hi all, i was recommended here by fellow head-fi members, as they noted that there was much more discussion about speakers here than over there.
first, some basics: i am still a student, and am looking to get a pair of bookshelf speakers (not too large), which will be hooked up to an amp, which in turn will be connected to my computer.
i was told (and will probably buy in the near future) that the topping TP21 is good for my budget (originally <$100 total) because i wanted to be able to choose between outputting to speakers as well as headphones
i have since then decided to stretch over my budget (maybe spend $50-$70 on speakers to keep me within $150 total for speakers+amp), since it would be near impossible to find decent speakers to pair with the amp for about $30
i am planning on buying used at this point because there would be no way for me to stay within budget otherwise. i will be moving in 7 weeks, but hope for some input now (and also when I am ready to buy), so that I can learn more about the options available to me (as I am completely new to this area of electronics- i was more into and still love building computers)
tl;dr do you have suggestions for used speakers that can be picked up in the $50 range on ebay/craigslist/wherever else? i'm not particularly picky (as i have learned not to be when being in this price range), but i will note that i am not a bass head
edit: i will be moving to manhattan in 7 weeks
