2.1 speaker help.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Atm im am currently looking at the edifier s730 and the swan m50w for new computer speakers. But i am wondering if I can get 2.0 monitor speakers and a seperate sub that will out preform those two setups for the same amount of money.

Can anyone suggest a good 2.0 monitor speakers and a seperate sub that will outpreform the edifiers or swan m50w ?

I'd say check out m-audio, but you're getting into real money there. It depends on how much you want to spend.

What you can get from m-audio in that range won't out perform the systems you listed. Buying individual monitors and subwoofer you're looking at around $1k and up.

Arggggg im so confused. I cant decide what to get.

I like alot of the studio monitors like the yamaha hs50m, m-audio bx5a, rokit 5 g2, and the mackie mr5 with a seperate sub maybe.

I also like the already set up 2.1's like the pro media 2.1, edifier s730, and the swan m50w.

The question is: what will give me better quality sound for 400$. An alreay set up 2.1 system or some studio monitors and a seperate sub? Alot of people recommended me to this sub: Dayton SUB-120 HT Series if i went the studio monitor + seperate sub route.

Listening is 60% hiphop 40% other. I also like to play first person shooters alot. and it needs to beable to plug in my azuzentech xfi-forte soundcard.

Any more suggestions would be appreciated.
