    New Swan D1080MKII 08 doesn't flex like the old version

    I just got the Swan D1080MKII 08 speakers in today and they look great and sound crisp and clear.  It definitely lacks bass even when the dial is maxed and my equalizer setting is set to high bass.  I know they aren't meant for bass but I'm definitely missing some the bass that my crappy 2.1...

    New Swan D1080MKII 08 lower channel doesn't flex like the old version?

    I just got the Swan D1080MKII 08 speakers in today and they look great and sound crisp and clear.  It definitely lacks bass even when the dial is maxed and my equalizer setting is set to high bass.  I know they aren't meant for bass but I wished it packed a little more punch.  I'll get a...

    Swan D1080 or KRK RP8 or M-audio AV40

    First I started by buying a Logitech z2300 system. I have thoroughly enjoyed the bass and the satelites were lacking. I had a problem with the sub rattling after about a year, and Logitech replaced them with the Z623s. The woofer especially does not compare to the one of the z623s. So that...

    Audioengine A5 vs. Swan D1080MKII 08 vs. ??? for party listening

    Hi! I'm looking for a new set of powered, 2.0 speakers to use with my Macbook Pro and Nuforce uDAC.  I've been using Creative T20s for years, and they've been great.  But I'm looking for something with an indisputably much nicer sound, and the ability to fill a room or two while still sounding...

    Audioengine A2s or Swan D1080MKII 08

    Which one sounds best?  Easy question, right?  From Mac laptop, hoping to spend $200/pair or less.  Audioengine has tons of reviews and the A2 is affordable for me.  A5 maybe if I stretch.  Swan I know little about but they get a few good reviews & comparably priced.  Swan also has some other...

    M-Audio AV40s or Swan D1080MkII08

    Man, it always draws down to uncertainty with me.  Anyways, I was about to go with the M-Audio AV40s the other day, but then I came across the Swan D1080MkII08s, which on Audio Insider are only about a $20 difference from the AV40s.  I did try and do some research but couldn't find any reviews...

    Swan d1080mkii 08 vs M50w vs H4

      Hi guys,   I've bite the bullet and bought the Swan d1080mkii to replace my Altec Lansing fx6021, got a great deal too at $199 AUD. I still have time to change the order and tempted at the M50w and H4. How do these compare with the H4 or M50w? From what I gather, H4 is one of the top...

    Swan D1080 IV vs M200MkII

    I want to get a pair of speakers for my PC and I've narrowed it down to these 2 sets of Swans. Is the performance of the M200MkII substantial enough to warrant the extra $100 over the D1080 IV?

    2.0 Speakers Compilation: Best for <$500

      I am on a quest to find the *best* set of 2.0 desktop speakers, and only 2.0 speakers. They must be active and self-powered, as subs are big, bulky and often overpowering.   I've been through dozens, and still haven't found the perfect pair.   Readers, I do hope this thread saves...
