There are plenty of ridiculously expensive speakers out there that might deliver on their price tags for all I know, but there are also those who claim to have never heard anything better than, say, a set of Quad ESL-57s or ESL-63s, regardless of the price point.

 

Audio is one of those really subjective things in the end. You get objective improvements, but after a certain point, you're paying more for a particular sound coloration and presentation along with the brand, prestige of owning such an expensive product, etc. At least, that's what it all seems like to me, and that's before I get into the blatant audiophile snake oil.

A5's? LOL

 

They are OK for the price, but they are hardly the best that one can buy. 

 

I hang out a lot at AVS, and you never see B&O speakers recommended for home theater.

I'd recommend the A2 Powered Speakers from Paradigm for computer audio speakers. Take it from a company whose been around for about thirty years with a "name" in the audiophile world of speakers.

 

Destroysall.

Your gonna get lots opinions there is no  accpted general opinion on the best,  Ive listened to many speakers  from that experience id say the best budget speakers were the fostex pm0.4 when they sold them for 150 shipped, the best I think beven though I havnt heard them would be the Dynaudio air25 active three way monitors.
