I know there are a ton of recommendation threads on speakers. But I think my requirements are a little bit different.
One of my friends has a Bose Companion 20 and even though I'm not a Bose fan I fell in love with the volume control pod. I would just buy a pair of the Bose speakers but I would like something perhaps just a little bit cheaper.
My requirements are:
1. Volume Control Pod
2. About $100 max
3. Good sounding for size
Form factor is not very important but I would like it to be either 2.0, 2.1, or even a sound bar. I am using this with a pc with a triple monitor setup and it will be primarily for music, gaming, movies, etc. If I get a sound bar I would just mount it to the back of my triple monitor stand but that is probably the least favored form factor unless a small sound bar sounds really cool.
I would do a diy method if someone can recommend an amplifier that uses a volume control pod, and i have a lot of soldering and electronics experience so it can be very diy beyond hooking up speakers.
Thanks in advance for your help!
