After having spend a year reading and trying out headphones and IEMs, I am pretty content with the collection I have now. However my TV is still hooked up to a JBL soundbar that is terribly mono and it annoys me that my girlfriend is always listening to music on them. So I am looking for a set of speakers to connect to the TV, but which are mostly used to listen to Spotify through the Chromecast with Google TV.
Due to the aforementioned quest into IEMs and headphones I am pretty much broke. I was looking at either getting some active speakers like the Edifier R1280, R1700 or R2000 (which are all in an outlet so relatively cheap) or getting passive speakers with a A/V receiver. I saw some Dali 505’s and Jamo S426’s.
Since I know nothing, absolute 0, about speakers, I have no idea how these would compare and what the best option would be for me. Should I look for active or passive speakers? Are any of the things I mentioned any good?
