Hey guys,

I've always been a headphones kind of guy but have been looking into getting a pair of speakers for casual listening and TV series. Now, I know that this area is just as deep as the headphones, so I'm asking you guys for help.

Let's just say that I have a budget of £200 and wanted a pair of speakers for the above mentioned uses. I listen to a varied selection of music so something balanced would be great. But hey, you're the experts so what would you recommend? redface.gif

M-Audio BX5's are a good option. I have the older bx5a's which are pretty good. If you're going to listen to music a lot I'd recommend a sub, but for casual use they're fine without.

By themselves they measure pretty flat down to at least 100hz. Of course that changes depending on where you put them. Overall I'm pretty happy with them for casual use.

I'm haven't tried out anything else in that price point though. I actually got some 'broken' ones for cheap and changed the power capacitors. That's why I got them thumb.gif.

I have to change the power capacitors on my bx8a's. Where did you pick some up? Was it hard? I got the speakers for free and one of them needs to have the capacitors changes out.

what should be the in-game audio settings with 2.0 speakers and xonar card? i read people have their settings as 5.1 in-game regardless, even though its only headphones or 2 speakers.
