I'm looking for the best pair of active speakers available under $500 for my desktop PC and after a fair amount of research have narrowed the choices down to two models: Swan M200MkIII Behringer TRUTH B2031A They'd be hooked up directly into my PC soundcard, no subwoofer. I'd be primarily using them for listening to music and sometimes watching movies. While they're both well reviewed, I'm having a hard time picking one over the other. Looking around the web I've found one or two claims that the M200MkIII speakers are better and then a few others claiming the B2031A speakers are better, but I haven't found any detailed comparisons of the two. If they were the same price I'd pick the Swans because they look better and seem to have a slightly better reputation, but at $100 more (M200MkIII = $480, B2031A = $385) I figured I should ask the experts first. So can anyone recommend one model over the other and explain how it's better? In terms of specifications, is there a clear winner? I'm particularly interested to know how they compare in terms of bass and overall clarity/detail. Thanks!
