Which computer speakers should i buy?

post #1 of 48
Thread Starter 

Im deciding between Audioengine A2 and A5 also the PSB Image B4 or PSB Image B4 Compact. I have a $400 budget. Wondering what speakers i should get? Any recommendation is appreciated. Also were can you buy used speakers, in the US?

well those psbs will need power, so i'm assuming you already have a receiver or whatever and are down with other passive recommendations.  try looking at the behringer 2030p as well.

My setup was around $400. BX5a, Fubar II DAC, PSW202.

x2 this. 

They have a built in amplifier.

BX5a's should be better than the A5's, they're active crossover/bi amped, A5's use a passive crossover.

Haven't heard either myself. But both do have built in amps.

Im actually in the market for studio monitors myself.  I took a listen yesterday to the BX-5a's and several others.  For just a bit more $$$ the JBL LSR2325's and the Mackie MR5's sounded better then the BX-5's in my opinion.

 

I think I may actually go with a DIY project to fit my personal needs.

+1

 

AudioEngines are overrated.

That is what I was going to say.  There are many better speakers/monitors out there then Audio Engines.

+1 to the Bx5as. 

 

I haven't heard them in comparison to the Mackies, but they blew the A5s away. Note that haveblue's pic is of an older model of the Bx5as--the new ones look much nicer imo.

What sub will go well with the BX5A? And will a A/V Receiver be good?

The PSBs appear to be active; you'd need a receiver.

As for subs, M-Audio makes one, but it's quite pricey. Take a look at the Dayton 100 series.

Im leaning more on BX5a now. What will make a good 2.1 set with them?
