Suggest Good 2.0 or 2.1 Speakers Budget 15k


Here are the options Im looking at (in order of my preference) :

H/K Soundsticks II
Audioengine A2
B&W MM-1
Klipsch Promedia 2.1
MX 6021
Logitech Z623

I listen to Trance, Ambient, House, Techno. For me Clarity > Bass. Speakers will be in the bedroom. Room = 10x10 (approx)
While, I really want razer mako 2.1 speakers, but they are hard to find in India also they are around 18k. If someone can provide details on where i can get them in mumbai it'll be greatly appreciated.

Also suggest some good sound cards upto 5k. Would it be worth the money and better than onboard sound of asusp8p7 deluxe ?

.Peace.

I would suggest the FiiO E7 or the NuForce uDAC for the soundcard, I listened to the MX5021 and the uDAC and was blown away.

I haven't heard any of them, but the A2's are supposed to be good.
As for the MX6021, they currently aren't worth their price. Apparently.

Audioengine A2 are good but if your room is big, then their output won't be satisfactory.If possible, put 3K more and go for the A5.They're available at Bajaao for 18K.But do upgrade to a good sound card later for pure audio bliss.For now you can buy the Xonar DX.Available at Lammy for 4-4.5K.Also Audioengine A5 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Razer Mako anyday.

Alternately you can invest in a good sound card like Xonar Essence ST/STX and hunt for used MX5021.That will also save you some money..............Cheers !

Re: Suggest Good 2.0 or 2.1 Speakers Budget 15k

Well room is small and from what I hear a2's require a medium sized room. A5's are out of question as they're way too much power for my small room. Any opinions on H/K Soundsticks II , Promedia 2.1 and Z623? Z623 n Promedia are THX certified but Z623 has mixed reviews. Shit. Im confused

Audioengine A2 ---- Very Good speakers for pc based listening.
B&W MM-1 -- Life style design, average sound, quality, over priced (cant get in India under 40k approx)
Klipsch Promedia 2.1 --- Good Speakers but A2 is much better.
MX 6021 --- Good speakers but not good as the A2 .
Logitech Z623 ---- Average sounding but not bad.
Razer mako 2.1 ----- Over priced and slightly above average sounding

Best choice would be the A5 or a Swan M200MKII

Also suggest some good sound cards upto 5k--- when you spend this much on speakers i say get the Asus xonar essence STX for two channel analogue output.

Would it be worth the money and better than onboard sound of asusp8p7 deluxe ? - Considering the sound quality of Xonar essence STX "YES x 10 times"
.
Best of luck.

Like Raja said, I would suggest you the AudioEngine 5 but if your budget is fixed then I would suggest you AudioEngine 2 or Wharfedale Diamond 10.1 / 10.2

I'm not sure if you can avail Swan M200MKII

@Popo - budget is no problem but the A5's are way too much for my small room.

@RajaPraveen - I came to the thread to post that I have finally decided on A2 + Xonar Essence STX and whats amazing to see is that you suggest the same thing. So A2 + Xonar Essence STX is the way to go. Thanks for your suggestions guys.

.Peace.

@tkin
Asus Xonar PCI express Audio Card | ASUS Xonar Essence STX Sound Card | Buy Audio card

@nikhil
I've decided on the Audioengine A2's. They sound much better and take lesser space, which I always prefer.

Yes, that's right. If you don't have enough room space I think AudioEngine 2 are perfect or you.

I really have very less idea , but i have listened to MX5021 and it was astonishing , so real was the drumbeats, i was fooled into thinking that it was coming from outside.
