Hi, I saw a few speakers on sale in a shop.
Klipsch RB-41 II $399
Energy CB20 $489
Cambridge Audio SR30 $299
Are any of these good? and do they need amps?
just from doing a simple google search on those klipsch i got the following:
You can tell from a simple google search that these are passive speakers so yes an amp is needed. My intent is not to be mean but please read the product information on the company's website before you post here. To clarify, I'm referring to your question about "do they need amps?".
this is where cel4145 plugs his Ascend speakers lol (just messing with you man :D ). I actually hear the Ascends are really nice though.
do you care if they're active (the amp is built in so they're powered) or passive (require an amp)?
I prefer active speakers for my computer mainly just because I don't want to have to pick out an amp too. The following speakers are active and get great reviews:
Also if you can find the Swan M200MKiii they get really good reviews too and run around $430 USD but they're a chinese company so you can probably find a better price given how much closer china or order from a chinese site.
**Update** They have an australian site: http://www.swanspeakers.com.au/products_multimedia.html
Doesn't really matter, preferably active.
Is the Audioengine A2 good for 240$ including postage?
