Did some searching around but I'd like to get some opinions. Being a college student with not so much money and space, powered monitors seem like the best option for some decent sound (besides headphones which I already own, pair of AKG k701s). Will powered monitors still image well if I place them a few feet apart and sit on the couch 6-8 feet away? Will they produce a decent sound stage at that distance? Mostly looking for a speaker that will be very versatile at this point. Something that I can sit down while relaxing and listen to some jazz or classical and later in the night turn up the volume and rock out to some metal.
I was looking at the Audioengine A5's but for a little bit more I can get into something like the KRK Rokits which I think will get louder more easily and be more dynamic than the Audioengines.
