Currently, I am in the middle of a house remodel and with that, I will also upgrade my home office setup including changing my desk to an Ikea Karlby Setup. my current audio setup consists of a 15-year-old set of Behringer Truth 2031’s powered by a Sony TA-FE370. this amp was a gift from my brother and it has worked well but I have no clue if this is a good amp or not can’t really seem to find much about it.
next to this I also have an IFI zen DAC that is driving an HD660S and I have a Fiio k5pro that is driving a 250ohm DT 770pro.
since I am going to a smaller desk setup my current desk is 80cm from the front till the back and the Karlby will be only 63,5 I wanted to go for maybe a smaller speaker than the truth’s but hopefully still with great sound. I generally use the speakers for most of my listening of music, movies, series, and games, where I don’t need positional audio my music taste, is very broad from but mostly salsa/bachata and pop/singer-songwriter kind of music. I don’t have my music very loud since I have neighbors and the walls aren’t the thickest. but as i will also use the other side of my home office as a gym/dance studio for home training i would like the speakers to be able to fill the room when needed. room is about 3.5 meters by 4.7 meters
As I live in Holland I am limited in what I can and cannot get for instance I was looking into the Vanatoo T0 but they don’t ship outside of the US so that is a no-go.
I have been looking into both powered and passive speakers but would prefer to stick to around a 400 euro budget total either a fully new amp (haven’t really looked into that yet) with passive speakers, fully dump the amp and go for powered, or maybe a more expensive set of passives on the current amp. also stands or no stands I never had the truth on stands but if some of the speakers really benefit from them then that could be an options
what I have been looking at is listed below but I can’t really make a decision and now with all the shops being closed, it’s impossible to go to a shop to listen and compare.
