TLDR: I want to upgrade my speakers and possibly other parts of my setup or optimize them for around $500 and would love advice or recommendations for what to get or not to get.
Currently have micca mb42x w/ smsl sa-50 and polk psw10 running off a miniDSP HD and am really loving the control the miniDSP gives me. Wanna upgrade but not sure what would be best (speakers, amp, sub) I’m thinking speakers would give me the biggest upgrade and not sure what to go with if I go that route. Its a PC desk setup and the room is an odd shape so I could probably do some work in the room as well. I have considered rearranging and am currently considering a new desk so maybe I could also get speaker stands if needed. I have them currently on handmade shelves since the desk I use now is too small for all my stuff, but that means they are a bit too high up for ideal listening experience. The sub is probably bigger than I need but it was cheap and I had to be within a budget at the time. Kinda want a better amp but really only want to spend about $500 so I feel like my money should go elsewhere if possible.
Thanks in advance for any replies!
PS: I would not include upgrades to the space in my $500 budget. Things like a new desk/speaker stands would be extra and I don’t mind spending more to get that kinda stuff.
