although if you decided you do, i'd also suggest getting a sound card to get the best of your speakers unless you already do and it isn't listed in your sig rig.
No, I don't own them yet but they are number #1 on my list. I should probably update that to "pending purchase" lol....

well in any case getting a sound card together the speakers will give you a better listening experience.

how much did you want to spend on the monitors? it looks like about 200 bucks for the pair? You can get something MUCH better if you can stretch your budget a bit more. Plus you should be able to get all the cables at any music store or electronics store. I would recommend looking at something like these:

My friend has a small studio and for the price these things have done him VERY well in any mixing and mastering situation. But for pure listening, these will also be great.

Mrsmiles is right with a sound card. that will also help you plenty.

I can recommend the BX5a. With proper placement and isolation they provide very audible bass. Not boom-y, but it's enough to mess up my mouse sensor when it's loud enough.

These will help you a great deal as well.

Yeah those look great! I might stop by the local guitar center to check some out in person. I'll be sure to update this thread with unboxing pics of whatever monitors I end up with.

My old roommate had a pair of these and they were surprisingly nice.

KRK Rockit 8

We recorded some vocals and guitar tracks with them and they were very good. I really enjoyed them for listening to music as well. They aren't to the caliber of what I listen to now, but I would say they're definitely nice desktop monitors.

Swan M1 on my desktop for playback with my Line6 POD HD Desktop (Which I love) and I have Swan Diva 6.2F in my home theater system which I currently use for most music listening. I will soon have some Harbeth HL5 or Kudos Cardea C30 for a music listening system.

I found the Swan M1s to be very true to the guitar tonal qualities and frequency range and I really like the sound of it. They're also excellent music listening speakers.
