I am currently in the market for some quality (budget) powered speakers and have pretty much narrowed my search down to the Airmotiv 5 and the Audioengine 5+ (though I am open to other suggestions). I would like some help deciding between the two.
The main use will be for listening to music but I will also use them as computer speakers for gaming, watching movies and maybe some mixing/recording. I pretty much listen to metal and rock music exclusively. Many posts and reviews I see say that the Airmotivs blow the Audioengines out of the water in terms of clarity and overall sound. However, I have also read that the Audioengines may be better suited for rock/metal music due to fuller sounding mids/bass.
I am really curious how the Airmotivs handle heavy metal/hard rock when directly compared to the audioengines and also how the two speakers compare when watching movies/gaming etc.
If anyone has some experience with either of these (or even better, both of these) speakers and could give me some advice, that would be much appreciated.
