Need desktop sound set up help!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Budget: $200, more if it's really good ($400 is the max)
State your music tastes: All sorts of stuff, from 70s to j-pop to electronic to Red Hot Chili Peppers.
State what perks are highly desirable: Mainly for music - rarely play games. Have a headset for mic calls. Youtube videos. TV shows.
State what products you already have and are planning on using with your recommended item: No sound card or anything at the moment - I have a pair of AIO 2.0 speakers, looking for an upgrade.
State where you live and offer some sites that are known for having good prices / being reputable so we can help recommend you products in your country's currency: I live in Vancouver, Canada, so NCIX, Memoryexpress, Bestbuy.


Currently look at Audioengine A2 with the ASUS Xonar DG, or Audioengine A5. I do value it's looks (simplicity!) so I def like them for that.
I live in an apartment and won't be playing music loudly all the time, which makes me shy away from the A5 although on the rare occasion it'd be great.

Thanks for any help, and let me know if I missed any information!

Cliffs:
Want a $200 set of speakers/sound card combo (or whatever is best). Top of the list atm is Audioengine A2 with ASUS Xonar DG.
