What started as a venture into good headphones turned into a complete audio revamp.. Or a desire to.
I would like to unify my tv, computer into 1 nice stereo system and am not sure if I should go by a home theater system for $200 on Black Friday and just call it a day. Plug in my computer and tv into the receiver and that's that. Or if I should "custom" build a setup.
I'm broke and it's only for my room so it will be a budget build for $200 or less. Source will be my computer mostly, my Android phone and tv.
So far all I have is onboard soundcard from my motherboard and Shure SRH840s. I've been told to invest in a DAC (+amp) as a priority.
Should I get top of the line computer speakers such as the z5500? Or should I get my own speakers, amp and put together something that can run both my tv and computer?
If you could choose ANY item or any combination of items for your room setup from www.newegg.com, what would you choose? Try to keep the budget under $300. Has to be Newegg cause I have a $100 credit there.
I don't know enough about audio yet to know which ones are deemed "exceptional" and hifi, and what's mid fi or lowfi. It would be easier to just buy an all-in-one home theater or computer speaker set but if it means garbage quality, I'd rather get FEWER, QUALITY products and save up and buy more later on and build my collection.
