I know, it's been a while since i posted anything here. I was busy with school/work so I haven't had much time to do much. I was considering putting in some decent sound to my computer. I have as of right now, (get ready to laugh.. ) a pair of Creative SBS20's. Being the poor sap I am, i decide to hop on craigslist to search for some deals. First, a little about my environment. it's a small room about 12x12 or so. Noise level is moderate I have fish tank running in the background but mostly quiet. So i can see that it's already not fit for a 10k system . I am looking for a speaker system with clear lows, mids and highs. An all around good speaker. I am not sure if I need studio monitors or bookshelf speakers. I am looking for a speaker that could fill up the room nicely. From my understanding, the only reason I am not cosidering the studio monitors is that they are for recording studio and a near field speakers so i should be close when listening. I don't necessarily have to be sitting at my computer for optimal sound. My max budget for such a system is about 200. I found:
-Mirage M-90i's - $95
-Infinity SM102 - $100
-Tannoy Reveal 6 Studio Monitors - $200
-Paradigm 3SE - $150
I really liked M-audio, but as I said, it's a studio monitor so I am not sure if that would fit my needs. Also, It should be easy to connect to my computer as I am you could say electronically challenged... I have the 1/8 jack but can just pick up an adapter if need be. Most Importantly, are the fair prices and I am getting i good deal? or Is the something else I should consider? I just found a 1/8 jack to RCA so if it has those connections, it would be easier.
Would greatly apreciate your input.
