As the title suggested, I am using a computer with sound card (creative sound blaster titanium x-fi) and speaker is creative t40.
I have two options in mind. First is getting a better active speaker (like airpulse a100 or yamaha nx-n500). Second is a combination of desktop mini power amplifier and passive speaker (nothing in mind though). I think the second one provides me more flexibility in choosing as there are lots of passive speakers to choose from.
As I am not familiar with the second option, I would like to ask for some input for the pro and cons in doing so. Thank you.
Also, it will be nice to have some suggestions. The budget is about 600 USD.
