2.0/2.1 speaker choices in Canada

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My budget is about $300 give or take and I'm currently looking at Audioengine 5s but I'm wondering if there are any other options out from a Canadian retailer that I should consider?

Budget: $300
Purpose: Gaming + Music
Restrictions: Canadian retailer only (I dislike having to deal with expensive shipping & brokerage fees crossing the U.S. / Canadian border)

Any suggestions will be appreciated

Audioengine 5s wouldn't be a bad choice. I have them a I'm happy with them. I mainly bought them for convinience of not having to deal with an amp, I wanted a good and a simple solution.

I did some research on the Corsair SP2500 set and ordered them. Free shipping from the above source while everyone else wanted $40.

I realize the SP2500 isn't respected by the audiophiles here but all the reviews say it's pretty much the best 2.1 set for the price.
