Looking for some new speakers

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Alright I want to replace my current speakers. My budget is $150 I want either a 2.0 or 2.1 speaker system.

You could find a used pair of Klipsch Pro Media 2.1 around that price, just look around on Craigslist/Ebay/OCN Marketplace. Probably going to be the best bang for your buck at that price.

If you need bass, the Klipsch Promedia 2.1 is a good option.

You can do better than the Promedia. Years ago they were good, now they are subpar quality.
I would never recommend them anymore, new or used.

This will be better choice for you.
Lepai Tripath TA2020 Class-T Hi-Fi Audio Amplifier $22.80
Dayton Audio B652 6-1/2" 2-Way Bookshelf Speaker Pair $39.80

Lots of people here recommend this setup. With your Xonar DX, sound will be fantastic.

I see people post those speakers quite abit. I was thinking about getting them but I was going to get a different amp. But that amp looks pretty good enough to me.

There are others, some with headphone amp and beefier amps.
Topping TP21 Class T Digital Amplifier with Headphone 25 WPC $109.50
Dayton Audio DTA-100a Class-T Digital Amplifier 50 WPC $99.90

You can get different speakers too. Endless possibilities. Sucks for me being in Canada... as shipping is nearly $45 + duty taxes.... we get crap stuff.
