Hi all,

I'm looking to upgrade from my Logitech z623s and was stuck deciding between the A5+ and Eris E5. I've heard the E5s in person and they're light years ahead of the Logitech's, but I can't seem to find many reviews of the E5s online. On the other hand, the A5+ is a highly touted set of desktop speakers for being under $500 with a plethora of reviews online.

Any help will be appreciated!

Massdrop has the LSR30X drop active again. They're JBL LSR305s for $179 a pair vs $150 each on Amazon. I don't know how long the drop will last and it only comes around a few times a year. The Massdrop speakers are hand matched to within 1db.

Probably the best nearfield monitors around at that price point. You'd likely need a sub but you would with the other choices as well.

Thanks I'll probably get those then! I'm looking at the connections and it says they have XLR and TRS connections. I'm not too familiar with them, how would I go about connecting a DAC (Modi 2), these monitors, and a sub (Klipsch R-12SW) together?

The drop page says there are only 16 left so do it quick if you're going to do it. lol

There are a bunch of videos on youtube on the different ways to connect them as well as sound reviews.

NSFW language but his reviews are entertaining. If you have a Modi you may already know Zeos.
