Been thinking about getting a pair of bookshelf speakers for my desktop. Budget is $300 or less. Big desk, but speakers will still be close about 3-4 feet away from ears. Will probably stick with passive bookshelf instead of active in case amp craps out. I would prefer a mostly flat frequency, do not want piercing highs at this nearfield close range. May eventually add a dayton subwoofer, but wifey no likey boom boom and my room room right next to her office.
Some choices I'm thinking of: pioneer sp-bs22-lr, behringer b2030p or b2031p, ascend cbm-170se
Thoughts? Recommendations? What's your setup?
