You might have noticed me making threads about headphones and speakers, I just couldn't make up my mind on what to upgrade first. I realized however that if I go for headphones first I'll only have one crappy logitech speaker for a while. This as you can imagine doesn't sound good and as a result I'll probably damage my hearing from using headphones all the time (have heard some beeping, I just cannot help myself putting it louder). As such yet another thread, sorry.
Reason I made this thread is because I could not find a thread which is regarded to this exact matter. If you have seen such a thread please post the link. Will be scourging for more info regardless because I get quite obsessed with researching stuff I want to buy, especially headphones (actually everything which greatly intrerests me).
Anyway. I'm not looking for analytical speakers. I want them to sound engaging, musical/warm with a solid bass presence, I am a bit of a basshead.
I've read lot's of reconmendations but am hesistant because I've read most active speakers are meant for in the studio and as such as analytical as possible. Is this true for all active speakers? I hope not because I would rather not have to buy an extra component (dedicated amp). Also size doesn't really matter for me, and I'll be sitting around 3 meters away from them. If a sub is needed for the bass I would like active speakers with the option to connect a sub later on. 2.0 is my preference though. Best bang for the buck is what I'm aiming for, if 50 euro's extra will only give a 5% improvement I would rather not spend that extra.
