Configured properly, the AV 40's sound a little better. Albeit this is with bass almost removed from them since I can't stand speaker systems without even a small sub-woofer.
Even a basic speaker system can get a huge improvement with a proper amp that has a high-pass filter for the speakers, and a sub-woofer properly configured with a low-pass filter.
Case and point, never rely on your speakers for bass unless you are willing to sacrifice the rest of your sound quality. Self-powered subs can easily be found for $50 used. I'm running an old 100 W Dahlquist that is easily over 15 years old that my grandma didn't want anymore. That thing sound better than most $300+ sub-woofers you find out there now.
