Audiophile Speaker - Mainly for PC and Consoles

#1Xtreme-VoidPosted 7/29/2014 5:01:06 AM
Please recommend audiophile quality speaker that can be easily use for PC and consoles.
I prefer the speaker to have audiophile quality sound and good look altogether.

Budget is massively important. What some might consider "audiophile" tier is spending like $75, others $500.

Choosing a speaker is really hard, there is various review for any one speaker.

This isn't the best place to ask, but you're going to want to get some passive bookshelf speakers with an amp to power them. The thread below is a decent starting place. The rest of that subreddit also has some good info.

This can range from $75 to 3000+ for a true audiophile experience

^that site beyond my comprehension, I need an easy plug and play set of speaker, thanks.

I heard Audioengine 5+ is good, the minus is it don't have a headphone jack, lack of bass.
Edifier S730 might be good, the minus is, is it really audiophile class speaker or just another MX6021 with higher power 200 vs 330 watt?

An amp with some decent speakers is the way to go. I'd avoid any 2.1 or 5.1 "PC" speaker system. Most of them are garbage.

Good quality sound =/ a very loud sound.
Good quality sound = the exact sound when the sound is created and intended to hear.

A combination of a loud sound with a quality sound is better of course.
