Lightweight "portable" setup

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi All,

 

Late this year my family and I will be moving to Ethiopia. This means our current hi-fi and portable systems (which are not worth taking) will need to stay. Unfortunately you can't buy good speakers/amps in Ethiopia. I'm after advice on what lightweight set up to buy now and take with us.

 

Key considerations:

The lighter the better as we'll be taking everything on the plane

Source will primarily be a variety of MP3 players and phones(Sansa Clip, Cowon iAudio7, iphone, nexus) & laptops

Genre of music: Kids music, rock, classical, gospel (a bit of everything really)

Type of usage: Background music primarily

Room size: likely to be in a lounge room

 

Options considered: 

Powered bookshelf speakers - Audioengine A2

Pros: self contained, lightweight

Cons: Audio quaility(?)

 

Other options:

Passive speakers with a small amp 

 

Cost: $400-500 (unless convinced otherwise :) )

 

Thanks for your thoughts.

 

Kym

Check out the Emotiva Airmotiv5 powered monitors. Lot of good testimonials for those.

They look good but I can't find anywhere in Australia that sells them.

You might send them an email and see if they do international shipping. 

 

Otherwise, find a guitar/music store near you that carries powered studio monitors and see if there is anything you like.
