Don't know if this is the right place to ask. I mainly listen to electronic dance music. I have Sony XB-500 headphones for 6 months. Its certainly not audiophile quality but I can get warm pleasing sound after using some equalization. (some cut in 3-6kHz range, and a little in 50-100Hz)
Recently I've purchased a cheap 2.1 system SRS-D8 from Sony, which has been truly disappointing so far. Even applying drastic equalization will not bring it anywhere near the smoothness and warmth of XB500. So, I am looking for a stereo system for playing high bit-rate mp3s that
1. has adequate response around 200-500Hz (this is where my cheap 2.1 fails miserably)
2. must not be fatiguing, good to have attenuated treble like XB500 (especially in 3-6kHz range)
3. has response down to 40Hz
4. the angle of sound emission should not be too narrow.
My budget is $500-1000.
