what speakers are you using?
what speakers would you like to have?
Some people recommed bookshelf speakers and and a cheap amp. I've been really curious about that. How well it works? or being more specific what advantages has above buying some Logitech speakeres.
Any bookshelf speaker of any respectable quality is going to sound better than PC speakers in plastic cabinets. Trying to make a 5.1 or even 2.1 for that kind of price cannot be of any quality at all.
It's a cliche but conventional hodge-podge directivity designs just sound bad now
Aperion Intimus 5T towers, 5C center, & 5B surrounds with Bravus 8B sub
I currently own a pair of Boston Acoustics T-1000, don't really have any other speaker models in mid.
If anything, the first thing that is getting upgraded is my receiver which is a Yamaha r-s201. This is probably years down the line, though.
what do you guys think are the most important design considerations when it comes to speakers?
something more specific than just "low distortion" or whatever. like dispersion characteristics, efficiency, bandwidth, subjective coloration and so on
KRK Rokit 5s
Love them, surprisingly great for jazz
Not sure what speaker i would want though since there are way too many fucking speakers and everyone seems to have a completely different opinion on what speakers to buy
Oh, I guess the downside is that without an attenuator or something, you'd have to control volume through software (or get up and adjust the amps on the back of the speakers, but who does that?).
>not building treatment directly into the wall
What, you don't own your home?
my 24" 2000w reflex woofer isnt in the pic
1x Alto mac 2.2
4x CW XLS 215
2x Fence Stage 1212
1x Fence FS-24PA
i also have those 2x 15" peavey HP 400's you see in the background. now.
They sound breddy gud, but I'm not an audiophile.
I should probably actually move them CLOSER to the wall to avoid bass cancellation tho - i live in a rented nyc apartment, so I cant do too much by way of treatments
Cerwin Vega says they are 500w max but i use the crown xti on the woofers. which is arround 350w RMS for each 15" and that seems to be "enough" 700w per speaker. i use the alto max 2.2 for the mid/high and they play decent. they are nothing compared to my old Klipsch RF 82mk2. but they play nice, and really loud

Fostex FF125WK in Audioprodukt cabinets
>what speakers would you like to have?
I'm content for now. It's really impossible to know what I might like better without hearing them.
I have a 2.1 klipsch pro media set that I bought for like 130 usd 4 years ago or so. They sound good to me, definitely the best PC speakers I've owned, but then again I've always had really shitty ones in the past. I dig em.
Is Sherwood a good brand?
I don't want to buy a used receiver, but I don't want to spend a lot of money either so I'm looking into something like this.
I've had shit luck with mini amps like the LP 2020A and the Dayton Audio DTA 1, they both broke on me so I'm hoping a receiver will have better build quality.
This is the one I have in mind.
Got a pair of these babies.
They're nice, I'm quite satisfied with them. Don't really have an "endgame" pair of speakers or anything, these sound perfectly fine for now.
I'm using some klipsch bookshelf speakers but I would rather have their tower speakers when I move into the basement later this year. What I really want is a pair of classic floorstanding stereo speakers.
I am mostly concerned about the possibility of getting something that is broken, or close to breaking and having absolutely no way of getting it replaced, like I would with something that still has a warranty.
ASUS VS238H-P onboard speakers. Trebles are great, bass gets a little washed out but overall the sound quality is great.
Would something like this be good for movies and games?
I'm already satisfied with the speakers and headphones I use on my PC for music, I just want something to boost the sound on my TV, something not too expensive.
kek yeah... the design is pretty terrible, can't argue against that.
I considered the thrift store idea but then I would need something to power the speakers, which sort of takes me back to square one.
It does huh
Samsung usually makes good products though, at least I've never had problems with their cell phones.
If you want decent sound for not too much money, Scythe Kro Craft speakers + a cheap(ish) amp is the way to go.
Just make sure you get something that can handle at least 25W per channel, as the Scythe speakers aren't exactly the most efficient.
polk RTi A7's
pretty much just what I want right now.
Isn't that the shitty chinese speakers "made by" a Norwegian company, where the owner fucked over another company or something. He is in prison for fraud or something now.
buy a pair of active monitors and sound card. be done with it
That's not what I was implying at all.
I was just saying that audiophiles in general tend to be cunts, and I was curious if that guy at least a great setup, to explain the attitude.
