I need help choosing new speakers for my computer. The thing is.. I am not looking for huge bulky speakers that take up a lot of space and the speakers will most likely be close to the wall so heating might be an issue. What are some decent speakers with good all around performance and aesthetics? Preferably clean sounding with more or less neutral bass. It doesn't have to have high volume capability or flat sounding as I am needing just pleasant sounding speakers. Design is important and I'm willing to compromise a bit of performance.
A speaker design that appeals to me is the B&W MM-1 - small, compact, simple minimalistic design. I have absolutely no idea how it sounds but it seems to have favourable reviews on the internet. Klipsch, Audioengine, PSB, Adam or any other monitors are too bulky looking so it's a big no no. My preferred budget is under $250 but can extend to $600 if necessary.
Thanks in advance!
