So, I've been thinking of getting a pair of speakers for a while now. I've been looking at speakers in the $150-$200 range. I want them to be small(not small like the "speakers" that come with your Dell PC, but compact), and not too dependent on positioning. I have an Essence STX.
Soundwise, I don't really know what I'm looking for. I know I'm not getting any bassmonsters when buying 2.0, and I'm fine with that, but I'll rather have something more bassy/"fun" than "harsh"/"cold".
I'm really not in the loop regarding speakers, so these suggestions might be obsolete, but I've been thinking about the Audioengine A2's, the M-Audio BX5a's and the AV-40's.
How big is the difference between the BX5a's and the AV40's?
Is there a great difference between the A2's and the BX5a's?
Any other suggestions on speakers in this pricerange?
In general, how much does the sound depend on room acoustics and positioning of the speakers with a 2.0 system?
