also) to re-map the key actions
