I am not hoping for the moon but I will be listening to most of my lossless music on my MacBook Pro via some Sennheiser HD 558 headphones, but would like something when I'd just rather not use the Sennheisers.
All the speakers I look up on Amazon have one flaw or another. One problem is the reviewers are often nowhere near appreciating good sound and practically anything sounds great to them. I've looked at computer speakers from Bose, Altec Lansing, Klipsch, Logitech, Audioengine, and many others.
I know I can get Audioengine A2's for around $180/pair directly from manufacturer but have read they're primarily designed for nearfield listening and since I would like moderate bedroom volume production from my speakers, not nearfield, and would like to get closer to $100/pair, they are not my preferred choices.
I've read a handful of things about Swan speakers, has anyone bought or heard them? I'm in unenviable position of not being able to listen to whatever I buy too.
Can I get any 'decent' speakers at or close to $100? Listen to lots of classical lossless music, artists like Andrea Bocelli, Jennifer Warnes, Acoustic Alchemy, The Band, etc. I doubt I can expect to find any speakers close to the quality of the 558 Sennheisers, but what can anyone recommend?
(I will at some point buy a cheap DAC probably by Fiio to connect via USB to my MBPro and iPhone and hope to improve my sound slightly by using such a device too)
