Hi, i'm new to the Forum,
 
I don't consider myself an audiophile but, as the majority of the people, i like to listen to music while i'm at the PC. So i'm considering buying a 2.0/2.1 set. Right now all i have is the soundcard, an Asus Xonar DGX, so i was wondering what you guys can recommend for under 200$. I'll be buying from Amazon and only from Amazon, that's because i'm from Venezuela, and Amazon is the only site that accepts Venezuelan Credit Cards (sad isn't). I did a little research and notice alot of users here recommend the M-audio Av40 or B5x-D2, other guys recommend the klipsch ProMedia or the Audioengine's A2. Also i got a little confused with the Powered Speakers/no amp situation. The Xonar DGX has a headphone amp so i'm don't know if i can use that with the mentioned speakers... So what would be the best choice? I'm open to other config recommendations... 
 
Thx in advance...

I´ve just bought the Audioengine A2, from Amazon.  When they arrive, I´ll post my impressions.
(Use the Line-out from the soundcard to connect the analog amplifier input)
Best regards !

The A2 arrived today !  Sound quality is much better than my former Edifier M3400, excepting for the "deep" bass.  No problem, I´ll plug the Edifier´s subwoofer to the  Audioengine free input. 
The best spent US$200,  ever !
