I want to connect my computer to a Dynaudio BM5A MKII. I like it because it hits quite low for its size and I don't have to bother with an amp. I have been allotted a small space near the corner of my living room that doesn't lend itself to a stereo setup.
I need volume control and XLR out. Oh yea and I need it to be small and under $200. A used Emotiva XDA is perfect except for the size. The Matrix Mini i is perfect except for the price. The wife requires aesthetics. A Peavey USB P would almost do the trick but it doesn't have volume control. A remote is a big bonus. Also feel free to recommend any other sub $700 setup that will fit in a cubic foot. About 99% of my listening is spotify so I don't want my equipment to be so good that I hear audio compression quality issues. I want it to hit as low as possible without sounding bad. Subs are out of the question.
