Good set of powered speakers for computer

1. Powered will be used "mostly" to hook up to my computer.
2. I will only be about 3 1/2 feet away
3. Would like them to be Bluetooth capable. But wifi would be a bonus. I could do with out these if I had to but would prefer these features.
4. I can go 2 or 2.1 but if 2 I would like a sub jack so I can add a sub down the road if need be.
5. 70% music 30% games.
6. They need to sound good at low volumes as I listen to the music a low volumes while I work most of the time.
7. Id like to try and stay under $500ish

I listen to mostly instrumental music. Soundtracks ect. Think Lord of the Rings or Game of Thrones for example.

My initial thoughts were edifer s350db or edifer R2000pro but the 2000 has no sub jack. But maybe there is 'enough' base there and no need for sub.

If there is 'enough" bass I dont "HAVE" to add a sub I just thought the option would be nice just in case.

Thank you ahead of time for any and all opinions.

Music room: Focal 906 Aria, sub Rythmik L12, AVR Pioneer VSX 831
TV room: SVS system 3X SCS-01s L-R & C, / 2X sbs-01s surrounds / 20-39pci sub.. AVR Dennon X3400

Add a sub (A2), or not (A5), your choice.

Hard to go wrong with AudioEngine... Edifier is supposed to be a great alternative but I have not heard them personally.

Go with the A5. In my experience, the A2 bass rolls out really high, higher than you would want to run a sub.

In the A5 price range, you might also consider the Swans M200 MKIII.

I haven't heard them, but on paper The Sixes from Klipsch seem to fit your requirements except for WiFi. Link:

Much better performance, flexibility, expandability, and bang for the buck going with:

1.
Mini-amp, size of a paperback book, with Bluetooth, subwoofer preout and built in DAC that you connect to your computer via USB:
https://www.amazon.com/SMSL-AD18-Amp.../dp/B071JN7GXN

2.
Passive real speakers: down-ported and smooth, totally non-fatiguing, with 6.5" woofers that go down to 45Hz so a sub is optional not mandatory:

But does it include a crossover?

Not absolutely vital, bit it'd be nice.

I tend to doubt it, at that price.

I'd second the JBL... the 305's are very nice and I use them in a bedroom for a 2.0 setup hooked to the headphone output of my TV...

Have a question and want it answered in podcast format?

One more option to consider would be the Kef Eggs. They are powered with USB/optical in and have BT. They also have a sub out option. Pretty easy on the eyes too and way below your budget at AC4L.com, especially if you like blue. Frees up $ for sub then.

I do have these and love them with a nice, tight, 8" sub, and using them as PC speakers.

I use these for my PC along with a standard DAC. Easy setup and excellent value. You wont believe the quality of sound for the price. It kills all 'PC' speakers.

All the reviews Iv read on these are really good. What dac are you using?

I also hear there is a audible hiss that some from some of them. Do you have the hiss?

The hiss is likely to be noise floor from the powered speaker, not the DAC. I can confirm that on the 305’s, there is a very slight hiss you can barely hear at about 6 inches if the gain/volume is set at max... below that you don’t hear it... I should probably turn the speaker volume down and use more gain from the TV’s headphone jack, but it was easier to max out the volume on both speakers to get them to match, lol. The result is that the tv volume is usually at 9/10 out of 100... oh well! Works fine!

After doing some research I think I have settled on the Vanatoo T0.
Now I'll start looking for a small sub.
I want to thank everyone for their time and suggestions.........Thanks guys.

I use the SDAC.
The hiss can be heard if you put your ear right close to it. From seating position you wont hear it.
If you have the room they have the 308 for bigger woofers if you dont want the addition of a sub.

Looking for powered garage speakers, I had the LSR308s here for a weekend and took them back. However, I recently did a review on the Kali LP6s at $300

https://www.avsforum.com/forum/89-sp...-6-review.html

because I bought them and kept them. Little cones and domes are not generally my thing, but these are really quite good. Like you, I'd prefer a sub out, but after using them for a few days, came to the conclusion that I really don't need them. I have a bunch of acoustic bass and double bass material and in my smallish 12 x 14 office, they do quite well without a sub when place a couple feet from the front wall. The folks who engineered these speakers escaped from the asylum in Northridge, and they happen to be the very same folks who originally designed the 305 and 308s. These are a big improvement, IMO. These are designed as a studio monitor so no sub out and no remote, both I'd like, especially the remote. At least, in addition to 1/4 and XLR, they have RCAs as a token to the consumer market.

The folks who engineered these speakers escaped from the asylum in Northridge, and they happen to be the very same folks who originally designed the 305 and 308s. These are a big improvement, IMO. These are designed as a studio monitor so no sub out and no remote, both I'd like, especially the remote. At least, in addition to 1/4 and XLR, they have RCAs as a token to the consumer market.
Very nice Scott those look great..............You said in your post in the link that you were going to a/b these at some point.
Did you ever get around to that?
I have found out for myself personally that is the only "true" way to compare speakers.......cuz your brain forgets 99% of what you heard if you have more than a few seconds in between listing to different speakers.
I did a shoot out last year with 3 different speakers and tried to do it with out the a/b switch at first. Then get the switch and it made 100,000,000% difference.
Any way Id like to hear your results if you did that test.

Music room: Focal 906 Aria, sub Rythmik L12, AVR Pioneer VSX 831
TV room: SVS system 3X SCS-01s L-R & C, / 2X sbs-01s surrounds / 20-39pci sub.. AVR Dennon X3400

Thanks. It's probably a little hard to AB given that all the rest of my speakers are passive so I haven't had time to figure out a way to do it. Plus, the speakers are sufficiently different that it isn't all that necessary to compare in that manner.
