    Xonar D1 + BX5A

    Hello,   i've literally spent months doubting on what I was going to buy (it's great that I was able to find so much information here though), but I'm pretty confident I'm going for a Xonar D1 in combination with BX5a deluxe speakers. This should prove to be a considerable upgrade from...

    Active Powered speakers or Bookshelf Speakers with Amp?

    I'm on +- the same budget and I'm seriously considering buying M-Audio Studiophile AV-40's. The only thing I'm in doubt about is the sound card I'll be combining them with.   edit: I've also read good things about Audioengine A5's, but they might be over your budget (pretty confident that...

    Deciding on a new setup

    Hi,   I am considering to spend some money on decent computer speakers. I already have Mission M71's, attached to a decent Sony amp which I now only use to play CD's and provide sound for my TV. Because I can no longer hook them up to my PC (different rooms), I am looking for quality...
