So, I was eyeing a set of Swan M10 speakers but they are out of stock.
Ive found some alternatives and I want some input about which one to choose.

So far ive found the:


 Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 Channel Speakers Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 Channel Speakers
Swan D1080MkII08
And lastly the Swan D1010MkII08

Im really interested in the Swan M1080MkII08 set but the problem is getting those would bleed my wallet REALLY close to the limit for this month. I wont starve or be financially screwed if I get the 1080s, but I wont be able to put money into savings or have as much wiggle room as usual.
Are the 1010s still good speakers? Should I get the Klipsch set instead of the 1010s? Or should I just tighten my belt and get the 1080s? Would it be worth it?

Lots of questions. Sorry about that.

I would go for the D1080s. Better range and bass out of it.

What is your budget exactly?

Ok, Thanks.
The most I can possibly spend is $200. But the lower I can go the better. Im trying to spend less than $150 if I can, but I will spend up to $200 if its really worth it.
Im just looking for good quality 2 or 2.1 channel sound for music, movies and games. The speakers will also double as the primary sound system for my PS3. I don't want to use the speakers on the TV/Monitor im getting as they will be junk.

They are crazy nice Speakers. You will not be disappointed.
Even with onboard they sound great.
Ive got to go grab a Xonar in the next few weeks though or ill go mad.

I got a Xonar DS for $40 (after rebate) coming from Amazon Thursday. It was all I could afford with the money from my portion of our tax return, after the speakers.


I tried to time it to all arrive at the same time, but Lockwaresystem got the M10 to me real fast. Ordered on Sunday and got it Tuesday. Now I gotta bring my DAC out to work cause I don't want to have to listen to em on the onboard.

Come now.
Help me decide between the D1080s, D1010s, and the M10s.
Its mainly between the M10s and the D1080s.
I expect the 1080s are better than the M10s overall but the M10s have a tad bit more base. Would that be a safe assumption?
Of the 3 which should I choose?

Essentially yes. They can still produce enough bass if equalized properly, but it's not exactly the cleanest bass like that either. It starts getting a little muddy with the lows and mids, because it can't extend that low and still trying to reproduce the mid range.

I would only go for the D1010s if you don't have the space for the D1080s. The M10s if you absolutely need 2.1 system. The D1080s if you don't mind dropping $100-200 on another sub later on.

Alright. Thanks.
So the 1010s are out seeing as I have room for the 1080s.
And im not all that interested in getting another sub down the road. I crave good sound quality, but im not enough of an audiophile to want to configure my own speaker set. For now I am content to buy pre-built and pre-configured speakers. I may mix and match or build from scratch in the future, but for now my budget is somewhat strict and I cant justify spending almost $200 on a 2 channel set of speakers that will just want another $150 later on to feel completed. That will be like a splinter in my brain.

Looks like ill be getting the M10s. Thank you very much!
