I want to upgrade my desktop rig. In the last 2 years (yes I know its long) I've managed to squeeze in enough to get myself a top-notch IEM and ICE (with great help from Head-fi, ofcourse), and now is the turn of my desktop. I've mustered up enough cash to allow me to do this. Call it coincidently, but I've been spending the maximum hours in a day on my desktop.
Breakdown of time spent on desktop daily:
My current set-up isn't gonna be hitting any charts, but here it goes:
Asus Xonar DX
Sonic Gear Evo 7 2.1 Speakers
What I am now looking for a complete upgrade of the sound in all aspects (dynamic range, distortion handing, detail, bass, speed, surround etc.).
I prefer a 2.1 configuration.
I'm considering either going for a speaker that offers that quality of sound for my price range ($400),
Would this be enough? If so, what are my options? Please note, availability might be an issue, since I am in India.
Also, is it necessary that I go for an amp?
Things to consider:
Although my room is huge, I sit miserably close to the speakers i.e. about 1.5 - 2 feet away
