Hi all, I'm in need of some advice on what speakers to buy for the PC.
I had a Z-5500 that I sold because of the harsh highs and the floating 120 Hz bass.
Right now I'm back to my set of Creative T6060's which are also 5.1, and I decided I don't need 5.1 - it doesn't do much for me, for music it is absolutely worthless, and for gaming I prefer to use my headphones.
As for the headphones I have the Superlux HD-668B and I like the way they sound, and they are supposed to have a neutral monitoring sound.
I'm looking for speakers that are like this, from what I understand most PC, and "HI-FI" speakers change the sound in a lot of
ways...I'd prefer speakers like these headphones, which do as little of that as possible.
Now I pretty much have my sights set on the KRK RP series monitors because it is the only thing I can buy where I live that has a solid reputation, and that is actually within my price range. I was going for the RP5 but I read a lot of people saying how they don't have much low-end and I fear that I won't have enough bass as I do listen to a lot of Psy-trance and such...so I would probably stretch my budget over to an RP6 ( I know there is the subwoofer also but that costs just like another set of speakers and I won't have that kind of money soon )
I'm not exactly a bass-head, I prefer it to be there to support, but not overtake - the rest of the music if you know what I mean. I think the HD668B has just the right amount of bass in most cases.
But the thing that concerns me is that most of the discussion about the KRK's is from people who mix and produce music (obviously) and a lot of them say that they are -too flat for listening-, -not for music-, etc. How can something that gives as accurate a sound as possible be bad for listening to music? I don't understand. Maybe people prefer colored Hi-fi gear, but like I said I like the sound of the Superlux.
So would these speakers be good for me? The use would be 60% music, 40% games and movies.
And could you take a look at this list, where I'm buying, and if there is anything there that is better and costs less than "1.990,00"" please suggest it.
