I'm looking to replace my current cyber acoustics 2.1 system and am considering the Audioengine 5+ and Swan M200Mkiii. I will be using them on my desk with my computer for listening to pandora (192Kbps)-mainly pop music, youtube videos, movies, and online tv shows. I was considering both 2.0 and 2.1 systems, but am leaning towards a nicer 2.0 system. I have a 450 budget and space on my desk for speakers as large as the swans. I was also looking at the A2, M-audio BX5D2 and Emotiva pro airmotiv 4. I've heard the swans sound the best, but I'm worried they will be too unforgiving to my fairly bad sources. Which system would you recommend for this setup/usage?
