Haha yes back to the actual topic.
I don't listen to as much music through headphones as I used to. Most of my job involves driving around so if I'm listening to music, its through speakers.
But I too am looking to eventually invest in a set of good desktop speakers for low volume listening (I live in a condo) but also sound great loud.
Indeed, I worked in resturants so I got into speakers kinda. I only got as far as listening to my car speakers well enough to know that they sucked xD, they sounded like a cheap Mad Dog, very laid back overlly forward mids. Semi sufficent bass, tight to an extent with a little fatness.
Non the less I might look into that Horhn Kit
