I’m currently running the little engines that could RB42’s off a Sony STRDH190 plugged in to my Lg CX via an old SMSL DAC/amp because my amp doesn’t have optical in and I occasionally use headphones to watch movies if its late.
I use the setup for 50% streamed TV and movies, 25% gaming, 25% music(mostly a headphone listener so more for ambience or party, not critical listening)
I would consider adding a sub like the SE12 but I’m not in a position where I am considering a center channel or surround setup.
I appreciate the convenience that a lot of the powered options provide, bluetooth, subout, remotes but I mostly want them to SOUND like an upgrade from my current setup.
I have had my eye on a few different powered speakers-
Klipsch The Fives
Edifier S3000 pro
Any options in my price range that I’m missing?
What would you guys recommend?
I live in Vancouver Canada so availability of things like the Swans is pretty scarce.
I’m hoping to keep the cost around 1000 cdn
