How to protect audoengines or any monitor per say

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hello,

I own audioengine2 speakers. I run them on sony laptop on foobar with wasapi. No DAC yet because in India USB DAC is a very niche market and hence very expensive.

Until now i was living in a dorm , but in future i will be moving to another city and will have roommates.

I have two questions..

1) There will be parties on weekends, my audioengines will be on desk with fragile tweeters and woofers in open. So How to protect them. Are there any grills of some sort.?

2) Is it worth buying a DAC yet, because in India,DAC are very expensive. I spotted a Fiio 7 online with MRP of INR 7000($180). That is just around i paid for A2s.

 

Thank You

See if you can find a Hifimediy Sabre USB DAC on ebay. Good budget level DAC that could improve the sound over laptop output (depending on the SQ of the laptop motherboard).

I would either lock the door to your room during parties or put the speakers out of harms way.  Speaker grills don't do that much to protect your speakers from liquids and such.

I would just hide them during parties.

Put them up on a shelf somewhere out of "accidental" range. That might work better anyway. Most of the time, we have our speakers setup for ear level for sitting. Getting them up in the air would work better for a party with many people standing/walking around.

Get a Fiio D3, like myself (supposing your laptop has optical out) :
