Good Audio Setup for Music [£250($387)]
You could grab an Indeed TA2021 or Topping TP21 t-amp. One of those could power a set of passive home audio speakers, such as Wharfedale Diamond 10.1s. You could always add a subwoofer later on for more/deeper bass.
How would these compare to something like the M Audio BX5 D2 Studio Monitors? as don't know much about speakers in general.
Would there be any point looking at 'Computer Speakers' eg. (Klipsh ProMedia 2.1) or would they not produce anything like loudspeakers ?
Can't comment on the M-Audios. Haven't heard them.
The SB-Z (Sound Blaster Z) comes with a headphone amplifier and the same DAC chip (CS4398) as the Xonar DX & D1.
The SB-Z should improve the audio quality of the Z523 2.1 speakers.
I wont be using the Z523 when i upgrade, they sound terrible.
Do you have any recommendations for some speakers? cel4145 suggested the Wharfedale Diamond 10.1s.
It may be hard for people to recommend speakers for you. Prices are different from country to country and region to region, as well as what speaker models are available. The only reason I know about the Diamonds is because they are a UK brand that has been popular in the US, but cheaper there in the UK. You probably need to talk to people in the UK. You might try AVForums. They are a UK based Internet community.
I'm not that well versed enough in speakers to be able to recommend something.
I know zero about Wharfdale
I usually say to get some Polk Audio on sale.
Dalton Audio seems to have some well liked speakers, for a low price.
Check for a used receiver with 2.1 speakers, some people sell off nice audio stuff at a very fair price.
