Soooo, long story short...I bought 8 years ago the Bose Companion 3 series II speakers (since I had store credits and didn't have to pay anything really) because I needed something to connect to my TV, laptop, cell phone, etc, since I had nothing else yet. I wanted to upgrade my audio gear (mainly used for music and some gaming), so I bought the Audio-Technica M40x's, this are reaaaaaally nice, I like them a lot, but since I use my PC to stream music from Spotify (no FLAC or other lossless format yet), I hear some hiss and static noise I didn't like. Because of this, I bought an DAC/AMP: Fx-Audio DAC x6, should arrive today, so no test/hearing yet. So now, to the tittle...should I replace Bose speakers with studio monitors? I really never was impressed whatsoever with the Bose, but would the DAC can imply an improvement or go straight with the monitors? My options for the monitors are: M-Audio AV32 Mackie CR3 Presonus Eris 3.5 Edifier R1280DB Pioneer DJ DM-40 (not studio monitors-kind, thou). I know there are a lot of other options, but this ones are the only ones available to me. Thanks for the help!
