I am very much into my house/techno music where bass quantity/quality is important, as well as accurate representation of overall sound. I'm not a DJ/Producer but I want some top quality speakers anyway as an upgrade on my harmon kardon soundsticks. Why not. I'd like a pair that are great for near-field listening but could also fill a medium room for a little party at a push.
I would be like to hook them up to my laptop (latest macbook pro) or sometimes my mobile. I just noticed a thread where someone was specifying they needed USB input for their speakers. Why would that be the case? Can these kind of speakers not connect to laptops through the headphone jack? (As you can tell, I know nothing about speakers)
So far I have looked at the KRK Rokit RP6 G3, Adam F5 and the JBL LSR 305. The JBL seem to be the best value whereas the Adams seem to be the best quality, with the Rokits being somewhere in between. Can anyone help me pick please or suggest what I should be looking for? Should I go for the Rokits as they have a 6 inch woofer and can be bought for similar prices to the JBLs/Adams in the UK?
