I'm looking for good compact 2.0 speakers less than $200. These are for my bedroom to put on a dresser/headstand to help me relax. They must be self-powered and have RCA audio input capability. The source is going to be streaming MP3's at 192 and above kbps from a Blu-ray player. Not going to be playing it loud, just at comfortable listening levels. Bass must be recessed or have fast response. I cannot relax to boomy bass.
I'm looking the AV40, but I'm not sure how those will fit. Something about the size of typical Logitech/Creative desktop speakers will do. It doesn't really have to be anything special, just something with a good sound:size ratio.
A few minutes ago I setup my new MP5 (Monoprice 5") studio monitors, so far they seem to sound fairly good, have not done any tweeking with the setup yet (if there is any tweeking to be done).
The MP5s appear to be rebadged M-Audio BX5s (A? or D2?), currently Monoprce is selling them for $165, some other websites are selling the MP5s for over $185.
