I really don't post much in these forums, as my wants increase as I read about all this awesome audio gear.
For computer related questions I only turn to overclockers forums, for audio I come here. I find this forum to be the most respected in its content field.
A couple of years ago I bought a pair of audioengine a2 speakers and loved them. The little a2s sounded better than my onkyo 7.1 speaker set. I used a compressed air duster and ended up messing up the right audioengine a2 speaker. At loud volumes with heavy bass it vibrates horribly now.
As of now I'm using 5.1 of my 7.1 onkyo system. The receiver is HT-R550. It was a system in a box. I think I paid $200 USD
originally for it.
My computer is hooked up to the tv now. I have a 60" plasma tv I just bought. Speakers were absolute garbage on the tv. My old 42" had better speakers, so i hooked up the onkyo system.
I have been thinking about loosing the onkyo system and switching to the powered A5+ with a remote or maybe their passive ap4 and using the receiver. I am kinda sick of all the wires though. Though I am open to alternatives. Can anyone recommend me a good speaker powered or not around audioengine prices?
It will be used for movies, music, and games. I have a ps3, xbox 360, wii, and a Core i7 pc with a radeon 5870 that uses a Xonar Essence STX soundcard. I sit about 25-30 feet away.
I know it sounds like I'm sold on audioengine but I'm not. I'm open to suggestions and have heard that the a5's bass overpowers soft spoken voices. Is this true? Any and all help is much appreciated.
