Hello!

      I've been looking at Head-Fi.org, and I love this place's helpful community of audiophiles who want to help people get the best listening experience. As I said in the title, I'm searching for a good desktop speaker in the $100 price range, and currently I have two in mind.

 

- Swan M10s 

 

- Harman Kardon Sound Sticks III http://www.harmanaudio.com/search_browse/product_detail.asp?urlMaterialNumber=SOUNDSTICKS3AM-Z&status=

 

I can't hear the finest of details (1 ear hearing loss), but I'd like something that would be good for listening to things ranging from, "Sweet Caroline" to "The World is Ours", and hopefully a strong bass as well so I can listen to the very occasional dub-step (don't judge D:). I'd love to hear your suggestions, or which of the two is better to buy.

 

Thanks and have a nice day :D

Lepai LP-2020A+

AND

Pioneer BS21
OR
Micca MB42X

These are both better speakers than the Daytons described in this review: http://www.cnet.com/news/build-your-own-desktop-stereo-for-under-70/

For strong bass, save up for a sub smily_headphones1.gif

 I have the Swan M10 and these speakers are incredibly musical.... They scale up with a great dac and a pre amp ...I dont know if another speakers around one hundred dollars can scale up so easily and marvellously.... If you have not a good dac and a pre/amp and a good cable interconnect, you dont know how extraordinary are the ratio price/ quality of these speakers.... buy them and in the future if you buy some other element they will scale up.... best regards

 

p.s. i prefer now the swan to the hifiman  he 400
