im new to all this speaker stuff so i don't know much.


currently looking for a pair of speaker + amp (if needed) + sound card (looking at xonar d2x or essence stx currently) with a budget of $1000 SGD, which is about 700 USD
was told that passive speaker which needs an amp can easily win over a powered speaker. so i don't mind putting in the extra budget for it.
i prefer something more towards warm signature. subwoofer will come later since im currently using my computer in the living room, which makes me unable to play music with subwoofer at night. so i would rather go for a better pair of 2.0.

was looking at audioengine a5+ but then someone told me that it wasn't worth it as it doesn't sound the great on the lows and mid
was told that KRK rokit 5 sounds amazing with xonar d2x

currently using some <$10 speaker T_T

Well first off, never buy speakers you haven't heard in person. Head on out to a high end music store and listen (bring some music of yours to play on them). Check reviews on audiosolutions.net.au.
