2.1 speakers to pair with Asus Sonar Essence STX

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hi, I am considering a pair of good 2.1 speakers to go with my Essence STX sound card.

Currently stuck between Aego M/Soundsticks III/z2300/mx6021/Edifier S530D. What are you recommendations? Looking for something under 150 pounds, might stretch the budget to 170 pounds if it's worth the extra buck.

Well for a decent 5.1 system I will need to up my budget, but I don't really want to spend more than what I plan. If i get a 5.1 in my price range it wouldn't be that good so I might as well stick to 2.1 systems.

Klipsch Promedia? Hard to find those online.

I often recommend the Aego M, everyone who I've recommended it to on OCN and have gone on to buy them have been very happy with their purchase.

I hear about insufficient bass on Aego M. What's your viewpoint on this? I don't need boomy bass but a not too soft as well. :S

Also, can't find the klipsch promedia in best buy.

What's the build quality on the Klipsch Promedia 2.1 these days? I've been reading that it's nothing like in the past, and trashy components are being used instead of the olden builds!
