Hi guys, I've been a lurker for a LONG TIME now but better sounding music has been one of the things I've wanted to get into for a long time.
My budget is...well it really depends; right now its not much but by December I could probably spend alot more. I just want a starter setup.
To begin, my computer is running a Asus Gene-Z mATX Motherboard (Not sure what's included in here), and I wanted to make a start up speaker setup.
I was using the Klipsh Promedia 2.1 for awhile, but I left them at home (I moved for college), and one of the monitors broke anyways -_- they keep breaking.
After some digging I went with this CNET article.
Thinking about getting
I mainly listen to some Trance, electronic music, but I LOVE some MJ, Beatles, Freddy Mercury, and some Foster the People and Pop songs, ETC ETC. I have a very wide range in music, but for now I just want to listen to mainly EDM. Excessive bass is not always enjoyable, I do like clear and rich highs and nice mids.
Because of my range of music, I was also looking into buying a pair of headphones, probably more so for the non-EDM stuff. I was probably going to get the Audio Technica M50's.
Other things I've considered was buying a Creative X-Fi HD USB DAC for the speakers/headphones since I do game and whatnot.
Do you guys have any small suggestions on things I may be able to change around for a better sound without drastically changing the price? I am slowly building so ATM Speakers + Amp, Sub in 2-3 weeks and more after that.
P.S. ATM Mainly listen to mp3, but my more classic music I have in FLAC as well
