Hi, it's my first time here at AVS forums, and I apologize for if I am posting at the wrong section of the forums, but seeming that this community specializes in speakers, whereas Head-fi is more into headphones, I figure that this forum would be the best place to start.
I am looking for a good 2.0 or whatever speaker setup for my computer. Back at Head-fi, I have narrowed it down to the BX5 D2 and Audioengine 5+, but here, what would you guys recommend?
I wish to use it for primarily rock, D&B, instrumental (post-rock, epic game and movie soundtracks, orchestral, etc.), and jazz, though for any other music to not sound terrible or muddy. Bass is not an issue, but it should be at least present and true to the music, and should to cover at least 120 degrees of the room facing straight with loud enough volume to reach up to 3.5m of the room.
Bonus: I am also debating whether to get the FiiO E10 to provide better quality to my headphones (and possibly speakers going from the line out), or a better sound card. If you can help me with these decisions, that would be very helpful for me. Also, is it possible to combine a 2.1 speaker setup (ex. AV40 + subwoofer) into one 3.5mm jack that I can insert into a line out in the FiiO E10?
