I'm currently looking for new speakers for use on my pc. I plan on seating them close to me, about 3-4 feet from my ears. First I searched around and decided to go with bookshelf speakers + T amp setup but then found out about power monitor speakers (ones like Behringer MS16).
My budget is around $150 for speakers; I'll find money for T amp if it ends up being that way. Room size is 12x12 feet. I have cheap 2.1 pc speakers right now and I use them for gaming and music (rock/rap/classical/pop, pretty much all types of music here and there. I do like at least some bass though). I don't have the volume on loud so the speakers should be find for low-medium volume listening.
some power speakers I see people suggesting
M-Audio Studiophile AV30/AV40
KRK RP5G2 Rokit G2
Polk Audio TSi100, polk monitor 30, polk r150, polk r15
Cambridge Audio S30
The list of speakers isn't what I have my mind set on, just some I see people talking about. Feel free to suggest anything. I don't mind which type of speakers as long as it fits the situation. Thanks!
