Looking for some speakers to hook up to my desktop / computer setup. I have great headphones, but sometimes I need some speakers for it.
It's my home office, and I tend to work / listen at night when my girls our in bed / asleep, so I need to keep the volume relatively low, so I'm looking for a set of speakers that work well at low volumes.
From my readings, the Adam A5x and Swan m200MkIII seem to do really well for a lot of people, but I hadn't seen much reference to their abilities at low volumes.
The room I'm listening in is also quite small (probably about 10 x 10 or so)
I like a lot of detail and seem to like fairly neutral setups with maybe a hint of extra bass (my favorite iems to date are Miracles > Klipsch x10 > hf3)
On the desk, I have a pretty decent preamp and a really nice dac hooked up balanced. The pre has both balanced and rca outputs, as does the dac, although my thoughts were to run through the preamp to the powered speakers, and use the volume control on the pre.
Forgot to mention that I have a fabulous floor setup that I can almost never use now due to the little ones, so I really don't ever see the need to have a system for the office that needs to expand for room filling, or anything other than near field listening at lower volumes
