After using a zeppelin air in conjunction with a macbook for a year i got rather dissatisfied and longed for a more traditional 2.0 setup to go with my computer. I use my philips x1 at my bedside.
So I went back to look what options are available as 2.0 sets. Most studio monitors are out for me, although its convenient that they are selfpowered i dont want 2 volume controls.
But then i discovered the adam audio artist 5 that has an option to use one volume control for both units and as an extra bonus it has a usb port to directly connect to my macbook.
Only thing is that i dont think these are sold in pairs and if that is the case then its a bit above my budget 2x 280.
My second option is the audioengine a5+ (400 euro) although that one doe snot come with an usb connection and i really would like that.
I dont need bluetooth (degradation of sound) or airplay (mostly just a mono speaker).
Any comparisons or other advice/tips would be appreciated.
