The AV40s sound amazing. I have wanted them for a while. They are by far the best sounding speaker I have had on my computer. I played some songs by feist and I really can't believe how good they sound.

The Logitech Z623? I have heard them before they don't sound bad for entertainment like movies and games. But for music I would say they are lacking. I have Klipsch promedia 2.1 speakers for movies and games in my bedroom system. My main audio set up is harman kardon reciever with infinity primus speakers. but for my bedroom/computer room I use the promedias attached to my 3d 50 inch plasma. And the studio monitors and headphones on the computer. The Klipsch do sound really good. I feel alot of songs sound more accurate on the M-Audio av40s and I prefer them on music. But some rap or techno I listen to misses the real deep lows as the av40s have no sub.

Hey,

 

If you found the sound signature you like (Grado/AKG), why not just invest in them. Maybe Grado RS1?

The ha400 is an amp not just a switch. I would prefer to upgrade to a better amp and be able to switch between headphones without having to unplug them

Hope you don't mind a quick question (I get so confused with basic cabling):  

 

I'm gonna order the the AV40's.  I have the NuForce Icon HD dac/amp connected to my source/computer with USB.  To connect the AV40's to my dac/amp, do I just use a set of RCA cables from the NuForce to the AV40's left speaker, and then use speaker wires to connect the two speakers?  I'm not sure if I need RCA cables or different types to connect the NuForce and the AV40's.  

 

Thanks

they come with an adaptor that would fit in a normal headphone/speaker jack on a sound card. But yes they could also just connect via rca jacks.

Hey there, quick question. Which do you prefer, your headphones or your speakers? in terms of sound quality, which is better?

Hard to compare. I think overall the headphones are better sounding. But in certain songs the speakers seem to perform better. They hit some lows much better then the headphones I have.
