I have an HK 3490 I'm not using and I'd like to upgrade the M-Audio AV40s I'm using as they dont due low frequency very well(fall off at 80Hz). I'd rather not use a subwoofer due to space and they would also be for near feild use. Most used for gaming and Netflix streaming.
I have a Creative Labs X-Fi Titanium sound card so i can Toslink or RCA to the receiver Since its for stereo use I dont think it would matter much.
I was looking at Definitive TEchnologies ProMonitor 1000 to the Bowers and Wilkins 685Bs. I'm looking for something that sounds flat and can pick up somewhere around the 60 Hz range. I really only have Best Buy around me to demo stuff which is a problem.
I use Hsu HB-1 bookshelves as my desk speakers and have been really impressed with them. They are listed at 60Hz +/- 2dB but, they have good bass well below that. As a comparison, I also have some Focal Chorus 706V bookshelves that are 55Hz +/- 3dB and the Hsu speakers have much, much strong bass.
