So, I'm building a cheap bedroom setup for my mp3 player/phone and am looking for any recommendations. The biggest room size I would move this to is ~15x20 ft. I'm attempting to stick in the $200 range but might be willing to go slightly higher. My current device is an iphone and since they got rid of the 30-pin it's a great opportunity to upgrade with a good explanation for my wife, I was using an old ihome dock because it was, "good enough." I'm sure some of you know how that goes :P
Right now I'm looking at:
Dayton Audio DTA-100a
Polk Monitor 30
This puts me at around $170. Initially I was looking at the Dayton b652s but I have a feeling that I'll be happier with the M30s. I have also looked at the APA150 amp but I doubt I would really put it to good use for this setup.
I do like the line out on the APA as that gives me more freedom when I decide to add a subwoofer and I won't have to worry about getting one with speaker level inputs and I don't like the idea of my source going through the sub first since I may actually use multiple sources (one thing I like about the DTA-100a so I can setup airplay but can also plug directly into the front when I'm charging)
Anyway, to the question: is this a decent setup for the money? I'm open to suggestions near my price range but I definitely don't want an amp much bigger than the APA150 so full-blown receivers are out. I also like the idea of the speakers being something I could move to a larger system as rears or something in the future.
