I know that this is a forum more for the Home theater systems, BUT I am sure that you guys care about your computer audio as well.


Just bought Logitech Z2300 for $80 on sale.

Not impressed at all. Too much bass, no mids ... as a musician, I need quality sound. These don't cut it.


Anyone has any suggestions on PC speakers under $150 ?


thank you.


P.S. I know $150 is nothing, BUT I am not looking for loud .... looking for quality. Crispness.

I have my computer connected to a 5 year old Onkyo receiver and some Energy bookshelf speakers I found on craigslist. I'm pretty confident they're better than your logitech solution.


You could probably go that route if you're willing to shop for receivers and speakers.


But the M-Audio solution is nice solution and it comes with the cables you'd need for your soundcard.

Been using my Dell Speakers with Sub that came with the PC for years. Kinda fine with sound but being a musician I know it's lacking a lot of crisp and quality. At a good price upgraded to Logitech 2300 which sucks. Sound is simply louder ... that's all.


I don't have much space for the speakers but I do want quality sound.


2 models I am looking into are


1) Swan M200MkII

2) Swan D1080MkII


Any other suggestions? Will I hear the difference between these 2 models? Price difference is around $100.


thank you.


P.S. Not looking for major bass. Just want a nice thump (no floor shaking), good mids and highs. Quality. I listen to dance, jazz, pop, etc music.

You could get a cheap amp and some good bookshelf speakers-- maybe this plus Pioneer BS-41s, which would come to $170. Just run 1/8 inch to RCA to the amp. Or get a cheap stereo receiver like afro said. The Pioneers might lack bass depending on how large your setup is.
