Need a little audio help..

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

State your budget! (Set an absolute maximum or give a relative maximum with + x amount if it will be amazingly better).
-I have a budget of about $1500.

State your music tastes
-I love everything except for country. So I would enjay a good all around system.

State what perks are highly desirable (low impedance, heavy bass, excellent for gaming etc..)
-The most desirable perk would have to be heavy bass.

State what products you already have and are planning on using with your recommended item (state whether you have an amp if you're looking for headphones with high impedance for example)
-I don't have any products except for some Samsung ear buds that come with a S3.

State how you are going to use the item (e.g. out-and-about, at the gym, at home, PC / console, gaming, music etc). The more detail in this, the better.
-I would like a relatively portable sound system that has ample amounts of bass and doesn't compromise elsewhere. Basically i am looking for a system that can be used for house parties and then can be moved back into my room to be connected to my laptop.

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 (like Amazon or ebay).
-I live in the united states of america and i prefer to shop on amazon because i have amazon prime. But if you cant find your recomended item on amazon newegg or ebay will work too.

I know you answered all the questions, but those questions are geared towards some one picking out a computer sound system ($50-$200). When dropping $1,500 you should be going to stores and auditioning equipment. You can read reviews of equipment to see what interests you, then listen and compare.

A technique I've used successfully is to audition the speakers (for example) that you are interested in, then ask to hear something that sounds better and costs 50% more. Then something that costs 50% less. That way you get to learn to hear the subtle differences in the way speakers can sound.

I'd also suggest that a vintage amp/ integrated amp from the late 1970's to early 1980's will offer the most bang for the buck. (Ebay, USAudio Mart or AudiogoN for online shopping.).

Sounds like you want that "booming" bass, so figure on a sub woofer too.
