I wanted to build myself a great 2.1 setup for my computer. I had planned on buying the DGX and going optical into my Harmon Kardon AVR146 at first but now I am thinking of just running active speakers. I was looking at the Audioengine A5+ with the S8 subwoofer but now I'm second guessing myself. Anyone have experience with either or both of these? Figured I better ask you wonderful folks. I could get the P4 passive Audioengines and run it with my AVR, but they are 4ohm speakers and my AVR is only rated at 8ohms. I've read into my specific model and people say going below 8ohms isn't a very good idea :/ The P4 has an amp that was built specifically to power them and it has a decent headphone amp built into it, so that may be a viable option. But overall price point for the 2 doesn't seem very good compared to other options, unless someone can convince me otherwise
Anyway, my friend has a set of Infinity Primus 250 that I can get for a little over $100 that I could totally rock with the AVR. I just want a great front stage that will accurately reproduce the movies/music/video games that I throw at it. My options are very open right now. Getting the Primus 250s would save me lots of money to throw at my subwoofer. I live in an apartment currently and wont really be able to let my subwoofer shine much regardless but I've looked into HSU and found a hybrid that would let me run sealed or ported. That may help reduce to vibration and keep it tame until I get my own house and don't have to worry about being too loud.
Any input on my predicament would be wonderful
