Narrow Down Desktop Speaker Choice
Hi, My second pair in a row of M-Audio AV 40s has died and I'm looking to replace those for use with my home computer. I did enjoy the AV40s, they had reasonably good sound for what they cost and how I used them, but am now looking to upgrade to something better (and better lifespan).
Reading online reviews because i don't have any place around for auditioning these, I'm hoping to get some opinions on the following:
* Paradigm Shift A2 (I have Paradigm Atoms that I have enjoyed)
* PSB PS1
* Emotiva Airmotiv 4S or 5S
* Vanatoo Transparent One
In my current desktop situation, it's a shallow space and the speakers will be very near or against the wall, how much will that affect the Emotivas or the Vanatoo?
Appreciate hearing your thoughts and experience!!
