Note: I do understand that I can put together a set that will sound better for the same price, but that is not what I am looking for at the moment.
Also consider the M-Audio AV40 , The KRK Rokit G2 5s, and the Yamaha HS50s.
I have the M-Audio and they are excellent.
Might want to look at these too:
I wish I had researched it before... but I got these on a deal on Amazon and I have to admit that these AV40s are one of the best sounding speakers.. very very nice midrange but lacks in bass.
I did hear the Rokit G2 6 and they definitely better than the AV40. I have since heard very good things about the bx5a too. I am actually thinking of getting hold of used Rokit G2 6s infact.
Let us know what you decided on!
The a5's are too large for my needs. I have a small room. I think I'm going to settle on the a2's.
Thanks for everyone's help and opinions.
Dear community of A2 owners,
Could you please help to understand whether the background noise of my A2+ (recently bought) could be considered as normal. The noise is all the same regardless the connection (I've tried the USB one and the 3.5mm input one so far). The background noise is like the distant 'zzzzz' at the background of the normal 'ssshhh'. My worry is about the first component of it as it's distinctly heard along with the music when the latter is not set too loud. I've tried the power stabilizer, an other wall socket in the other room, the effect was still in place.
So, my question basically is that 'zzzzz' noise should be considered as normal? Right now, it is not being perceived so.
I've created few spectrograms (see below) with the self-describing names:
02 - the tweeter of left speaker
03 - the woofer of left speaker
04 - the tweeter of right speaker
05 - the woofer of right speaker
I have a problem where my right speaker buzzes when my cell phone is within a couple of feet.
Do you have any cell phones or cordless phones within 10 feet or so?
If so, try unplugging them or moving them further away.
