I've got a post a few topics down about needing a 2.1 setup for my computer.
I'm researching through a bunch of suggestions and articles, and I'm interested in a pieced-together solution. I like the look and the size of the audioengine a2. Deskspace is at a premium for a while and I think something small like that would be great. Some larger monitors would be great, but the smaller size of the a2 is intriguing. I would imagine that speakers of that size could benefit from a sub. As $200 is about where I need my budget to be, I'm thinking that a budget friendly sub might be the Dayton Audio SUB-800. I'm thinking that I might have a very passable and compact system put together with these two things?
How do you think these might play together? Do I need something like a t-amp to run all this together? Or would it be best just to run the source signal to the sub and then hook up the Audioengines to the sub?
I do wish I had a control pod or something so i could control master volume without using my computer, or something that I could plug my inears into as well. Are there items that I could add on that would give me that kind of control/interface?
